Re: Anything for arms getting all wrinkled?
I have been using weights for about 3 months. Feet are ailing due to plantar fasciitis and cannot walk treadmill.
My exercise routine is to sit on a large exercise ball holding weights and bouncing up and down on ball. On the down bounce I heave with the weights in doward motion, not too hard. Be sure and keep shoulder muscles in the back contracted to avoid problems with the upper arms. I hold upper arms downward and lower arms stretched out with weights in hands.
I bounce 50 times then roll back and forth 15 times on ball keeping feet flat on floor in same place, this tightens tummy muscles. Next I sit still and raise weights above head with arms straightened out slowly exhaling on the raising part and exhale on lowering part. Back to bouncing , repeat the 3 things for about 30 minutes. While rolling back and forth I rest weights on legs to rest so they will not be too tired for the bounce or raising.
Cetaphil lotion or cream is good. Use morning and night for best results. My cupboard is full of various lotions and cream, just call it a store!! However, the Cetaphil seems to work the best.
Be sure and drink lots of water to keep skin hydrated, at least 8 glasses per day other than coffee, tea, or soda pop. I am not a water drinker but have to work at it.
