Get Set for Strapless

We all want to look gorgeous when we slip on our favourite sleeveless strapless. And nothing goes better with strapless than a sexy set of arms. Here are five easy moves to tone your arms and shoulders.

1. Bench Press “Targets chest muscles

Grab a set of weights and lie face up on a flat bench. Place your feet flat on the floor about shoulder width apart. Position your upper arms parallel to shoulders, wrists above your elbows. Straighten your arms and lift the weights over your chest. Lower the weights until they nearly touch your chest. Then repeat.

Repeat 8-10 times.
 

2. Seated overhead dumbbell press – Targets shoulders

Sit with your feet flat on the floor, legs shoulder-width apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and raise them directly above your elbows. Ensure your upper arms are in line with your shoulders. Press the dumbbells up, pausing before weights touch. Lower weights slowly and return to start position.  

Repeat 10-12 times.
 

3. Bent-over dumbbell row – Targets back muscles

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent. Lean forward approximately 45 degrees at the waist while keeping your back straight. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and extend your arms in front of you, palms facing each other. Pull the weights towards your sides until they are in line with your navel.  

Repeat 8-10 times.
 

4. Alternating dumbbell curl – Targets biceps

Grab a set of dumbbells and stand with your feet hip-width apart. Place your arms at your sides, palms facing outward. Keeping your arms tight to your side, bend your right elbow and raise the weight to your right shoulder. Pause before lowering weight slowly back to starting position. Then bend your left elbow and raise the weight to your left shoulder. This is one repetition. 

Repeat 12-15 times.
 

5. Lying triceps extension – Targets triceps

Grab a set of weights and lie face up on a flat bench. Place your feet flat on the floor about shoulder width apart. Raise your arms straight above you, palms facing each other. Slowly bend your elbows bringing the weights towards either side of your head. Pause before slowly unbending your elbows and returning your arms to starting position. 

Repeat 12-15 times.
