Bend at the elbow and curl weight up in front of your shoulder. Make sure that your arms stay tight against your body and that you are only using your arms to curl up. Do not thrust with your hips or push with your legs for assistance as this can indicate that your weight may be too heavy. Dips (weight on lap) Use an elevated surface such as a bench, step, couch, log, etc. Place weights on your lap, slide your butt off and straighten your legs outward. Lower your body until your elbows are bent to a 90 degree angle. Return to straight armed position and repeat. Modification to make easier: keep your legs in a bent position with feet flat on floor, creating a 90 degree angle in your knee. Perform dip motion described in dip basic exercise above Modification for more of a challenge: extend legs straight onto another parallel elevated surface with the weight on your lap. Perform dip motion described in dip basic exercise above Hiit Bar Bent Over Row Bend over by hinging at the waist, keeping your back flat and knees soft.
