Summer Ready Arms
15 Minute Workout

Yes, hello summer. Hello Bright Hot Sun. And HELLO summer wardrobes! We missed you! Oh the joy of long, short, flowy, straight, bright, and fun dresses, tank tops, halter necks, and those delectable new strapless tops! Good to have you back. Oh, but it seems like my arms weren’t expecting you just yet…

Did summer surprise you? Are you not ready for those sleeveless tops? Are your biceps not as toned as you wanted them to be? Not to worry! PrettySecrets is here! Try this 15 minute workout for sexy toned summer-ready arms in no time!

Note: Follow this 2-4 times a week. 1 set = 12-15 reps. Do 3 sets of each exercise in a circuit. That is, complete 1 set per exercise, then a 2nd set, etc. And remember to have fun!


Plant your feet hip-width distance apart, bend and plant your hands on the floor. Keeping legs straight (no bending those knees) slowly walk forward on your hands till you’re in the plank position (i.e. arms under your shoulders). And then walk back to the starting position. That is 1 rep.

Perpendicular Arm Raises

Grab a pair of dumbbells (to start 1-2 kgs each), one in each hand. Stand with feet hip-width distance apart and arms by your sides. Now raise both arms simultaneously (raise to shoulder height with palms facing down) left arm to your side and right arm in front of you. It should look like you’re making a right angle with your arms. Now repeat with opposite arms. That is 1 rep.


Stand with feet hip-width distance apart, dumbbells in each hand, palms facing outward. Raise dumbbells in a bicep-curl to your shoulders. Then rotate your hands so palms are facing out again and extend your arms to the ceiling. Pause for a 2 seconds and then reverse moves to starting position. That is 1 rep.

Row with Triceps Kickback

Hold a dumbbell in your right hand and put your left knee on a bench (preferably at knee height). Your upper-body should be making a 90 degree angle with your lower-body. Keeping your back straight and core tight, pull in the dumbbell so your elbow is by your side and raise the weight behind you till your arms is completely straight. Reverse the moves to the starting position to complete 1 rep.

  Go easy on yourself in the first week of this workout. But after that make sure to challenge yourself by lifting heavier weights, doing more reps per set and taking fewer breaks. The more you challenge yourself, the more you burn! And you’ll have the sexiest summer ready arms before you know it. Make sure to wear supportive and breathable activewear when you sweat it out. It is especially worth it to invest in high quality supportive, well-fitting, sports bras Workout courtesy: Women’s Health
