  • WOW, this was a great workout! I had already completed my morning stair steps, and always do some weights halfway through, but now I will incorporate this exercise into my daily routine. I really feel a difference in my arms and shoulders, like there is more oxygen coursing through the veins. Thank you! - 9/30/2014 10:36:55 AM

  • Can't reach all the way to the floor but I can do this even with my hip limitations. Tried it with three pound weights, I think I'll do it with 1lbers for a while, have to build to the 3lbers, wasn't as controlled as I would have hoped. - 9/4/2014 11:42:25 AM
  • First day of trying to get back into exercising. Have bad back and stiff.
    This seated chair exercise was great! I feel like I can do this!
    Thanks - 9/1/2014 1:28:16 PM
  • Had to do it without the weights, but hopefully I can find my hand weights soon and try it again, make it work even more! Great routine! Definitely will be doing this one again! - 8/16/2014 11:49:19 PM
  • quite an upper body workout that is quick and not at all easy for me at this time - 8/14/2014 4:15:23 PM
  • thanks so much for this strenuous, comprehensive, quick exercise which targets the entire upper body, and most of all can be done on the run. - 8/7/2014 11:48:05 AM
  • This is great thank you. It works well. - 8/6/2014 6:17:38 PM
  • I love this video! I can feel it working my arms, and it makes me feel successful to be able to finish it! - 7/26/2014 3:28:54 PM
  • Can I just say that this is exactly what I have been looking for? I keep a light pair of weights under my desk, and now I have a great workout that takes the ho-hum out of the usual curls. I am going to share this with all of my desk-bound colleagues! Thank you! - 7/20/2014 11:04:51 AM
  • I enjoy doing this exercise I could do it everyday,thanks coach. - 7/19/2014 5:36:57 PM
  • I really like this video. It is a place where i am able to begin and work up to the level on the video without the risks involved with jumping around as I am a senior trying to get back into shape. This is encouraging. Thank you - 7/12/2014 11:18:50 AM
  • I love this video. I've never worked on my upper body before and I love that I can do it easily at my desk on my lunch break. - 7/7/2014 8:22:37 PM
