15-Minute Arm Toning Workout for Busy Parents

If you’re like most busy parents, the last time you lifted something heavy was probably the last time you picked up your kid. Parenting tends to suck away gym time, and finishing off your little one’s leftovers certainly doesn’t make staying in shape any easier.

Luckily, your arms are one of the easiest body parts to target and tone, and it doesn’t take a complicated set of moves to hit all the basics. Do 10 to 12 reps of each of these exercises using moderate weight—just make sure to limit rest time, so you can keep your heart rate high and maximize calorie-burn.
