The sisterhood of female bodybuilders finally gets some R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
Femme Flex Friday host Alina Popa decided that this week’s episode should hit the road. Well, the 2018 Rising Phoenix World Champion opted to hit the gym instead. She was joined by another champion bodybuilder, 2020 Ms. Olympia winner Andrea Shaw. Shaw was kind enough to share a few training tips for viewers that could benefit from some tricks of the trade from the No. 1 female bodybuilder on the planet.
Biceps – Isolation Preacher Curl
Shaw uses dumbbells and focuses on working one arm at a time when she starts her biceps routine. Her suggestion to this exercise is to not shortchange the range of motion for the sake of using more weight. “The key to the movement is to fully extend the arm before raising it back up.” Shaw prefers to perform 15-20 repetitions with this exercise.
