One accessory we couldn’t ignore on last night’s Screen Actor’s Guild Red Carpet? Sculpted arms! Amy Adams, Julianna Marguiles, Eva Longoria, Kyra Sedgwick and especially Hilary Swank (left and below) were showing off seriously toned upper bodies.
If you want this look for yourself, check out these three moves that FITNESS snagged from the trainers that helped Swank get in Million Dollar Baby shape. All you need is a resistance band, a set of stairs and a chair.
1. Chest flye: Tie a resistance band or tubing around a sturdy object at about chest height. Stand facing away from the anchor point, holding one end of band in each hand with feet staggered and arms out to sides, palms facing forward. Slowly bring ends of band together in front of chest, rotating palms down. Slowly return to start, keeping elbows slightly bent; repeat. Do as many reps as you can without losing form.
2. Triceps extension: Untie the band and place one end under right foot, holding other end in right hand. Raise right arm next to head, keeping elbow bent and close to ear. Slowly extend arm, then lower to start and repeat. Do as many reps as you can; switch sides.
3. Biceps curl: Stand on center of band, feet shoulder-width apart. Hold one end of band in each hand, palms facing up and elbows close to sides. Keeping elbows pressed into rib cage, slowly curl hands toward shoulders, keeping wrists straight. Lower and repeat; do as many reps as you can.
Whose look were you loving on the SAG red carpet?
