Munson Home Workout Series: Arm Exercises

We are back in the gym again, bit by bit completing a total-body workout with the Munson Hospital Healthy Weight Center.

The last two installments were on modified burpees and a leg workout—all of which can be done from home.

These new exercises work the arm muscles, and best of all, they can be done from a chair.

Exercise Specialist Ben Watson first shows us a shoulder press that can be done with weights, soup cans, two-liter pop bottles—however you like.

The next exercise is called a lateral raise.

It can use anything balanced for weights that you prefer, or can even go without weights for beginners.

Watson says the key to both is moving slowly and keeping up a straight posture, sitting up and more towards the front half of your seat.

“Pick something that’s comfortable for you, and we still want to stay around 10 to 15 reps,” he says.

Coming next week: the final installment to the Munson home workout series includes more arm exercises. Altogether, these exercises create a routine for beginners that will work out the whole body.
