If you’re anything like us, you Google “Michelle Obama arms” at least once a month. And though you might think achieving that kind of definition requires a personal trainer or gym membership, we’re here to tell you otherwise: You can sculpt strong and sexy arms at home using a combination of light dumbbells and your own bodyweight.
To help us with this task, we turned to fitness instructor and founder of Xtend Barre, Andrea Rogers (whose Instagram is a thing of motivational beauty). Using her background in dance, Pilates and barre, Rogers created a three-part series full of targeted arm workouts for women that will have your biceps, triceps, pecs and shoulders feeling the burn in no time. Begin with the standing arms series to warm up those shoulders. Next, move into the standing push-ups series to fire up your chest. Then, flow through the floor arms series to ignite your triceps and core. Finally, grab some dumbbells and try your hand at the eight remaining exercises for arms that rival Mrs. O’s (and look damn good in a tank top).
