3 easy moves for lean, toned arms

Summer is right around the corner, and along with the warmer weather also comes sexy sleeveless shirts and shoulder baring dresses, so there’s no better time to get beautifully toned and defined arms. Try this simple circuit for an awesome arm workout, but don’t worry if you’ve never lifted a dumbbell in your life. These exercises were designed with all skill levels in mind — whether it’s your first time working out or you’re at the gym on a daily basis.

My top three exercises for strong, toned arms 

Do as many reps as you can in 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, repeat four times per exercise.

1. Raised Hands Push Up

Start with your hands on a raised stable surface, such as a bench at waist height. Focus on leading with your chest not your head or stomach.

2. Plank Up Downs

Start in high plank position, then slowly lower yourself one arm at a time down to your forearms. Then return to the starting position. This is a great exercise to increase abdominal and shoulder strength.

3. Plank Side Shuffles

Start in the plank position. Shuffle your feet and hands three paces to the left, return to middle, then shuffle three paces to the right. Focus on keeping the hips level and your shoulders over your wrists.
