Hey, I’m Jake of Body by Jake and here is your fitness tip of the day. It’s hammer time. I mean hammer curl time and Aisha and Michelle are going to show us how we do it.
We have some light weights and two cans of Momma’s tomato paste. So as always, if you’ve been watching along, feet shoulder width apart, knees are bent slightly, takes the pressure off that lower back.
Now instead of doing a bicep curl, where your palms are facing up. We’re going to turn them in and we’re going to hammer them up. Here we go. Aisha, let’s go bring them up, and down.
The hammer curl’s a great exercise to work the outside of the bicep, between the bi’s (biceps) and the tri’s (triceps). The brachialis exercise, brachialis muscle, but you know what, it feels great and you’re going to look terrific.
Take it at your own pace. Breathe normally, have some fun and we are smiling.
“Like we always say, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit, it’s when things seem worst that you must not quit. That’s right! Don’t quit! Have a great day!”
