I thought I should look for some arm targeted workouts and make a point to work specifically on the problem spot – rather that merely on “getting a workout” – two to three times per week. I’ll start with 2x a week and go for four to see if there’s any discernible difference. But first, I started with an overall cardio from my go-to source.
I haven’t done any workouts chiefly with an aesthetic motivation in mind in a long time. I do a lot of lower body work, but that’s mainly because they work the largest muscles and get the heart rate up. This is different. I’ll try targeting arms a bit.
The workout I did today is decent, but I need to write one of my own that’s heavier on the triceps and delts, I think. Not sure.
If all this fails I can:
- Stop wearing sleeveless tops or, better yet
- Refuse to let anyone photograph me wearing sleeveless tops.
- (15/50) 3 rounds. 1st round with video.
- High Knees
- Lunge Kick (right)
- Lunge Kick (left)
- Decline Mountain Climber
- 1 Leg Hip Thrust (right)
- 1 Leg Hip Thrust (left)
- Speed Skater
- Jump Squat
- Plank Jack
- Sit to Stand (right), 10lbs 1st round, next rounds no weight
- Sit to Stand (left)
- Hip Lift/Leg Lift
- Temple Tap Abs
- Frogger jumping straight in rounds 1 & 3, wide in round 2
- Did it with the video in order to practice the movements.
8 exercises, 1min rounds, 2x through with a break in between

- Ventral, lateral raise, 8lbs
- External shoulder rotations – 5lbs
- Rhomboid squeezes – 5lbs

- Plyo push-ups, on floor They demo these against a wall! Even if I have fat arms, I’m strong enough to do plyo on the floor, but I wonder if a simple wide arms push-up set wouldn’t be better here.
