The 85th annual Academy Awards marked the end of an impressive 2013 awards season. And while the talented actors, writers, directors, etc. are undoubtedly inspiring, come Oscar Sunday, all eyes are on those perfectly toned bodies draped in unbelievably gorgeous gowns. In addition to neutral colors and full skirts, this year's glitziest event was a symposium for sleek, sexy arms and shoulders—which are always en vogue, on or off the red carpet.
Inspired by the incredibly fit celebs who wowed us the most (Hello, Jennifer Garner!), this upper-body workout is designed to sculpt your shoulders, chest, and arms. Do these moves three or four times a week and come sleeveless season, you'll be ready to show off that strong, toned look you've always wanted.
Workout details: Three or four times a week, perform 1 set of each exercise back to back, moving at a moderate pace and focusing on form. Do the entire routine 3 times through.
You'll need: A set of 5- to 10-pound dumbbells, one light dumbbell (2 to 3 pounds), one heavy dumbbell (10 to 30 pounds), and a jump rope.
