Chicken and Free Weights

I do not mind some fat. In fact, I think for women it is essential to have some in the arms, legs, chest, and hips. One little piece of fat I can do without when it creeps up is front underarm fat, right between the shoulder and breast. Here is an exercise for both men an dwomen to firm up this area.

Grab one free weight with each hand. They must be heavy enough to give you a workout but light enough to finish four sets of ten repetitions. In a slow movement while keeping your shoulders down and keeping your elbows bent at 90 degrees, lift your arms as if doing a chicken clucking move. Lower the elbows back down to the waist. Repeat for four sets of ten repetitions.

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. These two books are on my Web site
