Elbow Flexion
  • Choose to either stand with your feet a shoulder width apart, or find a chair without arms that you may sit down in with your feet flat on the ground. 
  • Selecting a light weight (no more than 5 pounds), hold the weight in your affected arm and keep your elbow tucked into your side. Keeping your upper arm stationary, raise your hand so the weight is being lifted toward your shoulder bending your elbow. Lower the weight to your original starting position. Make sure to perform the entire motion slow and controlled.
  • To challenge yourself, try holding the bent arm position for 5 seconds before lowering the weight. 
  • Try starting out with 2 sets of 10 repetitions working up to 3 sets of 15 repetions.
