How to Get Michelle Obama's Arms: The Workout Plan

President Barack Obama has a well-documented fitness regimen, but First Lady Michelle Obama is also an avid exerciser, with her toned arms making many a headline lately. Get Michelle Obama's arms with these 6 arm exercises, recommended by fitness guru Kathy Smith, to tone your biceps, triceps, shoulders, and upper back.
Sun Salutation

Contrary to what you might think, yoga can be more than a gentle, head-clearing Zen walk in the park. "You're lifting your own body weight in some poses," which works your arms, says Smith. "The hour class passes and you don't even realize you've spent half the class on your hands, holding poses such as Chaturanga (a lowered plank) and Downward Facing Dog."

Do the Sun Salutation 6 times to warm up your body and, at the same time, strengthen your arms, shoulders, and back. If you want, add this same sequence at the end of your workout to create more energy in your body.
