Total Gym Body Part Makeover – Arms

The Total Gym Workout for Toned Arms

Madonna, Michelle Obama, and other high profile people have unveiled beautiful arms from behind closed clothes. Healthy looking, toned arms are sexy – and within our reach!

The great news about training on the Total Gym is that – although we’re focusing on arms in this workout- we are also maintaining a strong core. While we move and train the arms, the core musculature and shoulder girdle supports proper form, stability and alignment as the glideboard slides along the rails. In this sense, Total Gym arm exercises become total body exercises!

Below is a short workout for your arms. This, along with good eating habits, will have you ready for short sleeves in no time!

Seated or Kneeling Biceps Curl: 12 -15 reps
Seated or Kneeling Triceps Kickback: 12 – 15 reps
Shoulder Extension: 12 – 15 reps
Lateral Arm Pull: 12 – 15 reps
Lateral Triceps Extension: 12 – 15 reps
Combo of the above two: 12 – 15 reps
Lateral Kneeling Biceps Curl: 12 – 15 reps
Shoulder Press: 12 – 15 reps
Combine all four of the above exercises: 12 – 15 reps
*Repeat the above four exercises on the other side of the body.
Lying Triceps Extension: 12 – 15 reps
Lying Triceps Extension Unilateral (one arm at time): 12 – 15 reps
Lying Triceps Extension (without moving the glide-board): 15 – 30 seconds
