Day 24: Windshield wipers - arm stretch
by AccountingWEB on
Today's exercise strengthens your arms and also can be used as part of a warm-up routine for other exercises. You can do this exercise while sitting upright in your desk chair.
Step 1: With both arms extended to the side, bend at the elbows, allowing your forearms, wrists, and hands to drop straight down.
Step 2: Return arms to a straight position, just like the windshield wipers on your car.
Step 3: Repeat 16 times.
When you're finished, do a relaxing movement to prevent your arms from feeling sore.
Step 1: Bend at the waist.
Step 2: Let your arms drop straight down and shake them out all the way from your shoulders.
