NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Rob Jason of Radikal Fitnezz joins Workout Wednesday with a exercise routine great for toning the arms and legs using weights. View the video and follow along with the steps below.

 Focus bicep cable 

  • Muscle groups worked: biceps brachii, brachialis and brachioradialis 
  • Secondary muscle groups:core
  • Standing on one end of a cable station holding a cable in one hand and the machine in the other straighten arm fully and curl towards your ear squeezing that bicep repeatedly for desired amount of reps. Rob Jason recommends 3 to 4 sets of 10 to 12 reps.
  • The focused bicep cable curl is a standing exercise that targets the bicep brachii brachialis and brachioradialis. It compromises all three muscle groups from the one-armed focus at a time. It also involves core with stabilization. 
  • Purposes: to build mass or lean biceps and toned arms.

Cable curl triceps extensions

  • Muscle groups worked: triceps
  • Secondary muscles groups: shoulders, chest, lats, and forearms, core.
  •  A tricep extension is a push-type, isolation exercise which works your triceps, but also trains your shoulders, chest, lats, and forearms, depending on how you perform the exercise.
  • Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, hips forward pull down on extension ropes all the way to waist line fully extending arms, then returning with control to starting position. Rob Jason suggests that you repeatedly do this for a desired amount of reps. If you are a beginner, try doing 3 to 4 sets of 12 to 15 reps.

  • Muscle groups worked: abductors,hamstrings lower back,core.
  • Using a chair or bench, use one leg to lead with and the other to stabilize. Thrust up with leading leg fully extended with a bent knee. This exercise should be done on both legs for a desired amount of reps.
