Exercise: The towel pull
Exercises: Upper arms
This simple static exercise can give your upper arms a real work-through if you put your heart into it.
Just grab a kitchen towel and hold it above your head while pulling to the sides as much as you can. Keep the tension for about 30 seconds or so before resting. Flip your egg, or whatever you are doing, and then go at it again.
Exercise: Manual cooking
Situation: In the kitchen
Leave your electric kitchen toys in the cabinets, it’s time to go manual!
It takes 3 minutes to whip up a batch of meringue using an electric mixer and it takes about 6 if you use a manual whisk, but you will also get a killer lower arm workout as a bonus.
This is not a single workout but more of a general encouragement to leave your electrical kitchen tools in the cabinets. If you start baking your own bread you can both get a 15min arm workout while massaging the dough and at the same time you will make those horrible store bought buns a thing of the past.
