The Crow's Gym Thoughts: Vol. 142

Crow's #Gym Vol. 142
The good, the not so good, the bad and the horrible. That would be the title of my workout book should I ever write it. Like anyone else, I have good advice, bad advice and sometimes advice that becomes silly. This goes for almost anyone, and just because I can do something at the gym doesn't mean everyone else can. The important thing to do is try as many things as your body will allow and then figure out the things that work best for you. It's actually very little effort for the greatest rewards.

1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.

The Movement:
1. Pull the cables directly upwards towards your ears, bending your elbows out to the sides until the grips are beside your ears.
2. Hold for a count of two; then slowly let the grips out and back to the starting position.
Tips:
• Keep the grips parallel to the floor.
• Make sure you do not sway backwards as pull the grips towards you.
