1. Alternating DB Bench Press

To perform the alternating dumbbell bench press, you'll begin by lying flat on a workout bench with your chest up, your shoulders pressed together, your buttocks on the bench, and both feet flat on the floor. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, and press them above your body. Complete a bench press with one arm while the other remains straight above you. Then, do a bench press on the other arm. Keep alternating until you perform five reps for each arm.

2. Bicep Curls

Dumbbell curls, also known as bicep curls, begin with you standing up straight with a dumbbell in each hand. Your palms should face away from you at the sides of your body, PureGym explains. Activate your core, and maintain relaxed shoulders. Make sure your elbows don't stray far from your sides as you curl the dumbbells up toward your shoulders at the same time. Then, slowly lower the weights back down. Complete six reps.

3. Skull Crushers

Next up, you'll do some skull crushers. Lie flat on your back on a workout mat with both feet on the floor. Hold a dumbbell in each hand over your chest with the palms facing each other. Then, bend your forearms in the direction of your head while your upper arms remain still and your palms face each other. Return your arms to the extended position to complete one full rep. Perform six 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.

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?

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

Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety."
