Arms- Round 2

If you’ve made it this far, you probably aren’t human. For weeks 4-6 of the Split(ish) Fitness Routine, this is how you’ll turn those biceps into softballs, triceps into horseshoes, and shoulders… into better looking shoulders(?). I dare you to try and touch your hand to its own shoulder mid-workout, and see how that goes.

*Cable Swords are somewhat of my own invention. you want to grab the cable (set at the lowest setting on the machine) with the hand opposite of your hip, and pull outward and upward. You should look like you are unsheathing your Samurai sword.
