  • Awesome Arm Workout

    Get ready to get your arms in awesome shape! Trainer Holly Rilinger gives you an incredible arm workout to bring you one step closer to a sleek and sexy upper body. Holly has created a workout comprised of three challenging rounds that works all muscles in your upper body - big and small! Each move is done for 45 seconds with 15 seconds of active recovery between exercises. You will be performing each of the first two exercises two times before moving on to the next round. For this Kickstart workout you will need a medium set of dumbbells. The first move is a bent over dumbbell row, which will work your back. Bend at your waist and keep your back nice and flat. Make sure to exhale as you pull your weights up. The second move is push ups. Be sure to tap your chest to the ground each time you hit the floor. Overhead shoulder press is your third move. Hold the dumbbells over your shoulders and push them up in a straight line, as though you are throwing them up to the ceiling. If this move becomes too strenuous, a modification is to do one arm at a time. However, for maximum results, continue to do this explosive movement as Holly demonstrates. Renegade Row is up next, which puts you in a plank position, holding on to your dumbbells. While in this position, lift one dumbbell at a time. This is a great move to work your back and core muscles. The final round begins with standing curls, which focuses on your biceps. Holly ends with push ups into mountain climbers, which is a great move to strengthen your triceps. Now that you know all these moves, you are on your way to chiseling strong and toned arms. This is one of the best arm workouts to strengthen your entire upper body.
