Working your arms doesn’t have to be so hard that you can’t brush your hair the next day! Many of you have told us that you don’t want bigger arms but strong, toned arms – so if this is you than you’ve got to try this exercise today!

The opposite arm and leg lift  not only works your arms – it strengthens your core, your legs, tush and your back! And you can do this easily and anywhere—no gym membership required.

Opposite Arm & Leg Lift

The Opposite Arm & Leg Lift

Here’s what you do:

Kneel on all fours keeping your arms straight and your back flat. Reach your right arm forward, while at the same time straightening and stretching your left leg back and pointing your foot straight back. Be sure to keep your abs tight and engaged and make sure your hips stay horizontal to the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds, release and then repeat using the left arm and the right leg. This is one rep – to do the exercise completely, do 10-15 reps and that’s it! Easy peasy!

So get moving today with stronger arms—and leg, abs and tush!– and get a great back stretch to boot!
