Seated Bicep Curl | Exercises for Weight Loss Surgery Patients

Hi, my name is Michelle Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics, and today I’m going to show you some exercises that you can do, from home, at about two weeks postop.

Our next exercise is called the seated bicep curl. So what I’m going to have our friend Kristen do is grab those bottles of water again. Now folks, if you don’t have one or three pound dumbbells lying around at your house, you can use cans of soup or, like Kristen here, bottled water. Alright, so what I’m going to have Kristen do is sit up nice and straight. Draw your core in, which means sit up nice and tall. Bring your belly button in, shoulder back, perfect. Knees at a 90 degree angle, extend those arms all the way down. Keep those elbows glued to your ribs, glued to your sides and just bring those bottles of water up and back down again. That is one set. Do fifteen of these. Rest 30 seconds and do another set of fifteen. Good job Kristen.
