I love, love, LOVE going to gym classes like zumba and step and bodyjam, and it's definitely shifted a lot of pounds over the last couple of months. My main problem is upper-body exercises to deal with bingo wings/back cushions. The thought of using the weight section in the gym alarms me a bit, because it's always predominantly used by super-fit people doing proper weight training, and I'll end up feeling too self-conscious to use them in front of other people.
Does anyone have any good tips for upper body/weights-orientated exercises that I can do at home? I'm happy to buy a set of dumbbells if needed, anything to avoid using the machines at the gym in front of people.
Any help/advice much appreciated!
