This next exercise is a simple bicep curl. We’ve probably all done this at one point in our life.

All you need is a simple set of dumbbells, and it’s great for someone with metabolic syndrome because it’s easy to do at home with very little equipment.

The bicep curl is an exercise that we’ve probably all done at some point in our life. It involves a simple curling motion with a set of dumbbells, perhaps even some soup cans or other heavier objects that you have around the house.

It involves the muscles in the front of your arm. Keep your knees a little bit bent to protect your back. I find that a stagger on the feet helps to promote good posture.

So there’s a simple bicep exercise that you can do at home. If you want a program that’s a little more customized to your needs, please consult your local physiotherapist, exercise specialist or trainer.
