Summertime is almost here, can you believe it?! If you need to jump start that bikini body, there is a really quick arm routine you can fit in that just takes two minutes. So no excuses that you don’t have time to work out!
This arm routine is really easy. I use 3 pound weights and do: 30 of each exercise then repeat, for a total of two minutes. The top photo is an overhead press to target your shoulders and also will workout your abs. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, hold the weights at your shoulders with your arms bent and palms facing forward. Press both weights up until the weights are overhead and your arms are straight. Lower the weights back to the starting position and repeat as many times until 30 seconds is up.
Now for the second arm workout, a tricep kickback that will help with stubborn arms *my trouble area*. You’ll do this set of exercises again for 30 seconds, as many as you can. Start with a weight in each hand and your palms facing your body. Keep your back straight with a slight bend in the knees and bend forward at the waist. Your forearms should be pointed towards the floor with a 90-degree angle between your forearm and upper arm to start. Then use your triceps to lift the weights until the arm is fully extended then slowly lower the dumbbells back down to the starting position.
So you’ve got the arm workout down but you want to look cute in gym clothes while doing it! My gear is from CALIA by Carrie Underwood, her fitness line that I am obsessed with. They are perfect for the gym but still look cute enough to run errands in all day and they double as comfortable travel clothes. I’m wearing the printed capri pants, jacket, tank and double strap bra in pale pink all sold exclusively at DICK’S Sporting Goods and available online at caliastudio.com.
