Body Blog: Arm Candy
I don’t know about you, but I am completely obsessed with arms. On guys, strong arms makes me feel protected and safe – not to mention, it’s uber sexy. On girls, nicely toned arms show a sense of empowerment and look great in sleeveless dresses. So, I’m finally dedicating this week’s workout to getting that sleek arm definition. These are extremely easy to do and they give you great results!
1. Arm Pulses
Bring your arms in front of you, clasp your hands together and keep your elbows as close to each other as possible. Raise your elbows to shoulder height. Continue the workout by raising it one inch higher and then lowering it back down, creating small pulses. This move will tone your deltoids (shoulder muscles). To increase the intensity, hold a weight or textboox in your hands. Pulse your arms for 30-60 seconds. Repeat 3 times.
2. Arm Circles
Bring your arms out to your sides, palms facing the ceiling, with a slight bend in them. Pretend you’re holding golf balls and draw little circles with your hand in a clockwise direction. After 60 seconds, switch to a counter clockwise direction. This is also a great deltoid and upper arm exercise.
