TGIF!  Not really, just means a long weekend of work to me, but I hope the rest of you are getting out and enjoying the remaining summer weather.  I thought I’d send you off on your weekend armed (ha get it) with a quick tricep workout.  Our worst nightmare, the jiggly rear arm!  Embrace your fears, we can definitely avoid this by keeping our tri’s tight and toned.

We all know you can’t target one area, so please don’t do this all week :)  Toned tri’s need to be complimented with toned biceps.  Take these mini workouts and pair them with others to get a complete body workout throughout the week.

Here’s to waving hello to everyone with confidence and not princess style!
