Tracy's secret to trim, toned arms? Hint: It's part strength, part cardio.
Tone your arms and shoulders
When it comes to achieving an amazing upper half, it's not enough to do just bicep and tricep moves. You need to pair a range of arm movements with bouts of cardio, which target the underlying flab. When you do, you get three big benefits: a more effective and higher calorie burn, allover arm and shoulder toning and, surprisingly, some upper ab action (read: a tighter tummy). Now throw those arms in the air and jump around a little—greater endurance and serious definition await.
Combine strength and cardio
These exercises combine jumping, which amps up heart rate, with arm movements—punching or lifting—to trim and firm your biceps, triceps, shoulders and even back and waist. Perform this circuit six days a week, adding at least 30 minutes of cardio (more is better). Do series twice, starting moves 2 to 4 on your right side the first round, and on left the second round.
