Walking Curl & Press Variations

Sports, recreation, and life share many common themes. One, in particular, is transitional in nature. For instance, when it comes to running faster, it requires a transition from quick feet, step, to stride frequency. Or, transitioning a resistance – such as a light weight – between upper and lower extremities.

Using two small water bottles as weights or very light dumbbells (1-3 pounds), walk along a path performing curling then transitioning to palms-in overhead presses. Perform 10 repetitions, while walking. Be sure to contract your stomach muscles, as you press the weights overhead and maintain an upright position. Keep the weights close to the body. A variation would be to alternate curling and pressing with each arm – transitioning with one weight coming down, while the other arm is moving overhead.

Remember, you should always consult your physician before beginning any exercise, diet, or nutritional supplementation program.
