MUSCLES ENGAGED Biceps Biceps are the pair of muscles on the front of the upper arm connecting the shoulder to the elbow. Your biceps are used in everything from turning a doorknob to lifting heavy items. Strengthening your biceps can greatly reduce the "flabby arms" look. Equipment Used Exercise Band The exercise band is used in resistance training. The bands comes in a variety of colours depending on the amount of tension they offer. The exercise bands give constant resistance throughout the entire range of motion during an exercise and cause less stress on the joints. Exercise Instructions Step 1 Standing with your feet shoulder width apart and a slight bent in your knees. Keep your shoulders pulled back and your elbows in line with your hips while holding the exercise band in both hands. Step 2 Curl the exercise band up towards your shoulders and fully contract your biceps at the top of the motion. Step 3 Extend your arms to the starting position and make sure your elbows stay in line with your hips throughout the entire exercise.
