“Tank Top-worthy Arms”!
Gwen Lawrence is the “Super Ambassador” for GaiamTV.com and is giving helpful tips and tricks to work-out for summer. This week Gwen is discussing firm arms for summer.
We’re well into our commitment to summer excellence. No fitness regimen is complete without toning to get those great tank top-worthy arms. Want arms like Madonna, Kelly Ripa and Eva Mendez? The trick to great arms is high reps and resistance. From arms curls to plank holds and down dogs, work out with a familiar friend on GaiamTV.com and get motivated to sculpt your arms this summer.
Nothing beats a simple push up to tone the biceps, triceps and shoulders.
· Keep your arms shoulder width apart, palms flat
· Control your movements – lower slowly and rise slowly
· Forget counting reps – instead, continue for 1-3 minutes or until you can’t go anymore – then add one more!
· Don’t forget to breathe through each movement
For more of a challenge, try the ball version – or if you are a beginner, simply push against the wall – and watch your beautiful arms emerge!
