Tighten Your Abs, Bum and Thighs

Listen in as we reveal the secrets of whipping yourself into shape.

Works: Biceps, shoulders

Step #1: Standing with your feet about five centimetres apart, step on one end of a resistance band with both feet. Grab the handle of the other end with your right hand, and let your arm rest by your side, palm facing out. Using your bicep muscle, lift the band up until your palm reaches your shoulder.

Step #2: Move your arm out to the side (so it makes an L shape), and then press your arm up towards the ceiling. Do 15 reps; switch arms and repeat.

Variation
Works: Triceps
Start with your arm extended straight above your head. Bend your elbow until your fist is almost touching the back of your shoulder; push back up. Do 15 reps, then switch arms and repeat.
