Exercise Your Right to Bare Arms
Looking at Hollywood's red carpet, you can tell the stars are all about developing and toning their upper arms. Even First Lady Michelle Obama proudly shows her fantastic biceps regularly. Buff arms can be yours too! What you need is a move that will make what I call the "belly" of the biceps really pop! Ready? Get in the right mind-set — it's time to concentrate!
- Hold a dumbbell in your right hand and sit on the edge of a bench or a chair with your feet a few inches wider than your hips.
- Lean forward from your hips, and place your right elbow against the inside of your right thigh, just behind your knee. The weight should hang down near the inside of your ankle.
- Place your left palm on top of your left thigh. Exhale and bend your right arm, curling the dumbbell three-quarters of the way up toward your shoulder.
- Hold for a beat, then inhale slowly, lowering the weight, and repeat. Do a complete set (10 to 15 reps) on one arm, then switch to the other.
