Exercise: Shopping Bag Dumbbells
Situation: While waiting
Exercises: Upper arms
After you have been at the store and are carrying your shopping bags to wherever you are going, make sure you use the time for some upper arm exercises.
Try to load your shopping bags with about equal weight. It will be more comfortable if you use fabric shopping bags and it’s better for the environment.
Carry the bags along your sides as you are walking and pull your elbows up, like you were rowing. Repeat! You can both pull your arms up in parallel, or on at the time. This exercise will target your upper arms and shoulders.
You can also do this workout when carrying other heavy things. A suitcase for instance.
