This Lazy Girl Arm Workout will help you get toned arms without a lot of effort so you can get toned arms even when you’re feeling lazy.  I’ve gone for periods of time and I feel addicted to exercise. It’s no prob-Bob.

I put on the yoga pants and sneakers. I grab my water and keys. I workout. I do my thing. I sweat. I feel accomplished and glad I get to check it off of my to-do list and I get on with my day feeling awesome.

Then some days I want NOTHING to do with workouts. Usually, it’s because I’m in pain because my back and knee injuries are flaring up.  Sometimes I feel unmotivated, lazy or just straight up don’t feel like working out.

I know should exercise…  Heck, I’m a personal trainer and fitness coach for crying out loud.

And as a coach EVERY SINGLE PERSON I’ve ever worked with feels the exact same way.  If you do, too… girlfriend, you’re in the right place.

That’s exactly why I created my lazy girl workout routines. They’re perfect for the days when you know you need to workout, but don’t feel like it or you’re struggling with motivation.

Today I’m sharing an easy, yet effective Lazy Girl Arm Workout.  This workout is great for days you’re feeling lazy but want to tighten and tone your arms. This is one of several lazy girl workouts, the others are linked for you below… keep reading 😉 




When it comes to training the arms it’s best to use different exercises that use multidirectional movements.  When you strategically combine the right kinds of movements into one workout, you can train all of the muscles in the arms in one session.

When you do all of the muscle fibers suck in tight like a corset.  HINT: That’s what this arm workout does and why it’s so awesome!

The arm exercises in this lazy girl workout routine help boost metabolism and energy so you can lose weight and feel great.

The best thing about this workout you can do the entire routine laying down on your back!  You can do this from bed if you want!  If you don’t like exercise (or flabby arms) you’re going to love this lazy girl arm workout.

See me demo the exercises for you in this video below.
