A lot of women share a common insecurity- their upper arms. I know you think you can't feel more confident without going to the gym every day, but you might be surprised how easy it can be to tone up your arms at home with just your body weight and a little consistency!!
Try squeezing these movements into your routine 2-3 days a week! Adjust the sets and reps as needed for your fitness level, but don't go too easy on yourself, you want to feel the BURN if you want results!
Tricep Dips- 3 sets of 20
Using a chair or other stable surface of similar height, move your feet away from the chair slightly and using your hands on either sides of your bum, lower yourself until your elbows are at approximately 90 degrees, and then push yourself back up to complete a rep. To increase difficulty, try holding one leg straight out alternating legs on each rep!
Push Ups-3 sets of 10
Pushups are a classic, so you probably know the drill! Starting with a flat back, hands shoulder-width apart, and arms straight, lower yourself until your elbows are at a 90 degree angle and push yourself back up! If needed, bend your legs and switch to your knees to modify!
Plank Ups-3 sets of 8
Starting in a planking position with arms and back straight, lower yourself to your forearms one arm at a time, and then return to plank position by straightening and pushing up one arm at a time for 1 rep!
Plank Jacks- 3 sets of 20
Starting in a planking position (this can be done on forearms or hands with straight arms) with feet together, quickly jump and spread feet apart (like jumping jack), for one rep, and back together for one rep.
The absolute most important thing to remember when trying to tone your arms, is that you HAVE to be consistent in order to see results. Your confidence and love for yourself is worth dedicating 20 minutes a few times a week to reach your goals!! If you need extra support, I'm always looking to help others reach their fitness dreams!! YOU CAN DO IT!!
With love and a little kick in the ass,
