Toning And Firming Your Arms

Guest: The Gold Coast Cure / Fitter, Firmer, Faster

Today we’re gonna focus on toning and firming your arms---especially this back of the arm area, the notoriously difficult to tighten triceps. Now, I know and I totally understand most women don’t want bulging biceps and body builder arms---and for this reason a large percentage of women steer clear of the weights and hit the cardio equipment instead. ----But, here’s the deal, if you’re over about age 30---which I am! ---it is almost completely impossible to have toned arms unless you do some sort of resistance training. ---

Now the resistance training I’m encouraging doesn’t have to be super hard-core with way heavy weights, but it does have to be challenging enough so that you feel the burn and so you are actually fatiguing your muscles.---For maximum results, you also want to make sure you’re working your muscles in a variety of ways using a variety of exercise training techniques. ----In addition, you also want to consider a training technique called “DROP-SETS” where you do 1 exercise—such as overhead presses---with a moderately heavy weight for 10-12 reps and then you “drop” down to a lighter weight and repeat the same exercise for 20-30 reps without resting between sets.

Here are a few examples of some exercises you can do at home:

1. Incorporating SUPER-SLOW training---try doing single arm lat rows with tricep extension (put other hand on stability ball)
2. For upper body endurance try HIGHER REP TRAINING doing boxing with light weights AND medicine ball throws
3. For sheer strength---nothing beats the push-up! Try a variety of tempos to increase intensity
4. Drop Set---do overhead press with 7 pounds and then drop down to 5 pounds

Now of course you can’t just do arm exercises and get fabulous arms if you also aren’t following a healthful diet. For more information on healthy “whole foods” eating tips please visit my website at www.goldcoastcure.com or check out my Gold Coast Cure or Fitter, Firmer, Faster books.---

That’s all we have time for today, but please tune in next time for time saving glute tightening tips!
