We know that most people can do more. Soup cans are an excellent substitute for light hand weights. Since they’re not as heavy as a weight you normally train with, we can incorporate some static holds or small bounces to intensify the workout. Soup cans may be too light for some exercisers, but for someone with arthritis or someone recovering from an injury, they may provide enough resistance to increase strength.
To make similar gains on both sides of your body, choose soup cans of the same weight or use a soup can for both sides.
