Halle Berry served up another sweaty “Fitness Friday” segment on Instagram, and we can’t feel our arms! The October 9 workout included three different arm exercises using her Re-Spin wrist weights. The Bruised actress, 54, and her trainer Peter Lee Thomas demonstrated the moves in a series of workout videos posted to Halle’s Instagram Stories.
“Happy #FitnessFriday y’all! Today’s workout is up in ARMS,” she captioned a post on Instagram, which included a closeup photo (seen here) of her sweaty, toned arms. In the photo, Halle’s wearing her black wrist weights, which wrap around the thumb for added support. “@peterleethomas and I will show you 3 quick exercises to wake up those biceps, triceps and shoulders using @respin’s very own #WristWeights. Check stories now for killer moves that you can tag on to just about any workout and give those arms a little wake up call! Happy Friday,” she wrote. Since Halle shared the clips to her Instagram Story, we are unable to embed the videos in this article.
The complete arm workout targets the biceps, triceps and shoulders. Here’s a breakdown of all three exercises:
- Shoulder Circles: Stand with your feet shoulder length apart and firmly planted on the floor; knees slightly bent; tuck in and squeeze your core. With each arm out in a horizontal line, draw small circles with your arms. Tip: Lock your elbows for the correct form and to avoid hunching over. Rotate the circling of your arms (clockwise and counterclockwise) for your desired rep count.
- Flys: Act if as you have wings with this one. Put your feet together, bend your knees and push your butt behind you. Fly your arms back behind you, squeezing your back and shoulder muscles. Then, bring them in and make your wrists meet at your center. Repeat this move for your desired rep count.
- Touchdown Plyo Squats: This move is more advanced because there are a few moving parts. Start out standing with your feet together and arms down at your sides. Squat and make your fingertips touch the ground; on your way up, lift your wrists and arms in the air for a complete vertical stance. Repeat this combination for your desired rep count.
The only equipment you’ll need for this workout is Halle’s $14.99 wrist weights. She shared links to the product, which includes a 2lb set, on Instagram. “You may not feel these at first, but by the end of your workout you’ll be a true believer! A lot of people ask me about working out with weak wrists, and I love how supported I feel while wearing these!,” Halle says in a quote on the Re-Spin shop website. Re-Spin also offers a “Lift and Stretch Bundle” that includes her wrist weights, Full Body Resistance Loop and Premium Booty Band.
Halle has become a fitness expert with the help of her trainer, Peter (who revealed her exact low-carb Keto breakfast to HollywoodLife) and her Re-Spin brand. Re-Spin is a digital health and wellness community created by Halle. Each Friday, the actress shares different workouts and exercises on social media. Additionally, she usually post a daily dose of positivity on her Instagram feed.
