Get the Arm Candy for Your Heart
The benefits of an upper body ergometer do not just come down to a vanity play of getting a little arm candy, it also comes down to overall health. That’s why upper body ergometers (UBE) are so widely used by elite athletes and sports teams. So, the next time you use Excy to tone your upper body, make sure to think about the wonderful benefits of moving your shoulder joints, firing your core stabilizing muscles, and getting some upper body conditioning. In today’s live streaming challenge, we explored using Excy for bicep curls and it’s a heck of a lot more fun than dumbbell weights.
