Wednesday’s Write Weight

The first time I did one of these, I thought I was going to fall face first into the weights and chip my pearly whites or bring up the weight too quickly thus crushing my jaw! Using weights that have straight edges are highly recommended because the rounded ones have a tendency to roll which could cause one to do a forced arm straddle resulting in a broken nose! 

  • Get into plank position.
  • Pull up on the weight in a slow, controlled movement, keeping your elbow close to your side.
  • Alternate between both arms.
  • 10 reps, 2 sets
Start out with one set and a lower weight but after two weeks, up that weight! Challenge yourself–think of those sleeveless, summer shirts! 
Now . . . have at it!

  2. Oh, hurts so good, doesn’t it? I did The Shred program last year and that is where I first learned of this move. It’s the one I force myself to do with visions of tank tops and summer dresses swirling in my head 🙂
