tricep extentions

The Fitness Trainer: Tone your arms

Sarah Colbourne, founder of Heart & Soul Fitness, has 15 years’ experience in the fitness industry.

questionWith all this hot weather it’s been impossible to hide my ‘bingo wings’. Is there a shortcut to Ms Obama’s toned biceps?

Ms Obama does have fab triceps muscles and biceps and there are no shortcuts to achieving them apart from hard work, but it does not need to be boring or long:

Why don’t you try some triceps extensions with a weighted bar (pictured), and triceps press-ups are a must. If you do not like the weights room, get into a yoga class and try some downward dogs with a plank hold. As for the bicep curls, get on the pull-up bar for close grip, arm-facing pull-ups, along with using the Olympic rings.
