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!
