What girl doesn’t want sexy arms? When we take pictures we position are arms away from our bodies in order for them to not look fat, we also flex or try to cover them up. Covering your arms up in the summer is no fun! In the summer, I want to wear sleeveless shirts, its too hot not too! Something you will love to know is your upper back and shoulders carry less fat than the rest of your body! In the April 2011 issue of Women’s Health, Ramona Brganza shared a sleek sexy arm workout that stars like Jessica Alba do. Braganza’s workout, below stabilizes you shoulder joints, improves your posture, will build a strong back and will hit every major upper-body muscle group.
