I am going to have a dress of that type! I am for a focus point and I will bring it up to my trainer and see if he can go along with it; I think it's going to be a good challenge. emoticon emoticon

The fitness focus for February 2011 will be arms, shoulders, and upper back! Show of hands, how many of us have/will have dresses that show off those pesky upper arms? How many of us would like a little more definition in those arms?


Exercise - incorporate at least 4 targeted arm exercises into your workout routine three times a week. Make sure you pick a variety of exercises that target different muscle groups (e.g., biceps, triceps, shoulders). Additionally, look up some stretches for those arm muscles to make sure you aren't sacrificing your flexibility while increasing your strength. If you already give your arms the run through 3 times a week change up your routine a bit to make sure you're getting even coverage on the different muscle groups and/or add extra sets to keep yourself challenged.

Knowledge - did you know resistance (aka "strength") training can improve your metabolism so that you burn more calories even while sitting still? Did you also know that switching up your resistance training can help you avoid those annoying weight loss plateaus? Find a link to something about arms and/or resistance training and post it here. The link can be serious or funny...trivia, recommendations, common issues, frequently asked questions, jokes, or anything else you run across.

Measurable Goal - same deal as last month. Decide how you're going to measure your progress in February. Will you be happy if you complete your planned work outs or do you have a more specific results-based goal in mind? Set your goal and then tell us what it is.
