If you want toned arms for summer, join the club! We got Carrie Underwood’s trainer to show us some arm exercises so you can feel sexy in a tank top ASAP!
Memorial Day is less than a month away, people! This is not a drill! We are so in awe of Carrie Underwood‘s toned legs and arms, and now celebrity trainer (and USANA Fitness Ambassador) Erin Oprea, who works with Carrie and Kelsea Ballerini, is sharing 4 easy workouts to do inside or outside to get ready for summer!
“We’re all about to rock those tank tops and sundresses, so let’s get you feeling your absolute best. This is hard for me — to not put in some wonderful leg exercises — so pay attention! Let’s get that upper body burnin’!”
“PUSH-UP HOLDS: Take it to your knees or stay on your toes, but pay attention to your own level! Go down low in a push-up and hold that position for 3 seconds. Now push back up. Keep repeating for 10 to 20 push-ups!
UP DOWN PLANKS: Start in hand plank formation. Now lower yourself onto your elbows, keeping your body in great plank form throughout. Walk yourself back up to hand plank and repeat this for 15 times on each arm.
CHIN UPS: This is a great exercise that builds beautiful upper bodies, but can be quite hard for beginners. Don’t be worried, it’s totally worth it. Grab a partner to assist you up or strap a band around the bar and use that as your buddy. Try and get 5 to 10 controlled chin-ups. Do 3 sets.
FLOOR DIPS: Sit on your bottom with your hands on the ground at your sides with your fingers facing your feet. Bring your hips off the ground into your starting position. Now bend at your elbows shooting them straight back. Push back up to the start and keep pulsing this way, burning the backs of your arms, for 30 fun dips.”
We’re feeling the burn already!
