[Workout] Get Tank-Top Arms!


As ladies, our upper bodies are generally not naturally strong and it takes a lot of hard work to build up upper body strength. Here is a workout that left my arms shaky for days, and I threw in some cardio and core sequences to make it intense and effective.

What You’ll Need

A pair of dumbbells and an exercise mat.

How to Do it

Perform all arm exercises back to back as if they were one movement. Then once you have completed 10 reps of this move on to 20 reps of the ab/cardio finisher.
