Sun’s out, gorgeous, toned arms out! I’ve always admired the sinewy arms of my yogi, pilates and dancer friends. You have to see our very own Anja’s arms and definitely those of Genevieve Jones‘. I dream! Just the thought of how elegant they look in their short sleeves and sun dresses gets me running to the gym. Plus, the idea of strengthening my weak biceps, triceps and deltoids super motivates me. In addition, over the years I’ve noticed the difference that focusing on these muscles has in my daily life. I see it when I carry a heavy load of groceries home from my favorite gourmet market or when I am overcome by a fit of reorganizing and decide to rearrange our furniture. But, right now I have to admit that I’m specifically thinking of sun kissed arms lounging by a pool on the Amalfi coast.
