Try these exercises to get your arms ready for the summer. (6/16/14)

MASSAPEQUA - Summer is just a week away, but it’s never too late to get your body beach-ready. Some trainers at Lucille Roberts offer up some tips and simple exercises to help you get ready for the sand and sun!

Starting from head to toe, it’s important for a lot of people to keep their arms nice and toned to look great in tank tops and sundresses. Donna Brennan says a lateral raise with a rotation, a cobra push-up and a downward-facing dog shoulder press are great moves to get amazing arms.

Next up is your core and your abs. Trainer John Yohan Chung says doing basic moves, such as a leg raise or plank, with a twist help engage your core and flatten your stomach. Try the plank with a towel by drawing your legs in and then moving them out into a push-up for the maximum movement.
