Sarah Dussault: Welcome to the calorie minute. I am Sarah Dussault with Stephen Cabral, body-transformation expert. Today Stephen is going to be showing me a summer swimming arm routine. Now Steve, can you tell me a little more about this workout? Stephen Cabral: Yeah, these two exercises can be done literally at home and just with -- well I have two different bands here today, but you can use different tensions on your band by just walking little further out or coming close to the machine. So what we're going to do is we're going to take lighter band today. I want to work the triceps first and then we'll come right into the biceps. Sarah Dussault: Okay. Stephen Cabral: So what I am going to do is wrap this right around this post here. At home you can use a band that closes right into your door or you just attach it with just some fixed object. Sarah is going to hold them right beside her head. She is going to lunge forward with one leg. She is going to make sure she is stable and then pull the elbows closely together. Then from here, looking straight ahead, she is going to extend forward, working her triceps. So basically from right above the elbow all the way up to her arm pit, she is toning these muscles underneath her arm. And again, it's too easy. You just screw yourself out a little bit and if it's too hard, you move a back a little bit. Let's do one more, moving out, excellent. Alright and come on back out of the bands. The second one we're going to do is a band attached lows. So again attach it low in the door or just have it attached in any fixed object down the ground. So she is going to either keep a parallel stance here or it's diagonal stance, it's up to her to feel balance. So her palms face her body and what she is going to do now is keeping the handles enclosed, she is going to curl up, so her palms facing the ceiling now. They come back, they face her sides and she is alternatively coming right back up. I am having Sara keep her elbows back in our curl right in front, so she keeps greater tension on the bicep so we get really better results. We tone the biceps and forearms to a better degree. Let's do one more, breathing in, come right back up breathing out, awesome job, such a super set. Triceps then biceps, each one takes somewhere around 30, 60 seconds. You rest for about 30, 60 seconds, usually a minute and go right back into it. That's it. Sarah: Awesome definitely.
