I LOVE feeling strong. I used to live in a world where I never thought muscles on a woman were sexy and that you must be stick thin to be considered beautiful. I was always scared to do weights for fear of getting bulky, or in my case SUPER VEIN-Y. Yes, I have some serious veins that pop out in heat or with any exercise that any nurse would go crazy over. I have come to accept these veins of mine (for the most part) and have decided that feeling strong is way better than starving myself to just be skinny and super weak.
I have to be completely honest with you though...weight training has never been something that has come easy. Running comes easy for me (most of the time) but when it comes to weights, I have to find some serious motivation to do it. So while I have decided to be completely honest here, I have to tell you that since I have started my training for the half marathon I have totally abandoned my weight training over the past few weeks. It has been so sunny outside and all I have wanted to do is be outside and do what comes easy.
I have decided to challenge myself to choose strength while also choosing endurance for my runs and making sure I at least do strength training twice a week. Soooo I decided to put together my favorite arm workouts for you in hopes that you will join my challenge to workout more than just your legs.
So here you have it: MY SIX FAVORITE ARM WORKOUT!Read More
