Arm workouts are something that I dread. I always do it last because it’s so difficult. Luckily, Diane, our Blissful Barre instructor has created an easy 15 minute barre arm workout that you can do anywhere! It’s the perfect length to add to your cardio workout ??

Why Barre Arms?

A lot of people think Barre only works out the legs, but there are a lot of arm movements that you can also use to strengthen your upper half. A strong upper body has a lot of benefits like making daily activities so much easier. Remember when you had to carry those grocery bags (in one-carry) to your apartment? Yeah, that’ll be a breeze after you workout your arms. You’ll also increase your metabolism because you’ll have more lean muscles to help burn calories! We all dream of having smokin’ hot guns, right? This is now my go to quick workout for my biceps, triceps and shoulders! Let me know what your fave barre arm moves are in the comments below.

1. Figure Eleven’s

With your light weights, create a figure 11 with your arms and press your elbows down. This works out the shoulders and you will feel it almost instantly. It’s so important to workout your shoulders because it helps improve your posture and helps with aches and pains.

2. Lunge + Pulse

This one is really good not just for your triceps because you’re also working out your hips and legs. In a lunge, pulse up your arms while holding your light weights. You’ll notice that you’ll feel a total body burn while doing this move and that’s when you know you’re doing it right.

3. Curls

Now on to the heavier weights (if you’re just starting out, you can definitely stay on your light weights– ain’t no shame!). This is your basic bicep curls, but in barre you stand in first position with your knees bent and hips tucked. This OG move totally burns too especially the more reps you do.

4. Push Ups

Who likes push ups? I sure do! And it’s so good for you too. I think these are my fave because Diane’s are knee push ups! I have a hard time using my toes and I always feel like I’m slipping so these are really awesome. You build muscles on your upper body, but you also activate your core muscles. Double win!

5. Reverse Push Ups

These are great for working your triceps! If you get tired of regular push ups, turn it over and do it in reverse. Diane has different variations of this move and this one is just the warm up. Work your arms and your core again without putting a strain on your knees this time.
