Sexy, Shapely Arms!

Wave Goodbye To Arm Jiggle!

WORKOUT: Dumbbell Drills

SECRET WEAPON: Adjustable Weights
Get firm faster by adding weight every 4 to 6 weeks. Buy a pair of adjustable dumbbells to save trips to the store. (Weider PowerSwitch, $80; amazon.com)

THE PLAN: To shape your arms, you need to lift weights-- a surefire way to build muscle tone. Each of these basic exercises has multiple variations that, put together, target all of the arm and shoulder muscles for speedy results. You should do this routine 4 times a week on nonconsecutive days.

-With palms out to sides (side curl)
-Alternate side curls

2. SHOULDER SHAPER
