At home workouts to tone up your arms
WORKOUT #1: Disc Fix
Expert: Mindy Mylrea, creator of the Gliding Disc program and star of the DVD All About Arms
Secret weapon: Gliding Discs. These slick circles slide on carpet, wood, and linoleum. Add them to traditional moves like lunges and your muscles will work extra hard to control your motion. (discs plus instructional DVDs, $23; glidingdiscs.com)
The plan: You can easily slide a supershort toning routine into your day using Gliding Disc moves. Do this 6-minute routine 3 or 4 times a week, starting with 10 reps of each exercise and building up to 3 sets of each. To burn more fat every day and get extra energy, start each morning with a 5-minute cardio microburst. After a quick warm-up, do jump squats, V-sits, jumping lunges, or mountain climbers.
1. Wide-arm push-up
With discs under palms, slide hands out to sides as you bend elbows and lower. Slide them back in as you push up.
2. Sliding dip
With discs under feet, bend elbows back to lower hips while you extend one or both legs. Straighten arms and slide leg(s) back in.
