Are you ready to bare your biceps? Whether you’re prepping for a wedding or just readying for tank top weather, we’ve got three expert-approved moves to help you get those pipes toned in no time.
Begin by taking a medium weight dumbbell in each hand. Stand with feet hip-width apart and core engaged – and get ready to work those bis, tris and shoulders.
Hold the dumbbells with arms at your sides and palms facing the body, keeping elbows close to your torso. Curl the weights up towards your shoulders (like holding a hammer), squeeze your biceps, then lower. Do 8 to 12 reps.
Overhead tricep extension
With elbows bent next to your ears and arms at a 90-degree angle, squeeze your triceps to straighten your arms overhead. Slowly lower to the start position. Do 8 to 12 reps.
Keeping your shoulders pressed down, raise your dumbbells up to shoulder height. From there, push both dumbbells up to the sky until your elbows are almost straight, without hyperextending your elbows. Lower to the start position. Do 8 to 12 reps.
Repeat this circuit three times.
