2018 is here, ladies, which means it is time to get rid of those flabby arms! The best part is you don’t even have to do pushups. No woman wants that flab swaying to and fro when she picks her arm up. That’s what this workout is for, so let’s get to it. Grab some 3 or 5 pound weights because you are going to use them for every exercise. If you don’t have weights, you can use resistance bands. If you don’t have either of those things, you can use some cans of soup.
Exercise #1: Arm Circles
Place your feet shoulder width apart, and extend your arms out to the side. Do 10 small circles going forward. You want to make sure that you are standing straight and engaging your shoulders. Now rotate your palms up and make 10 backward circles.
Exercise #2: Lateral Lifts
Bring your arms down to your sides and start your lateral lifts out to the sides and back down. Squeeze your shoulders and don’t slouch. Do about 10-12 of these.
Exercise #3: Bicep Curls
When you finish that last lateral lift, bring your arms down to your sides, face your palms forward, and start doing some bicep curls. You want to squeeze your bicep every time, not your forearm. Do about 10 of these.
Exercise #4: Military Press
Don’t put your arms down because you are not done yet. Go straight from the curls into these presses. Bend your arms and raise your fists above your shoulders, with your elbows out to the sides. Your palms should be facing forward. Press straight up, engaging your triceps and shoulders. This is really going to tone those arms.
Exercise #5: Tricep Extensions
Hold both weights (or one heavier weight) next to each other behind your head with your elbows above your head. Extend your arms up towards the ceiling. Squeeze those abs and don’t move your elbows. You want to keep them in one place to really work your triceps.
Now…you get to repeat this whole workout. We recommend 3 rounds of this workout. Try to avoid resting between exercises. You can rest for about two minutes between each cycle, but then get back to it.
