Work Out the Abdominal and Latissimus Dorsi Muscles Together

Select free weights that are heavy enough to give you a workout but not too heavy that you cannot do four sets of ten repetitions on each side. Get on the floor with the palms of your hands and toes and balls of your feet. Use one free weight at a time. Stay as straight as you can, with your neck, back andf hips aligned. Lift the weight at your side until your elbows "passes" your waist for about four inches. Repeat a set with the other arm. You will use your abdominal muscles as stabilizers and also work out your latissimus dorsi muscles.

My third book, Pocket Guide to Fitness, is available on,, and If you look up my name on those Web sites, you will find my other books The Boy in a Wheelchair and Life, Work and Play: Poems and Short Stories.
