Best Exercises For Sexy Arms And Back
No more being afraid to wear a chic sexy sleeveless dress or tank top because you’ve got a bad case of the arm jiggles.
Of course you can’t just wish for this to happen, you’ve got to work it! So, work it you will. Here’s what you need to tone and firm the jiggle zone. Let the sculpting begin!
You’ll need to be fully loaded with:
- Motivation and determination
- Dedicated time on your schedule – you need to do your strengthening exercises twice per week over 30 minutes
- Floor workout mat or towels
- A few hand dumbbells and/or elastic tubing
- Access to a gym is optional
Cardio: Although emphasis must be placed on weight training, you must be doing your fat burning cardio as well. Aim to stay as physically active as you can every day. Schedule a 400 calorie cardio session 4-5 days per week incorporating intensity intervals.
Pushup and Sculpt Up
This nifty little exercise actually works six muscles at once – biceps, triceps, shoulders, chest, abdominals and glutes. Get onto all fours on a mat or fold three towels – one placed under each bent knees and one where your forehead will touch the ground.
Kneeling on the towels with ankles crossed, position your hands shoulder width apart on the floor directly underneath your shoulders. With elbows as well as your back straight, and holding your body weight, tuck your chin in and slowly lower yourself until your forehead touches the towel or mat. Your chest should not touch the floor.
Now push yourself back up to the starting position. The goal is to gradually train and build so that you can do 10 repetitions. Don’t fret if you do one and find yourself speed dialing 911. We’ve all been there. Just be patient and keep good form. Excellent form is the most important thing.
Get Rid Of That Jiggle
It’s the fat that surrounds the triceps that tends to flap in the wind. How about we strengthen that triceps and keep the sculpting happening?
Grab a single arm dumbbell – from 1-10 pounds for beginners – in just one hand. It helps to do…
