First off, make sure that when you walk, swing your arms. A natural walking pattern has a reciprocal arm swing (that means when one foot is moving forward, the opposite arm is moving back). Not only is this a great waist slimmer, but an arm toner as well. Make sure that your arms are in a neutral position: the elbow crease and the thumbs are facing forward. The action or work phase of the swing is backward (toning the triceps) and momentum will carry it forward again. Check out the arm swing in this gait pattern.
Here are 3 simple exercises that will get those arms ready for the spaghetti strap dresses, summer weddings and beach time fun!
