Sculpted Arms Workout For Pear-Shaped Figures

These 5 arms-defining moves will tone your upper body and balance your shape.
Many of us faithfully perform lunges, squats and other lower body exercises to trim down hips and thighs. But if you're pear-shaped like most women, you should also add upper body moves to the mix: By training and sculpting your shoulders and arms, you'll balance your shape by adding width to the upper body, which visually slims the hips and lower body.

The good news is that you can get visible results in a relatively short amount of time. And it's easy to get started -- all you need is a pair of 3-pound dumbbells.

1. Shoulder press

Targets shoulders and triceps
  1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand. Bend elbows, lifting the weights to shoulder level, palms facing forward.
  2. Press weights up overhead, keeping your shoulders down. Lower weights back to shoulders.

Reps: 20

2. Half rotation

Targets shoulders, biceps and triceps
  1. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms extended out to the sides at shoulder level, palms down.
  2. Rotate palms back until facing up. Rotate palms forward back to starting position, keeping arms lifted throughout reps.

Reps: 30

3. Bicep curl

Targets biceps
  1. Stand with your feet about hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand in front of your thighs.
  2. Without moving your upper arms, bend elbows, curling the weights up towards your shoulders. Slowly lower the weights to starting position.

Reps: 20
