Tank-top season scares us.
Winter whiteness and chicken wings just don't go with that cute little sundress. But you don't always have time to squeeze in a yoga class after a 10-hour work day, now do you?
My girlfriend, Stefanie, requested easy arm workouts that are accessible from home. The truth is, with ten minutes of arm sculpting a day, your arms will become lean, strong and flab-free. These are four workouts I do almost every day to prevent the dreaded jiggle. My trainer Chris was kind enough to take these pictures while keeping a close eye on my form.

Take 3 or 5-pound weights (if weights aren't available, canned food works well), come down by the sides and then press up into an "O" shape. Do three sets of 25 reps.
Bring the palms of the hands on an elevated surface (a chair works). Come down to 90 degrees with the elbows and press back up. Try to hold it for two seconds when down. Do three sets of 20 reps.
Resistance Band Pulls
Wrap a resistance band around a pole. Bring the arms to 90 degrees and then pull straight. Do three sets of 20 reps.
Straight Arm Pull Backs
Place the resistance band around the feet. Hinge from the waist and bend in the knees. Pull straight back, pinching through the scapula. Make sure arms are straight when pulling back. Do three sets of 20 reps.
Take ten minutes out of your day, and change the shape of your arms. No excuses!
