In my classes we do an exercise of 10 repetitions of "launches". From a sitting position with a pair of dumbbells at our sides we stand, lift the dumbbells to our shoulders and then push them overhead (one side at a time), return to the starting position and repeat 10 times. Have a rest till breathing normal, then repeat for 5 lots of ten. You may have to raise the level of your chair with cushions to give your legs a good start.

Thanks for sharing, babsnz!

It's great when members reveal what is working for them, so we all can switch our activities up to avoid boredom and too much routine. Here are a few other Upper-Body and No-Gym Exercises that you may like.

Keep up the great work!
