Are you ready for the holiday season? Most people think of shopping and cooking but how about the many times you will pick up young kids or babies at the family gatherings. This is the continuing series of functional movement strength training using a chair. This one is called “Pick up the Baby” and helps strengthen the biceps.

PICK UP THE BABY: Loop the band around each foot and grasp the end closest to you with palms facing inward. Keeping the hands close together and the elbows in, raise the hands to chin-level. Return to starting position slowly. Perform 2-3 sets of 10-15 reps.
