How’s it going? The world is slowly healing and we’re easing back to busy mode. So I’m here to drop by quickly to let you know that even with our jam-packed schedules, we can still stay fit and healthy! The best way to build strength, muscle and to get rid of excess body fat is by doing weight training. All it takes is 15 minutes a day to get started. I’ve had a lot of requests asking how to get rid of flabby arms affectionately known as “bat wings.” So I’m dedicating this month to toning up those arms…
A number of factors contribute to flabby arms and atrophy of the muscles – noncommittal to resistance training, sedentary lifestyle, bad nutrition and age to name a few. The good news is that you hold the power and you alone can prevent saggy arms from happening with the right workout routine.
You CAN get back the great muscle tone in your arms in no time – AGE IS NOT A FACTOR!
I’ll guide you throughout and wherever you are – home, backyard, office or outside in the park (my personal favorite). I love working my body to the flow of music while being at one with nature.
Take this ride with me and see don’t you feel the results begin to work immediately.

The workout will feature some of the following steps (w/even more to come)
We will start with a warm-up. Arm Circles – Easy peasy! Just stretch your arms to the side like you are preparing to give someone a big hug. Then you will do controlled and small circular motions with your arms while they are still parallel to the floor. Arm circles may be easy to do but they help a lot in building your triceps, biceps, back and shoulder muscles.
Bicep Curls: We love stacked biceps and it’s easy to get them with a classic bicep curl. To do a bicep curl, stand with your feet shoulder width apart with your arms at your side. Lift your hands up, bending at the elbow. Then bring your arms back to your side to complete the rep. Do 12 reps with a 30 second pause in between for two minutes.
Tricep Dips – Worry not because you won’t need gym equipment to do tricep dips. A dining chair or center table at home will do! Tricep dips would not only tone your arm muscles but doing this exercise will also increase your arm strength.
Tricep Extensions: Tricep extensions are great for working on your bat wings because it targets the muscle group. Start by standing feet shoulder-width apart. Then raise your arms up straight in the air and bend your elbows so your arms go behind your back. To do a rep, raise your arms back up, hold for a brief second, then lower back down. Repeat for 12 reps with a 30 second pause in between for two minutes.
Ohhhh and we are not stopping there. 12-15 min is all it takes!
