LIBRARYBOB, every other day is fine. You should not work the same muscles every day. I usually work on upper body one day, then lower body the next, then abs, then a day of complete muscle rest with just an easy walk. It's important to give muscles a day of rest to repair and rebuild.
I was looking for a quick arm workout to do today during my lunch hour and this one worked perfect. I used 8 lb weights and that might have been a little too much but I did about half with the weight and half without. It was great. I am going to save this and try to do it more often to work on my upper body strength. Great office workout! :)
Loved it, but had to keep switching dumb bells as some were too difficult for 8#, and others they were no problem. Used 4# for those extending out from shoulder height and then sweeping up. Then switched back and forth between 6# and 8# for others. Thanks for a great start to my morning!

Excellent. Really loosened up my shoulders and arms.
I am recovering from an abdominal surgery and am only allowed to exercise from a chair to reduce strain to my abdominal muscles. Love this workout to help maintain some upper body strength while I recuperate! Loving all of the seated workouts, thanks for helping me feel like the next few months won't be 100 steps backwards!!!
