March is here — a new season filled with warmer weather is just around the corner, St Patrick’s Day is just waiting to be celebrated, and the time change is almost ready to bring extra light to our days. Let’s take this new beginning to start our healthiest month yet.
Exercise of the Month
How to make March your healthiest month yet…with exercise! Here are some arm exercises to get you started.
Arms are a tough spot for everyone, especially as we grow older. Luckily, a few simple exercises can help tone up the look of that underarm skin and lead to a stronger version of yourself, too:
- Bicep Curls
- Seated Rows
- Tricep Kickbacks
- Scaption Shoulder Raises
Check out this helpful post for added detail for each of the exercises listed above, so you can easily make them a part of your daily movement routine.
