Simple Toned Arms at Home Workout

Hey everyone! I have finally decided to just go ahead and make a workout page! I have been dying to post my workouts forever since I create them all myself and they work awesome for me! I don’t go to a gym because I believe you can get into just as good shape at home with just a few simple pieces of equipment. My workouts are also not too long but quite intense, because let’s face it, who really wants to spend hours in the gym on a saturday?? So without further ado, here is my first workout post!

Simple Toned Arms Workout:
Muscles worked: Arms/biceps/triceps
Equipment Needed: Dumbells
Repeat each set x2 for beginner, x3 for advanced

10 burpees (jump at the top of each one)
10 shoulder flys
10 bicep curls
10 tricep extensions
10 preacher curls
10 shoulder press, each arm(alternating arms)
10 incline push-ups
10 tricep-dips

*Tip* Remember to choose a weight that is right for your goals (ex. low rep, heavy weight=muscle mass/size, high rep, light weight=light toning, mid range(8-12 reps)=lean muscle mass)

Next up will be legs!
