It's Bare Arms Season - Time To Tone Up

Happy Monday. Hope your day has gone well. I'm late getting posted today, but amazed it got done at all. It's been a crazy few days with so many extra-curricular activities going on that my head is still swirling a bit.

Hey, it's bare arm season and there no better time to tone up the arms. Legs usually maintain at least some muscle tone by the sheer effort to walk. And often times people only see from your calf down. I always think if there's one thing you can do to really improve your looks in the summer months it's tone up the arms.

Grab a pair whatever size weights you can handle and start pumping a little iron while watching TV, for short breaks at your desk or any time you have a little down time. It's amazing how quickly they can start getting a pretty little shape going. You can even use cans of food if you don't have weights. Keep pushing yourself as you build muscle to do more and more reps and increase the weight you are using. Beautiful arms are very, very sexy. Waving at friends with your tricep giggling is not so sexy.

Here are a some great online arm workouts:

Ultimate Arms by Women's Health Magazine
Toned Arms In Record Time by Shape Magazine
How To Sculpt Sexy Arms... by US Magazine

My favorite exercises are tricep dips, bicep and tricep curls and push ups. Push ups are amazing for toning the entire upper body. Are you ready for bare arm season? What do you like to do to buff up the arms? I'm always looking for new ideas.

That's a good point. There's no excuse not to do this! And if you don't have weights, you can just use canned food :)

Loved the third link possibly because I want to look like Tracy Anderson, but brunette.
