Get your elbows ready for (almost) anything with Elbow CARs!
I promised a cool and "tough" 💀 post after the excess of smiles earlier...well here ya go! That's right, those are THREE pound weights in each hand! Training wheels are off, get hype!
👉 Squeeze the dumbbells tight the whole time. This will help you effectively irradiate and minimize compensations.
👉 Keep your shoulders and upper arms still as the elbows rotate.
👉 When you rotate at the top and bottom positions, your palms should not stay in the exact same space, they should "fold over."
✏️ In case you're curious, this is as close as I get to specific bi/triceps and forearm work. Mostly I do tons of high tension mobility work, and hold heavy weights while my legs lift 😂 If every day is leg day, your arms will be happy. Oh and I do LOTS of rows.
✏️ Try these first with no weight. It is surprising and humbling how hard it can be to do them correctly with even minimal weights! I also like doing them while squeezing a ball.
