Are You a Fan of Your Arms? You Can Be!

Updated: Aug 26, 2019

We have been doing a monthly challenge related to either nutrition or fitness, and this month is August Arms! 💪🏻 Some of you may immediately think that working the arms is only about looks, and that is faulty thinking! We need strong arms all day long - to pick up children/grandchildren 👶🏼, to do yard or house work 🧹, to put an item on a shelf, to carry those grocery bags 🛒, etc.

But let's be honest, what usually motivates us to strengthen our arms are those wings that can start to sag or jiggle at the underneath side of our arms! I want you to feel comfortable at the pool and in your summer clothes (which is all year in Texas 😎), so that's why we are doing this challenge!

So how do we get strong, defined arms?

Well, it's repetition and resistance. I am going to help you do that! For the month of August we are going to do 30 repetitions of a different arm exercise everyday! We will take a day of rest on Sundays. You will have to follow me on Instagram or Facebook to get the arm exercise of the day. I also just started a NEW YouTube channel and will be uploading videos there, too!

Honestly, it takes about 8 weeks to really see the results you are looking for. But with our 30 day challenge, you will start to see the difference by the end of the month!

We do these challenges because they are fun and keep us moving. Of course, I need your whole body to be active, not just your arms. So if you need a plan for fitness, email me at pam@healthandsoulfitness and let's get you strong and lean! 💪🏻
