Towel Pull-Backs

Tucker explains this exercise will work your whole arm while honing in on the back muscles to enhance your posture. All you need to have on hand is a workout towel.

Now, let's get started with Towel Pull-Backs. To effectively perform this movement, Tucker says you'll want to begin with a towel in both hands. Extend your arms out to the front of your chest, then pull outwards on the towel as if you're trying to tear it into two pieces. Tucker explains, "This is the key! The more you pull out to create your own resistance, the more you get out of the exercise."

From there, Tucker says you'll want to bend your elbows and bring the towel to your chest. At the same time, squeeze between both shoulder blades to give your rhomboids a workout. The last piece is to lengthen your arms back out. Repeat this movement 20 to 30 times.


Towel Pull-Downs

After completing Towel Pull-Backs, you can then add Towel Pull-Downs into your workout which is another exercise that simply requires a towel as equipment. This time around, Tucker says to start out by extending both arms over your head while holding your towel. Once more, pull the towel as though you're trying to tear it into two pieces. The difference for this exercise is you will bend both elbows while pulling down. Bring the towel to your shoulder height while keeping tension holding the towel.

Your lats should feel this workout while you pull down, and your shoulders should feel it as you extend your arms over your head. The goal is to repeat this exercise 20 to 30 times, or as Tucker says, "until you feel the burn."


Forearm Plank Openers

The final exercise in this bingo wings workout is the Forearm Plank Opener. This will give your biceps, back, and shoulders a workout while at the same time building strength in your core.

To perform this movement, you will start in a Forearm Plank with both of your palms facing upward. Then, slide each hand out to the side. Increase that space, then bring your fingertips back to point forward. Tucker notes that this movement will be a tiny one. To modify this exercise, lower your knees down in your plank while keeping your spine long. Aim for 2 to 3 sets of 16 reps.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
