Jillian Michaels’ Routine for Sculpted Arms

The majority of people only think about their abs, buttocks, and thighs when it comes to working out, but you should know that the arms are just as important. In case you would like to make sure that they are properly sculpted as well, consider the exercises of Jillian Michaels.

One Legged Curl

One-Legged Curl

Start with standing on your left leg, holding a dumbbell in each of the hands. Lift the other leg behind you and hinge forward so that your torso and your leg form a straight line. Keep the position while bringing the elbows to your torso and bending them. In fact you will have to curl the weights. Lower the arms and repeat on the other side as well.

Hip Heist

Hip Heist

For this exercise you have to start with a push-up position, with the buttocks slightly raised. Lift the right hand and left foot and rotate the body to the right as you bring the left knee to the right armpit. This exercise focuses on the shoulders, chest, triceps, chest, butt, and abs. By alternatively changing the left and right foot, pivot until you get face up. Place the feet besides each other, the hands besides your hips. The knees are supposed to be bent to 90 degrees. Lift the hips to form a tabletop position. Reverse the movement and return to the starting position. You should do 3 sets, 20 reps each.

Frog Hop

Frog hop

Start on your all fours, with the toes curled under. Lift the knees an inch above the ground and slightly bend the elbows. Press down the palms and hop with the feet, pushing your buttocks into the air. Bend the elbows when you land. Make three sets, each of them consisting of 10 reps.

Staggered Push-Up

Staggered Push-Up

Start in a push-up position with the hands and feet straight, the head, body and feet forming a straight line. Place the left hand to 8 o’clock and the right hand at 2 o’clock. Perform 10 push-ups. Then place the left hand at 10 o’clock and the right hand at 4 o’clock. You should do three sets of this exercise.

Forearm Press

Forearm press

Start by lying on the floor in a plank position. Maintain your balance while being on your forearms and feet. Make sure that the body forms a straight line. By pressing through the arms, extend both of the arms in the same time. In order to make the exercise easier, first straighten the left arm and then the right one. Then start over. Again, you will have to perform three sets of eight reps each.

No matter how difficult these exercises may seem, you can be sure that they work like magic and you will have sculpted arms in no time. All you need is to have a lot of patience and ambition so that you won’t give up after the first routine. It is best to perform the exercises several times per week to ensure seeing the results in the shortest period of time possible.
