7. Side Arm Raises with Dumbbell

Side Arm Raises with Dumbbell

This one KILLS. I don’t think we girls use these muscles very often, so expect to be very, very sore with this one. Hold one light-weight dumbbell in each hand, maybe 8 pounds. Raise your harms at your side, shoulder level (like you’re making a cross), then bring them back down to your sides

. Try for three sets of 12, with 30 seconds between sets. See? Not easy!

These exercises will all tone your arms, and you’ll love the way they look! You’ll also love being able to open the pickle or jam jar without anyone’s help. Do you already have any of these exercises in your routine? How do you like them? Please let me know!
