These 3 Moves Will Give You Toned Arms in No Time

All you need is a pair of 3-8 lb. dumbbells.

1. Shoulder Shaper

WORKS: shoulders and abs. Stand with feet hip-width apart, a weight in each hand in front of thighs (left). Lift right arm straight out to side, left arm straight ahead, both to shoulder height (right). Lower arms to first position for one rep. Repeat on other side and continue for 12 reps.

MAKE IT EASIER: Use lighter weights.

MAKE IT HARDER: Do arm lifts while balanced on one leg to engage abs.

WORKS: shoulders, back and abs. Kneel on right knee, left foot in front, left knee bent almost 90 degrees. Hold weights near calves, palms inward. Hinge forward, chest toward thigh (left). Open arms up and out to a T (right). Slowly return to A for one rep; do six. Switch legs and do six more.

MAKE IT EASIER: Skip the weights.
