As a personal trainer, I’ve heard all of the excuses for not working out. I’m going, to be honest with you, I just don’t buy it. You don’t need to spend a ton of time at the gym. You can get a great workout in at home! Anyone can find 10 minutes to spare in their day! Just get up and move, whether it’s before work, during your lunch break or even at night while you’re watching TV! This 10-Minute Kettlebell Arm Workout is a perfect example. It’s quick, effective and has a number of benefits to offer you.
Performing a few simple muscle toning exercises each day will boost your metabolism, causing you to burn extra calories throughout the day. The more muscle that you have, the more calories you’ll burn. Many ladies are hesitant to lift weights because they feel that they might get bulky. I’ll tell you the same thing that I tell all of my clients… You will not and cannot get bulky. The female body just doesn’t naturally produce enough testosterone for that to happen. You will, however, get toned and fit! Aside from this, lifting weights will also help you sleep better and make healthier choices throughout the day.
This simple, 10-minute kettlebell arm workout can be performed at home or at the gym. One of my clients used to even keep a pair of dumbbells and a kettlebell in her trunk so that she could go do a quick workout on her lunch break! Too often we overcomplicate exercise. We’re keeping it sweet and simple with this kettlebell routine! The upper body exercises involved in this workout will give you defined, gorgeous arms! Let’s get started!
