Quick rant on my arms:
I've got mildly toned and muscular arms, but they are disproportionately thick and with a slight layer of fat. And it's not because I've gained body fat- I've dropped a pant size this month and lost 1/2 an inch around my waist, though my thighs and calves have gained more muscle bulk :(
My arms have gotten a hint more evened out as I've been working my upper body more for the past 2 months- I now am the proud owner of semi-defined shoulders and triceps. However, they're still a bit grossly flabby and thick... and I guess it's just genetics because the first places I gain weight (I'm a vase shape) is in my arms and kinda in my love-handles.
So my goal before summer is to get slimmer arms and be able to rock a tank top without gross bulges from the tight armholes.
Here's a set of yoga exercises that I'm going to incorporate into my workout and do them at least twice to three times a week. Word is that yoga is how Jennifer Aniston gets her well-defined (and attainable looking) arms, and I'm pretty optimistic this will work for me as well since she gains weight proportionately but mainly in her upper body just like I do.
Hold each pose for 10 seconds (or about 5 breaths)with no rest in between, and repeat 3 sets
