Do you want toned arms this summer?

Ever since First Lady Michelle Obama revealed her beautiful arms to the public, women across the nation have hit the gym to get their own biceps and triceps into shape.

Some have even gone as far as to go under the knife to get the perfectly toned arms they desire, costing them major dollars to do so.

Raise your fists to your shoulders and while keeping the elbows up. Box your right hand forward clinching the abs in the process.  Bring the hands to the center and switch hands. Box on each side 20 times to feel the burn.

B. Biceps and Arm Circles

What you will need: 5-8 pound dumbbells  

Holding a dumbbell in each hand, stand with your legs slightly wider than hip width with your elbows bent and palms up.

Keeping the spine straight, squat and circle your left hand up and in toward your shoulder in a circular motion as if beckoning someone towards you. Reverse the motion towards the lower hand and repeat for 16 reps.

Don’t forget to do the same on the other side.

C. Tricep Swing
