Arms Workout


Spring's not quite here yet, but it's never too early to get your arms ready for your favorite warm weather tops and beach season. Today’s workout focuses on sculpting your arms. Your biceps, triceps, and chest will feel the burn after this one. For this circuit, start with a heavier set of free weights. If you're completely gassed after the first set, feel free to swap out for a lighter set. Remember this: if it's burning, it's working!


Warm-up: 60 seconds of jumping jacks, 15 seconds rest. Repeat twice.



10 push-ups

20 standing shoulder presses

10 tricep kickbacks (each arm)

5 lateral raises

15 one-arm rows (each arm)

5 front raises

10 reverse flies

10 upright rows

10 hammer curls

10 dumbbell pullovers


Repeat circuit twice.


Cool-down: Stretch. If you're under 40, hold stretches for 30 seconds. If you're over 40, do 60 seconds. Once you hit your 40s, your muscles become less pliable, so they must be stretched longer.
