There’s nothing like a solid arm workout to leave you feeling like Superwoman (flex those biceps!). The problem: You never seem to have enough time to squeeze in a sweat sesh that targets your shoulders, biceps, back—maybe even some abs.
That’s why Women’s Health trainer Kara Liotta designed a workout that can put your arms and abs to the test without requiring a ton of time. I’m talking just 15 minutes, people.
The key? Compound exercises that target multiple muscle groups at once, meaning you get more done in less time. Think: lateral bear crawls, which challenge your arms and abs with one killer move. Bonus: Compound exercises also burn more calories, if that’s your goal.
The result? You’ll work your biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, abs—or as Kara says, “all of the things in just 15 minutes.”
Kara kicks the workout off with a dynamic warmup to prime your bod for strength work, then hits the mat with a set of light weights (5 lbs) and medium weights (8 lbs). Choose what works best for you.
