Arms By Arlan™️ 1.9

5 Rounds For Time

12 DB Close Grip Bench Press

9 DB Seated Arnold Presses

6 DB Seated Biceps Curls

-Rest 1 minute between each round

*For this week’s Arms By Arlan, we will pick one pair of DBs to perform all three movements. Start by performing close grip bench presses (dumbbells should be touching). Then perform Arnold Presses while seated on the bench (both arms move at the same time). Then finish off with biceps curls while seated (both arms move at the same time). The curls and Arnold Presses will be your limiting factors so choose the weight wisely. We will rest 1 minute between rounds. Record weight used and total time to complete all 5 rounds.
