Time commitment: 30 minutes
Have you ever wished you had arms like Halle Berry or Jennifer Aniston? Well…I make no promises, but this workout will have you looking the best YOU yet. Do this exercise three times per week at the gym or at home; you should notice a difference within a few weeks and I am not referring to the increase in your pain tolerance level. As always, consult a physician before trying any exercises and if you feel like it’s too much, don’t finish the exercises, ladies. I want you alive and well!
What You’ll Need:
- A lot of courage (no kidding)
- 3 sets of weights (5 lbs, 7 lbs, and 10 lbs): WIN IT! Enter to win the 3 sets of weights from this workout!
- 1 fitness step (with 4 risers on each side)
The Exercise (2 circuits): No Breaks in Between Any of These Steps Per Circuit!
FYI: A video illustration of how to perform each exercise can be found below
Step 1: Warm up! Do 15 handwalks
Step 2: Do 15 burpees
Step 3: Do 3 sets of 15 samurai squats—this is where you will use the 3 different sets of weights
Step 4: Do 14 elevated rows—this is where you will use the fitness step and one 5 lb weight
Step 5: Do 15 alternative lunges on each leg
Step 6: Do 14 push-ups with 5 lb weight (7 per arm). You are going to push up, then lift the weight with one hand and place the weight back down. Repeat on each side until you’ve completed 7 weight lifts for each side.
Please drink water after each circuit and catch your breath for 60 seconds. Then repeat. Good luck and stay tuned for part 2 of ANN’S Arm Workout!
