The bicep-tricep station at Curves gyms is one of several pieces of apparatus described as a "double positive" machine. It's designed to work muscles on the up-swing, and the down-swing, which works two muscle groups at a time, for a doubly efficient work-out. Lynn Pascoe runs the Curves gym at Long Jetty, and is the area manager for Curves International. "This exercise is great for women who want to improve their upper arms so that they can carry the kids, carry the groceries, and do all of the things that women have to do every day," Lynn said. "And because our machines are based on liquid hydraulics, and not weights, this exercise helps to create long and lean muscles instead of muscle bulk." Here's how to do it... • Start by sitting at the machine with your feet flat on the floor. • Avoid slouching by holding the abdominal muscles tight to hold your alignment. • Place your wrists between the rollers, and maintain a fist with your thumbs on top. • Simply power up and down with alternating arms. Powering up works the bicep. Powering down works the tricep. "By alternating the arms we avoid using the spine and swaying back and forth to complete this exercise," Lynn said. The bicep-tricep station is one of several pieces of apparatus used in a typical 30-minute Curves exercise class. Lynn Pascoe is a certified trainer and regional manager with Curves International. She is based at the Curves gym at 3/190 The Entrance Road, Long Jetty. Phone 4333 3494 or go to www.curvestheentrance.com.au ALTERNATE: Powering down works the tricep. TONING: Powering up works the bicep. STABLE: With your feet flat on the floor, slide your wrists between the rollers and make a fist. Pictures by Aaron Brown.
