I did these this morning instead of yesterday.
MINNIE - I started the week well but needed to prioritise time on other things at the end of the week - I managed some (not all) of the exercises but didn't get online to post
These were really well-timed challenges for me. I was feeling really rundown and lazy this week in terms of strength training. It was nice to just "do what I was told" for the day. And I figure some isometric exercises were better than doing nothing!
i also had my palm facing horixontally and curled my fingers into each other and tried to pull them apart.
my bicep muscles are beginning to return. and did a set of uppers with stretchy band.
dizzy, thanks so much for the week!! wish you had participated, too.

Team Challenge 10/14/12 - Saturday 20th October 2012
Upper body: aim to perform each exercise AT LEAST 3 times throughout the day, more if you can. Remember to exert as much force as you can. Aim to hold for 10 seconds for each exercise (start with 5 seconds if you need to).
* While sitting or standing, pretend you are curling a weight, take your other hand and press it into your curling hand with a fist. Try to continue the curl, but apply maximum pressure with your fist as though you are trying to push through it. This works the biceps.
* While sitting, grasp your hands together in front of your chest, and firmly press them together. This works the biceps, triceps and chest.
If these exercises are not suitable please select one from a different day, or substitute your own – remember to rotate through the different body areas.
Come back here and share your experience – let’s do this together!
