Red Carpet Workout: Oscar-​​worthy Arms Succeed with Failure on the Last Rep

  • nikki-red-carpet-arms

Oscar time means body critiques of red carpet stars. Many people now start to focus on their fitness routines geared to their own red carpet moments, a big birthday or wedding perhaps? To get inspiration from these Oscar bodies and a start on your big event, I put together some moves where you test your arm muscles to the extreme, doing three back-​​to-​​back sets for each muscle group — going from heavy, to medium, to light weights. This is one time when FAILURE is a good thing! You want to work with weights and reps that leave you thinking you just can’t do one more.

Here are two free demos of Red Carpet Workouts I did for KTTV in LA and KnowMore​.TV based on my Slimnastics line of fitness DVDs (www​.nikkifitness​.com)

Try these moves and make your muscle shake, so you will be sure and steady for your big moment!
