I’ve never had good arms. I used to be really embarrassed and self conscious to wear sleeveless tops. Even when the rest of me was lean, my arms never would follow suit. It’s just in my genes for me to have kinda large and flabby ones. I used to look at pictures of myself and just wanna run and hide…
But then again, I had never really targeted my arms in a workout before… Once I turned 30 I realized that this is the only body that I have, and it’s in my control to make it the best it can be. So I started working out in a different way, on a regular basis, in addition to watching what I ate.
If I can’t make it to the gym, I do something at home (or hotel, on vacation, anywhere! -because I try very, very hard not to miss a workout). I have a few different home workouts I like- some are my own creation and some are someone else’s. And I do something different every day. Lately I’ve been very into all things Tracy Anderson.
Today I’m gonna share with you one of her routines- it’s an extremely short arm workout that you can do anywhere, at any time. In fact, I did it this morning while my kids played, (after my run and squats), and I’m on vacation at the moment. It doesn’t require weights or any equipment whatsoever. All you need are 8 minutes and your arms.
And now, for the first time ever in my life, I’m not embarrassed to show you mine.
