What's Up Weddings

Wedding Arms (Like Jennifer and Gwyneth)

May 21, 2012 04:57PM ● By Anonymous

I can’t do a pull-up or a push-up, so traditional exercises are out of the question, and even more importantly, I am vainly terrified of building bulk.

Then, a co-worker sent me a link to a Tracy Anderson workout, which, she says, people “swear by.”

The video is five minutes long—right up my alley—so I went home and tried it. It is so fun.

So fun, in fact, that if my arms didn’t burn for two days afterward, I would never have believed it worked. I did some research online, watched a few interviews with Tracy Anderson , and I learned that the workout is designed specifically to tone and tighten and not to bulk. Perfection.  And according to a video interview I found on YouTube featuring Kelly Ripa, Anderson works with celebrities including Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow. Have you seen their arms!?

This week’s challenge is to groove along with the video every night for the next six days. (I doubt JA and GP take Saturdays off.)

Hopefully, by then I’ll love the feeling so much I’ll keep it going. (And let’s get serious. Five minutes? I should be able to make time for this.)

There are a million (it seems) Tracy Anderson workout videos on YouTube, but this is the one I'm using.

Wish me luck! And if you try it, let me know how it goes!
