I wanted to share some great weight lifting exercises that are designed just for the women out there. These will help all women tone up and shed fat off their body, all while holding onto a nice feminine figure.
Dumbbell Press On Ball: Grab one of the big balls at the gym, along with two dumbbells. Lay back on the ball, so the ball supports your upper back and have your feet out in front of you. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, cock your elbows out and push the weights straight up in the air. Repeat this 10 times and take a break. Repeat the process another two times. This exercise will work your chest and the back of your arms.
Dumbbell Squats: Grab a set of dumbbells and hold them at your sides. Keep your back straight and squat down to a “chair" position, and then stand straight again. This exercise will work your legs and will give you that nice butt you want.
Dumbbell Skull Crushers: Grab just one dumbbell weight and hold it above your head. This can be a little awkward to grip, so make sure you have a good grip. Slowly bend your arms back, so the weight falls behind your head. Push the weight back directly above your head. This will work the back of your arms and help to get rid of any excess fat in that area.
These three weight lifting exercises are just for women, so give them a try. They'll have your body toned up and in better shape in no time.
