arm + shoulder workout

If you want toned arms and shoulders then this is your workout! In addition, the workout uses your own body weight and targets your core to tone the most stubborn areas.

Plank Ups

Lay on your stomach and prop yourself up on your elbows. Engaging your core and being careful not to sway too much, raise up on one hand and then the other. Lower yourself back down to your elbows one arm at a time.


Stand straight up with feet shoulder width apart. Bending at the hips and keeping your legs straight, walk your hands in front of you until your in a push up position. Walk your hand back toward your feet and return to starting position.

Lateral Plank Walks

Start in a push up position. Walk your left hand and foot out to your side followed by your right hand and foot. Take 3 to 4 'steps' to your left and then go back to your right. Be careful not to let your body sway from side to side with each step. Keep your core tight and engaged.

Modified Diamond Push Up

Lay on your stomach and bring your hands together so that they form a diamond under your chest. Push up until your arms are straight and your body forms a straight line from head to knees. If you can do regular push ups, definitely go for it!
