Since May in National Fitness Month, what better time to roll out a new arm workout than right now?? Here is my new, 12-minute Daily Dozen Arm Workout! Give it a try... I promise you will have sexy, leaner arms come summer if you do this routine two or three times a week! And you don't need any weights at all to do this - just a little motivation and 12 minutes to spare!!I get asked a lot about arm jiggle, and back fat (or bra overhang), and how to firm up the upper body... the good news is the arms and upper body are some of the easiest areas to tackle! It just takes a little dedication and you will see and feel results. But it's not just about looks - as we get older, keeping our muscles strong and lean will go far in how we feel overall. Strong muscles allow us to move freely, pick up heavy items without worry of dropping them, and even give us more energy and a boost to our metabolism. And when you are strong, you feel strong - inside and out!! This Daily Dozen Arm Workout targets the triceps, biceps, shoulders and more, for firm, sculpted arms - no weights required!
