Toned Arms + Abs Workout

Grab a set of dumbbells and crush 2 – 3 rounds of the circuit below. Let’s do this!

Front to Lateral Raise

Sculpts your shoulders and arms!

Begin standing with feet hip-width apart, both hands holding dumbbells and arms down in front of you with palms facing you. Keeping your arms straight, lift the dumbbells in front of you to shoulder height for a front raise, then lower back down. Then, with palms facing down, lift the dumbbells up and out to the sides to shoulder height for a lateral raise. Lower them back down.

Do 15 reps.

Reach + Row + Press

Targets your arms, shoulders, and abs!

Begin standing with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, both hands holding dumbbells with elbows bent and weights at your shoulders. Reach down with your right arm toward your right foot, extending your arm. Keep a slight bend in the knees. Row your right elbow back as you stand back up. Then, twist to your right side as you press both weights overhead, palms facing away from you. Make sure arms are slightly forward so you can see your biceps, and maintain a neutral spine.

Do 15 reps, then switch sides.

Sumo Squat + Cross Punches

Works your legs, shoulders, and obliques!

Begin with feet wider than hip-width apart, toes turned slightly outward and both hands holding dumbbells. Elbows should be bent at 90 degrees, with dumbbells at your ribs. Lower down into a sumo squat position, chest tall and core engaged. Extend your right arm across your body, turning your palm to face the ground for a punch. Then bring it back to your side. Repeat with the left arm and continue alternating, while holding your sumo squat.

Do 10 reps on each side.

Tummy Toners + Tricep Push-Up

Tones your abs, arms, and legs!

Begin in a plank position, arms extended and shoulders directly over your wrists. You should form a straight line from shoulders to heels. Drive your right knee to the outside of your right elbow. Then step back to plank. Drive your left knee to the outside of your left elbow. Then step back to plank. Next, drop your knees to a modified plank position, keeping a slight forward tilt of the pelvis. Lower your chest to the ground, squeezing your elbows back for a tricep push-up. Press back up. Then, step your right foot forward, and stand up. Turn to face the other side of the mat and repeat the same move facing the other direction. Continue alternating sides.

Do 10 reps total.

High-Low Plank

Sculpts your abs and shoulders!

Begin in a plank position, arms extended and shoulders directly over your wrists. You should form a straight line from shoulders to heels. Lower down onto your right forearm, then your left. Then, press back up with your right hand, then your left to return to an extended arm plank position. Continue alternating which arm you start with through the forearm and extended arm planks.

Do 15 reps total.

 

Side Plank Crunch

Works your obliques, hip flexors, and shoulders!

Begin in a modified side plank position on your right side, with your right arm extended, shoulder over your wrist. Your right shin should be on the ground, with knee bent so your foot is behind you and hips are stacked. Extend your left leg straight out, and left arm overhead. Pull your left knee and left elbow in toward your waistline. Then extend back out.

Do 15 reps, then switch sides.
