Arms of Envy in Less than 20 Minutes a Day

Women carry most of their weight around the midsection and hips so toning up the arms is fairly simple. Do these exercises 3-4 times a week, 10 repetitions of each exercise and you'll have arms of envy in no time.

  • 1 Preacher Curls
    • You'll need two dumbbells between 3-9 pounds each.
    • If you are just beginning to lift, start with a lighter weight and work your way up to the 9 pounds.
    • Stand straight with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms hanging at each side, palms facing forward with a dumbbell in each hand.
    • Bend your arms at the elbows and lift the weights to chest level. Slowly return them to your sides.
    2 Side Curls
    • Remain in the preacher curl position, but this time, turn your palms toward your body.
    • Keep your arms straight and lift the dumbbells to shoulder level.
    • Slowly return them to your side.
    3 Tricep Curl
    • Remain standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent.
    • Keep your head facing forward.
    • Bring your arms straight over your head with your palms facing the ceiling.
    • Keeping your upper arm straight, slowly bend your elbows so your hands fall behind your head.
    • Return them to the starting position.
    4 Weight Boxing
    • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, back straight, shoulders back.
    • Hold a dumbbell in each hand. Keep your elbows tucked into your body and hold the dumbbells at shoulder level.
    • Punch your left hand across your body so your entire arm is at the shoulder level.
    • Return it to its tucked position.
    • Punch your right arm across your body so the arm is at shoulder level, then return it to the tucked position.
    5 Push-Ups
    • Get down on your hands and knees. Shift your weight forward so your arms are supporting your body.
    • Keep your back straight and perpendicular with the ground. Hands should be on the ground under your shoulders.
    • Bend your elbows and lower your body to within a few inches of the ground, then push back up into the start position.
