#Armday is my favorite

One of the places on my body that I am super self-conscious about is my arms.  I cannot remember the last time I wore a sleeveless shirt in public.  Here is why, I have a lot of fat on my arms and I have major jiggle (I'm so nice I say "hi" twice kind of jiggle).  See exhibits A & B below.

So in order to combat this issue I have come up with an weight routine for my arms and shoulders that will hopefully help. I do 2 sets of 15 reps for each exercise (I hope I said that right, still working on my fitness lingo).

Bicep curls - 10lb
Hammer curls - 10lb
Tricep kickbacks - 5lb (I think I am going to up this next time to 10lb)
One-arm tricep extension - 5lb
Shoulder press - 5lb
Deep swimmers press - 5lb
Lateral raise - 5lb
Upright row - 10lb
Rear deltoid row - 10lb
Shoulder shrugs - 10lb

What is your favorite muscle group to work on?

Fitness Friday


  1. I think my favorite is my legs cause they are strong and can lift lots... but.... the down side is I bulk up in muscle WAY fast and then my legs look too large.... I remember telling a trainer I had once about that and she soon saw what I was talking about. Many blessings on your body my friend..... may your body become everything that you desire for it to be and may your heart be full of Jesus. Nothing like being a total hottie on the outside AND on the inside. ;-)
