Tank Top Arm Workout


Tank Top Arm Workout

Break out those sleeveless tops, ladies – spring is upon us! I love the spring. I feel refreshed, motivated, and inspired. Something about the smell in the air after an April shower, the beautiful colors of bloomed flowers and growing trees, and the mild heat paired with a light breeze gets me into my groove. I feel the most beautiful and feminine when the sun is shining and my clothes are flowy and a little more, well, revealing. Whether you’re a halter top kinda gal, ready to rock a sexy strapless ensemble, or in love with a classic tank, having firm arms and sculpted shoulders can make you feel so much more confident.

BUT (please mind the pun), when it comes to the booty, that’s a whole other ballgame! Your lower body, especially that tush, is the one area we can really see quick and motivating results. One of the many reasons my lower body workouts are my favorite. With the right exercises, we can build, enhance, and firm up your rear-end! Dancers are known for their coveted lower Read More

First things, first, I want to give a shout out to the winner of the Brooks Running give-a-way. Congrats to Elizabeth! I’ve sent you an email from lifeinspandex10@gmail.com to gather your size, color preference, and mailing address. I can’t wait to see how cute these pieces look on you!
