In this post I have put together some of my favorite exercises and yoga poses to strengthen your arms! It’s important to target different areas of the body to make sure you are working all your muscle groups (and it’s a good way to mix up your workouts!). I went to a local playground to do these arm exercises which was really fun and different! If you are a mom going to playgrounds with your kids or if you just want a change in your exercise routine, I suggest hopping over to a local park to workout.

I would dabble in different exercises and try different studios (which is still fun to mix things up!), but I wasn’t consistent. I finally wondered to myself, “I take the time to eat clean and healthy and incorporate superfoods and herbs into my diet, but why can’t I exercise regularly? Something has to change!” And it has!
