The Little Black Dress Arm Circuit! ;)
Hi Ladies! If you want to tighten and tone up your arms and get rid of what some people call "bat wings" like every other muscle you'll need to train those muscles hard and to failure! Now, if you are new to training you may be saying "NO WAY! I'll bulk up!" and I'm here to tell you "No, you won't! Just trust me on this" :) So just let that thought go! Building muscle actually takes quite a long time to do, the women you see in muscle magazines have trained really hard for years to achieve that look so don't worry about it until you get there. In the meantime, train those arms hard and with intensity! Also, the whole principle of weight training involves the tearing down of muscle fibers so the body is forced to adapt by regenerating newer and Denser muscle tissue to accommodate the work....Denser muscle tissue takes up WAY less space, which is why women who weight train look so tight and toned. The main muscle you'll want to target is the Triceps muscle as it takes up 2/3's of the arm, next is shoulders, all muscles, and third is biceps.
