Upper Body

Summer is RIGHT around the corner!

My favorite part about summer is wearing dresses all the time! Love it!

You know what looks great paired with a dress? Toned arms, shoulders and back! You can’t see nice abs in a dress, but the following workout will address those, as well. 🙂

*I put weights here but BY NO MEANS are these the weights you should use. I upped my weights yesterday for this one from what I had been doing for about 4 weeks. Start out small – use enough weight to fatigue your muscles by the last reps of the set!
