Summer Shape Up Series: Barre Inspired Arms Workout

Good morning beautiful!

Every #WorkoutWednesday during the Summer Shape Up Series, I will be posting a NEW workout to keep things fresh. We’re three days in to the first week. How are you feeling?? Today, we are sculpting and shaping toned arms to rock during the warmer months. Pull out your halter, strapless, and tank tops! You’re going to want to show off your guns after this workout.

A combination of small, isometric, and big movements will target even the littlest muscles in your arms! Think sculpted shoulders, lean biceps, and toned triceps. Sounds good, right? Don’t be fooled by the light weight recommendations, this “do anywhere” workout burns!

Hi and welcome to Life in Spandex! I'm Emily, a personal trainer who believes there should be no secrets standing in your way to getting fit. I am sharing my knowledge here on this blog in order to help you reach your goals. Fitness should be fun, eating healthy should taste good, and feeling your absolute best is the ultimate goal. Let's get fit together!
  1. I need to increase my arm strength big time. These are totally doable for me though.

  2. I’m working it Em!!! I sure appreciate your inspiration and reminder that we are always a work in progress. Love you xxxxx

    1. Thanks Mommy!! You’re doing great xoxo love you too!

  3. Perfect time to get those arms in shape!!

  4. I love the triceps dips with leg lift! Hard but worth it!!

  5. I need to start doing tricep dips! I used to do them when I still lived with my parents because they had a solid wood coffee table. Don’t have anything like that anymore.

    1. You can always do them on the ground! They are one of my faves 🙂

  6. So ready to get off and do this! I’ll try to post a pic in the group! Thanks Emily!

    1. Can’t wait to see it Dia!

  7. Warm weather snuck up on me this year time get moving.

    1. I can’t wait for warmer months!!!

  8. Awesome workout routine! I love that you are utilizing weights in this routine, many people are scared of weights, but they are so good not only to tone up but also to continuously burn fat.

    1. Absolutely!!! It makes me sad when women are afraid to use weights because they miss out on so many amazing benefits!
