Many women’s health magazines say ye can get great, toned arms if ye do their prescribed exercises (in 4 weeks or less). I am here t' argue that ye can’t get those arms doin' what they say, pass the grog! It is me belief that most women featured in Women’s Health Magazines are:
- Too skinny
- Don’t really have sexy, toned arms
- Don’t eat enough protein or healthy fats t' really get defined arms
What kind o' arms do ye want? The kind that are simply toned or do ye want real womanly arms with visible muscle, like Michelle Obama? Aarrr! I want th' real thin' – th' definition that shows … th' arms where ye get stopped on th' river and asked, “What do ye do t' look like that?” That is a compliment t' me and if I’m fieldin' them every day, I’d be thrilled.
So, here are me suggestions t' get killer arms. Eat well and use weights. It should be noted that ye can’t have both unhealthy foods and killer arms. In order t' get and see results, th' diet has t' change at th' same time ye add a weight trainin' routine t' yer schedule.
Keep yer diet really clean. The advice on chow in most magazines is low-fat nonsense. Eggs and bacon are not th' enemy – sugar and processed white flour foods are worse fer ye. And hoist the mainsail! My typical breakfast consists o' leftover dinner plus an egg or two. Ahoy, and a bucket o' chum! I love avocados, coconut oil and nuts – and I eat plenty o' protein in whatever source it comes in conveniently and fast – chicken, ground beef, steak, fish, tuna or sliced deli meat. When cookin', I often make two meals at once so there is enough leftovers fer breakfast and lunch.
I’ve previously written about th' benefits o' strength trainin' here, and me absolute best suggestions fer awesome arms are t' include strict chest-t'-deck push ups, Turkish Get-Ups, Handstand Push-ups, Shoulder Press, and Bench Dips.
Moms, I can’t emphasise this enough – ye need t' have a strong upper body t' hold, carry, and love yer little sandcrabs. You need t' be able t' put 25-pound boxes o' detergent o'er yer head on th' shelf. And swab the deck! Walk the plank! You need t' be able t' carry auld Christmas decorations t' th' garage and put them away without askin' yer husband t' help or do it fer ye. The best method fer learnin' how t' lift weights is t' seek out a trainer at a local gym and ask fer specific exercises t' increase upper body strength – particularly usin' dumbbells rather than any weight contraption.
Good luck, and have fun showin' off yer guns.
