5 Minute Arm Toning Workout

5 Minute Arms IG

A few weeks ago I gave you our Amazing Arms in 10 Minutes Workout…but I took it a step further and created a NEW arm workout that is only FIVE minutes!

Now there are absolutely NO excuses about “not having time” — and trust me, this workout is TOUGH, even if it’s short.

Those arms will be shaking after just one round, and you will feel every inch tomorrow!

I recommend doing this workout 3-4 times for the BEST upper body workout, but if you really are short on time, one round will still tone you up!

My Equipment:
Yoga Design Lab Combo Mat (in Geo)
Dumbbells

Outfit:

5 Minute Arm Toning Workout

  • Plank Walks – Start standing with your feet hip distance apart and your arms by your sides. Bend at your hips and reach your hands to the floor keeping your legs as straight as possible. Walk your hands out in front of you until you reach a plank position. Hold the plank for a second and walk your hands back in to stand all the way back up.
  • Push Ups – Start in a plank position with your hands placed directly under your shoulders. Keep your abs pulled in tight, and your belly button in towards your spine. As you lower into your push-up, make sure the elbows stay close in by your sides, and point back. Press back up and repeat. (You can do these on your knees to modify, as well.)
  • Curl & Press – Stand with your feet hip distance apart, holding dumbbells by your side with your palms facing in. Keep your abs tight as you bicep curl the weights up towards your shoulders. Once you curl all the way up, press the weights overhead, keeping your palms facing in. Lower the weights back down to your shoulders, and extend the arms down straight, and repeat.
  • Tricep Dips – Sit on the edge of a chair or bench, with your hands on the edge, and fingers pointing towards you. Press into your hands to lift your hips up. Hover just slightly in front of the chair and bend at the elbows to lower down. Keep your chest lifted, and shoulders out of your ears, as you use the triceps to straighten your arms. Be sure to keep your elbows pointing back and your abs tight.
  • Dynamic Planks – Start in a forearm plank, then press your weight slightly into your LEFT side as you lift your RIGHT hand up and place it where your RIGHT elbow was. Press yourself all the way up into a full plank, straightening the LEFT arm as well. Lower the RIGHT elbow back down first, followed by the LEFT and repeat. Complete 10 repetitions on the RIGHT side, and then switch to lead with the LEFT.
