What's the Deal With: BodyCircles

What's the Deal With: BodyCircles

I spend a lot of time strength training my upper body, but I'm so used to using dumbbells and doing push-ups, that I'm always looking for new ways to target my arms. Not only does it make my workouts more exciting, but it strengthens the muscles in my arms in a different way, which is great for preventing injury.

I'm not sure if you've ever tried these BodyCircles (on sale for $10), but you may want to pick some up if you're looking to isolate and tone the muscles in your upper body. These circles are padded and even though they don't look like much, they really do a beautiful job of targeting your biceps, triceps, shoulders, and upper back. Essentially they are like hula hoops for your arms. Spinning those circles forwards as well as backwards requires some coordination, but will build some strength and bring on the burn. There's a 14-minute instructional DVD included so you can learn how to strengthen your arms in just eight minutes. For under $10, it's quite a deal.

Maybe I'm just a product junkie, but I think this would be more fun than just doing arm circles. I've heard of ballerinas using bicycle tires to do develop their upper body. I bet it works great.

I agree Cebca, while reading this I spun my arms and after about a minute I feel the burn through my whole entire arm. Unless these rings are weighted, why spend the money.

You can just do arm spinners, without the rings, and get the same workout for free. Unless they're weighted, which I dont think they are. Just do one minute little arm circles forwards, one minute arm circles backwards, then one minute up-and-down. It's harder than it looks!

This sounds lame I know, but how coordinated do you have to be to use them effectively?
