My Top 5 Exercises for Toned Arms this Summer (for NBC News Better)

Tightening and toning your arms is a goal that is at the forefront of the minds of many of my private weight loss clients. Summer is here, and so is attire that shows off your arms!

 

Even if your arms aren’t ‘summer ready’ quite yet, tightening and toning the arms can be done fairly quickly. One of my clients saw results within three workout sessions when she dedicated 5-minutes of her workout routine to her arms. I recommend adding these 5 exercises to your fitness routine 3 times a week. If you’re interested in the arm workout routine I designed for NBC News Better that can be done in 10-minutes, click here!

Stretches for Better Posture & Exercises to Reduce Low Back Pain (for NBC News Better)

Working long hours at the office can lead to harmful impacts on your back and your posture. That’s why I always recommend that my private weight loss clients do exercises to improve their posture.

Having poor posture can lead to many negative health effects, one of which being back pain. Luckily there are exercises that can help to strengthening your upper back and open up your chest which can help to alleviate your back pain. In this article from NBC News Better, I go over exercises that you can do standing up, sitting down, and on the floor. No matter where you are you’ll still be able to reduce the stress on your back!

Full Body Partner Workout (As Seen on Successible Life)

When you workout with a partner, whether it’s with a friend or a trainer, you’re able to hold each other more accountable during the workout. I created a full body workout to do with a partner for Successible Life that includes moves that you and your partner will have fun doing! These exercises help to tone your body and also utilize your partner to help with maintaining the proper form and alignment! To check out this awesome workout to do with a partner, click here!

How to Get Toned Arms (As Featured in Chicago Sun Times)

Are you ready to get your arms in shape for summer? Toning up your arms for summer can seem like such a hard and unachievable task, but when you add dumbbells to your workout it becomes a much easier goal to achieve! 

Even if you already have an arm workout routine, implementing some small changes can completely change your results! These changes can be as simple as adjusting your grip or lessening the weight of the dumbbells you’re using to workout. When I’m working with one of my private weight loss clients I always recommend they do bicep curls and tricep extensions during their arm workout.

If you’re interested in the small changes and more information on the arm exercises I recommend, make sure you see this edition of ‘Exercise Well with Stephanie Mansour’ in the Chicago Sun Times. Click here!

The Best Exercises for Tight Hips (As Seen on NBC News Better)

Many of my private weight loss clients are work-a-holic CEO’s who don’t have a lot of time to spend at the gym – or let’s face it, standing up! We’ve all been told how bad sitting can be for our health, which is why I came up with these 5 stretches to loosen your hips. 

Working from an office, plane, or couch all have one main thing in common – the fact that you’re usually sitting! Danny Johnson, a corrective exercise specialist and personal trainer, notes that sitting can even go as far to pull parts of your lower back out of alignment. That’s why it’s essential to stretch and loosen up your hips! 

I shared these 5 stretches with NBC News Better that you can do from anywhere, even your desk at work! For all the details of each stretch, click here.
