I don’t know about you, but I voted for Michelle Obama! That’s my girl right there. Our First Lady is one tough momma and she’s got the guns to prove it. When people get political during our workouts, it’s usually to ask me how to get her arms! The MObama workout: these three simple moves will get your biceps popping — and you don’t even need a gym. Get some dumbbells; you can also use old milk jugs filled with water if you’re super broke. Just don’t drop those, because you’ll be cursing my ass out during cleanup and I don’t need any cosmic negativity flying at me.
1. Bicep Curls: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart with knees slightly bent. Keep the back straight, elbows at the dies and curl the weights forward to work the bicep.
2. Triceps Kickback/reverse curl: Bend forward slightly, knees still bent, back flat, and push the weights towards the back of the room, then curl the arms back to touch the weights to your shoulders.
3. Dips: Using a chair back or table, support your weight with your hands behind you in a half-seated position, keeping the arms straight. Back should be straight with feet pointed outwards, then bend the arms to dip down into a full “L” shape, and straighten them to push back up to the half-seated position.
