Featured Exercise: The Monkey: 5/4/2011

The Monkey

The Monkey is an exercise that I developed for my SilverSneakers classes. It is a simple exercise that attacks the biceps, wrist flexors and extenders, a little bit of triceps, and the deltoilds. It can be done seated and standing. 


Starting position

Curl your wrists up towards your body, bend your elbows, and raise your dumbbells up towards your armpits. Return to starting position.

Once back in starting position move into wrist extension to jump start a side lateral raise. 

Perform a side lateral raise. You can modify this exercise to be a front raise, overhead raise, or any other favorite overhead exercise.
