A few years ago, Michelle Obama’s arms captured a lot of attention.
Many women wanted her beautiful, strong lean look for their own bodies. Michelle Obama arms became #goals.
If you want to get toned, defined arms you are going to have to lift weights.
No, it won’t make you “bulky.” If you lift weights at least twice a week (be sure to go heavy enough that it is challenging) and practice diet diligence so that body fat doesn’t cover up your nice lean muscle, you, too can have shapely arms like Mrs. Obama.S
Here’s a two day upper body workout plan you can take to the gym to start sculpting those arms. Click the exercise for a link to the video showing how it should be done. (All reps are per side.)
Lat pulldown 3 x 8
Incline Bicep Curl 3 x 10
Close-grip pulldown 3 x 10
Reverse bicep curl 3 x 12
One-arm bent-over row 3 x 10
One-arm cable curl 3 x 10
Arnold press 3 x 8
Bar front raise 3 x 10
Bench press 3 x 8
Tricep push-ups 3 x 10
Ball pullover 3 x 12
One-arm triceps pushdown 3 x 12
One-arm rear fly 3 x 12
Leaning side raise 3 x 10
You can do this workout for up to 12 weeks for maximum effectiveness. Be sure to use weight that is challenging enough that you can barely maintain good form on the last couple reps of EACH SET. Once a weight is no longer challenging, move up to the next weight.
Go get it girl, and don’t forget to flex. 🙂
