I’m no stranger to weak arms. Growing up a runner, you can bet I never performed a dumbbell arm workout!
Heck, I never learned what a proper push-up looked like…let alone could do one.
My arm weakness became embarrassingly evident when I went to college. I struggled to get luggage into the train’s overhead rack while traveling during Christmas break. And turning a patient during nursing school clinicals was always accompanied by a snide remark about how I’d need help.
I’m definitely not the most buff human around now either, but I never wanted to worry about not being able to lift something by myself. Those little moments were the jumping off points for my dedication to weight training.
