Shaun T Upper-Body Workout for Seriously Toned Arms

Between INSANITY, MAX:30, Focus T25, The Asylum, Hip Hop Abs, and Rockin' Body, celebrity trainer Shaun T has a workout for pretty much anyone. But what he's best known for is getting results fast. (If you've tried his Tough New Insanity Workout, you know what we're talking about!) And, while we're definitely sculpting our upper body for summer's skin-baring tops, it's not just about aesthetics—we want to know that we're strong enough to handle the toughest lifting challenges all year long (even if that just means hauling our carry-on into the overhead compartment on our next flight). So we had Shaun T pick his top favorite arm moves for toning and strengthening. Start adding these exercises to your regular workout routine, and you'll start to see definition faster that you can count down to Memorial Day Weekend.
