"Swimming is one of the best ways to tone your upper body," says Michael George, who's trained Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Moore. Aim for 30 minutes, three times per week for best results. Other great arm and shoulder exercises: Jumping rope and playing tennis or basketball.
Targets: Shoulders and biceps
Sit on a stability ball, holding a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell in each hand, palms facing up. Curl weights toward shoulder, then slowly press dumbbells overhead while turning palms to face forward. Return to start, turning arms back in as you lower. Do 20 reps; 3 sets total.
"Cap sleeves help highlight beautiful biceps. If you prefer to cover your upper arms, wear a kimono top or three-quarter-length tee with sleeves that hit just above the elbow," says La Morte.
