Nichole’s Sexy Arms Workout…
The weather has been teasing us…a little sunshine followed with some clouds and cold wind blowing through. But I hold on to the sunshine and dream for warmer days soon to be upon us. And my go-to tops for sunshine have to be
tank tops. I love them with shorts, jeans, skirts, pretty much everything as long as the weather allows. It is time to shed winter sweat shirts and bare those arms, which also means it is time to get those arms and shoulders worthy of baring.
For those of you that know me you know I am not huge on focusing on specific body parts. I love full body workouts that give me a great killer workout. But that doesn’t mean that some occasions call for a little more of a specific burn. I definitely call summer a special occasion! I am still going to mix in some heart rate raisers, just to keep it fun!
Tank Top Worthy:
Jump Rope: 2 min
15 Thrusters with DB: I can’t do just a shoulder press…let’s add some squats!
15 Bicep curls with DB: focus on good form….those shoulders should be steady
Donkey Kicks: 2 min
15 Lateral Shoulder Raises
15 Hammer curls
Pushups with Corner (Bunny) Hops: 2 min
15 Sumo Squats with High Pull (Upright Row)
15 BB Bicep curls
15 BB Skull Crushers
Finish With: do all three of these seated so that you can focus on proper form and keep your low back out of play
1 min of Shoulder Press
1 min DB Bicep Curls
1 min Over Head Tricep Ext.
Ruthie’s Healthy Recipe…
Pear, Thyme, and Ricotta Pizza with Lemon Drizzle is a beautiful combination of flavors that will absolutely melt in your mouth!

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Press dough out on pizza pan, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle 1½ tablespoons fresh thyme leaves.
- Arrange pear slices and dollops of ricotta cheese on crust.
- Bake 12-15 minutes or until crust in golden brown.
- Sprinkle with remaining thyme.
