Default Awesome October Arms

We started out with abs in September and even though we probably let some of our ab work slide we did do SOME so that is better than none at all.

Let's try to do arm work this month, at least 2-3 times a week. The nice thing about arm work is that because the muscles are smaller you are more likely to see results faster than larger muscles. Hopefully if we can keep up with it by the end of the month we'll see some nice toned arms.

I have some hand weights that I can use but if you don't have weights you can always use big cans of food or juice or jugs of water. If anyone needs some examples of arm strength training I could e-mail them some pictures out of a weight training book I have. Just let me know.

Count me in too, but I'm not giving up on my Sensational September Abs yet!! I'm just going to add the arm exercises to the abs that I already do!

I'm in I totally blew it at the ab thing towards the end but I am determined to do the arms. Strength training is part of my exercise goal for the challenge (3x per week) & working the arms & shoulders is a big part of that for me. I'm hoping that by next summer I will be thin enough to feel comfortable wearing sleeveless tops & tank tops, so having fabulous arms to go with it would icing on the cake

Some of us are doing a Kathy Smith thing,

The book is called "Lifting Weights to Lose Weight". By Kathy Smith, of course. It's a 12 week program. It shows you how to do the exercises and what machines to use at the gym (if you go) to use the same muscle groups. There's also a food section, which I have choosen to ignore .
Basically it's streaching 6x a week, weight lifting 2-3x a week and Cardio 30 mins 3x a week. You chose what type of cardio you want to do. For now I'm walking 2 miles, and once I really get into a groove, I plan to do 3 miles, and then back to "Stepping". I love that big ole piece of plastic . But can only do 20 mins, before I'm ready to keel over, so I'm hoping that by the time I get used to doing the 3 miles that I will have lost enough weight and would have gain enough stamina to do at LEAST 30 mins on my stepper.
