Peel Off Those Layers and Try These Toning Upper-Body Exercises

We know, we know—this time of year, the only moves you feel like making involve getting up off the couch to adjust your space heater settings. But staying healthy and fit is a year-round endeavor, and your arms, shoulders, and back aren’t going to tone themselves. In order to get and keep your upper body in tip-top shape, you need to put in consistent work (e.g., even when your body is buried beneath thick winter-ready layers).

Just ask Michelle Lovitt, CSCS, an exercise physiologist and celebrity trainer based in L.A. We spoke with Lovitt and got her favorite upper-body moves to help strengthen and tone the arms, back, neck, shoulders, and more. And when you’re done, reach for Healthy Choice Power Bowls; packed with whole grains, leafy greens, and lean proteins, they’re just what your body needs to refuel and keep up your healthy momentum. So start your warm-up—four powerful upper-body exercises await.
