Arm Workout: Cool-Down & Tone-Up

Arm WorkoutWith this summer’s heat wave in full sizzle, it’s time to jump in the water and cool off as best you can. And it’s also the time for your arms to look fabulous in sleeveless or short sleeved blouses. Here is an Arm Workout you can do at the beach, the lake or the pool.

Arm Workout Exercises: Stand in water shoulder height with your feet at least hip width apart and knees slightly bent, breathing normally. For all exercises keep water weights or air filled water bottles submerged. If you are just getting started you can use your hands as paddles for less resistance than aqua weights or plastic bottles.
Weights with water for less resistance. Less water for more resistance.

Rows:Arms and Back

Keep weights just below the surface and using the broad side for resistance, push one water weight straight out in front of you while pulling the other straight back behind you. Then switch directions keeping the weights in the water the whole time.

Shoulders/arms/triceps

Extend arms in front of chest, palms down. Move arms straight down and extend in back of your hips.

Biceps: Upper arms/forearms

Arms are at sides palms up. As you hold the weights. Slowly pull arms as you bend elbows and bring weights up to your shoulders. Then lower them back down.

Do this arm workout every other day. You need at least 24-48 hours between so your muscles have a chance to adapt and grow.  It should take you only about 10-15 minutes so this arm workout is easy to fit into any busy schedule.

And of course it will help you look and feel Fabulous Forever!
