Quick Underarm Workout

For the last couple months, I have been sharing my weight loss journey with all of you. Right now I am in the midst of getting  “bikini ready” to go to Cuba in late September.

Here is a quick workout (10-15 mins) to work out your bingo wings a.k.a underarms. Oh yeah, you better bet this burns.

Underarm Circuit

Forward Row with Dumbells

This exercise is great for engaging muscles all over the body including the back and legs. With the forward row, you are fighting gravity. It is essential to keep a straight back when doing this exercise with your legs slightly apart and bent.

Using 5lbs dumbells do this in sets of 15-20.

Forward Fly With Dumbells

Here’s an exercise that I have a love-hate relationship with. I hate doing this exercise but wow do you feel good after.

Like the Foward Row, it is crucial to keep a correct posture when executing this exercise. Keep your back straight with your legs apart and slightly bent. You will feel this exercise all through your arms and back.

Using 5lbs dumbells do in sets of 15-20. Try to match the above set.

Tricep Extensions

I personally like to do this exercise by itself when I’m about to hit my cool down. However, as part of this superset, it’s the grand finale and a burner.

I can do triceps extensions either standing or sitting down. Sitting down will ensure more stability when doing this exercise. I prefer to these on each individual arm.

For best results keep as close to your head as possible.

Do with a 10lbs weight in a set of 15 with both hands or individually with 5lbs dumbells in a set of 30.

The Superset (Complete 3-4 for 10-15 minutes)

Here is the set in all of its glory.

Forward Rows X15-20 times.

Forward Fly X1520 times.

Tricep Extensions X20-30 times each arm or X15 with one dumbell.

REST

REPEAT 2-3 more times.
