I've always been so inspired by Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2. I just found "apparently" her workout that got her in to that fantastoc shape! I don't know if this is the right place, or if anyones actually interested, but I'm gonna try it and see how I go! The three upper-body workouts code-signed by Cortes and Yee, described in the chart below, draw from the same group of exercises, but differ in terms of results. If you could care less about muscle definition, but would like to do enough weight training for muscle tone and health, do Workout 1. If you've set your sights on a pretty "cut" and some significant gains in strength, do Workout 2. If your goal is to achieve something akin to Linda Hamilton's Terminator 2 physique, Workout 3 is a great start -- it will yield the maximum muscle you can get on your own. For all three workouts, you will need weights -- a buildable dumbbell set and a barbell are ideal because they will give you the most weight options -- as well as an incline bench. The amount of weight you use will depend on you: For each exercise, pick the heaviest weight that will allow you to complete eight repetitions while maintaining good exercise form; when your muscles don't feel tired by the last rep or two, increase to ten reps, and then to 12. When 12 reps is easy, increase the amount of weight you use and start over with weight. Workout 1: Twice a week, with two days of rest between exercise sessions 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps for each move Dumbbell bench press One-arm rows Lateral raises Kickbacks Standing curls Workout 2 Three times a week -- i.e., every other day 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps per move Dumbbell bench press Inclined flies One-arm rows Bent-over rows Lateral raises Front raises Standing curls Kickbacks Workout 3 Four times a week: Mondays, Thursdays (work chest, shoulders, triceps) Tuesdays, Fridays (work back, biceps) 4 sets of 8 to 12 reps per exercise Dumbbell bench press Inclined flies Lateral raises Front raises Kickbacks One-arm rows Bent-over rows Standing curls Exercises for Muscle - A Little to a Lot These upper-body exercises are all you need to put some shape into summer-bared arms -- or go all the way to real sculpted definition. 1. Dumbbell bench press (FOR CHEST) A. Lie on bench with knees bent and feet flat on bench. Holding a dumbbell in each hand, straighten arms directly above chest, palms facing feet. B. Bend elbows until upper arms are even with chest. Return to starting position. 2. Inclined dumbbell flies (FOR CHEST) A. With bench in inclined position, lie on back, legs bent and feet on floor. Grasping a dumbbell in each hand, straighten arms above chest, weights together and palms inward. B. Slowly bend arms until elbows drop just below chest level. Return to starting position. 3. One-arm dumbbell rows (FOR BACK) A. Place your bent left knee and left hand on a flat bench. Hold a weight in your right hand and straighten your right arm toward the floor until you feel a slight stretch in your upper back. B. As if pulling something from the ground, bend your right arm as far as possible, keeping your elbow near your body. Return to starting position. Complete all your sets on one side, then switch to the other. 4. Bent-over bar row (FOR BACK) A. Stand at end of inclined bench, holding barbell with hands slightly wider than shoulders. Bend forward so that forehead rests on bench. Feet are shoulder-width apart, knees relaxed and abdominals tight. B. Bring barbell as close to chest as possible. Return to start. 5. Lateral raises (FOR SHOULDERS) A. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees relaxed. Grasp a dumbbell in each hand and position arms at sides, palms facing in and elbows soft. B. Raise arms straight out to sides to shoulder level, palms facing floor. Lower arms to starting position. 6. Front raises (FOR SHOULDERS) A. Stand with knees soft and feet shoulder-width apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, palms forward. B. Raise arms to shoulder level, keeping shoulders and elows relaxed. Lower arms to starting position. 7. Standing curls (FOR BICEPS) A. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees relaxed. Hold a bar in front of your body with hands slightly wider than shoulder-distance apart. Palms face forward. B. Bring bar toward chest, keeping elbows in and abdominals tight. Don't let wrists bend backward. Lower bar to starting position. 8. Kickbacks (FOR TRICEPS) A. Stand with knees bent and left hand on left knee for support. With a dumbbell in right hand, bend elbow, keeping it next to waist. B. Straighten arm, elbow close to body; lift straight arm just slightly at the end of the move. Return to starting position. Complete all sets, then switch sides.
