    Last segment is upper body strength still and we are going to finish off with bicep curls.

    Today, what we are going to do is a drop set curls, we are going to do one set, but its 60 reps in total because its such a high number of reps thats why we are only doing one set. So, what she is going to start is she is going to start with curls both arms at the same time. Starting with 25s and doing ten reps. After she has finished ten reps she is going to keep dropping down, keeping good athletic position elbows in tight, bringing the arms up to the shoulders. So, 60 reps in total.

    Two, three, go faster, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, tenSo, she is going to put the weight down and grab the next set of weights right away and start it to the next set of ten. good, one, two, three, try to take your rock out, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, good.

    Putting the weight down, dropping it, getting the next, try to get the arms a little straighter if you can, there you go, one, two, three, keep the shoulder blades pinched, three, four, come on, come on come on there you go. There you go half way, come on, half left.

    One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, there you go, eight, nine, ten, good, two more, two more. There we go, come on, one, keep those shoulders pinched, two, there you go, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. There we go, last ten, last ten, last ten.
