Summer’s not over yet! Looking to get great arms to wear with that tang top or tube top? Well look no further!

Katie Couric featured celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson on her show, and Anderson demonstrated some workouts to rid that dreaded arm flab.

Anderson explains the advantages of working out your arms, saying:

“You will see improvements to your arms faster than you will on other, more stubborn problems of your body.” Nice!

The first arm workout Anderson showed, she used a 3lb weight. Anderson says that it’s best to utilize lighter weights, and using the weights she likes to swing her arms in various degrees and angles.

Anderson also says to incorporate arm exercises to your fitness regimen. By doing so, it can increase the number of calories you burn overall.

So the next time you want to get some quick toned arms, pick up a dumb bell. Don’t have dumb bells? A great alternative is water bottles filled with water. Who would have thought?

Now you can have those toned guns in no time!

Surgery To Have Arms Like Michelle Obama

Are Michelle Obama’s arms motivating women to run to the surgeons office?

Yahoo News reports;

While breast implant surgery and Botox injections are still the most common cosmetic procedures in America, the upper arm lift has seen a dramatic increase in populaity, according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

In 2012, 15,457 women spent $61 million on brachioplasty — or liposuction in the upper arms, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Times suggests that the trend is on the rise ever since Michelle Obama’s guns stepped into the spotlight.

In a statement, the ASPS said that women ”are paying closer attention to the arms of female celebrities,” and while that the most popular arms of all belong to the first lady, but that Kelly Ripa, Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore’s limbs aren’t too shabby, either.

The upper arm procedure has seen an explosive increase of 4,378% since 2000. Only 300 women opted for the surgery 12 years ago.

“We are genetically programmed to have different accumulations of fat in different areas, and for some women the arms can be a problem area,” said ASPS Public Education Committee chair Dr. David Reath.

“Can’t the ladies just hit the gym for some extra biceps curls?” you may be asking yourself. They absolutely can, but paying for someone to cut you open and pull your skin in different directions is much easier.
