Work your way to thinner arms

Bikini season is literally right around the corner and if you've been hitting up the gym nonstop to tone your legs and get rid of cellulite, the results are sure to be impressive. However, if you're still having some trouble with your arms, Glamour magazine is here to help. The beauty and lifestyle experts recently dished on a few workouts that will whip your arms into shape in no time. 

The seagull
To start, you'll need to learn to resemble one of the most popular creatures by the beach - the seagull. According to the news outlet, this workout helps improve your shoulders and triceps as well as your chest, abs, back, butt and thighs - everything you need to tone.

For this exercise, simply place your hands on a pillow on the floor and walk your feet to a plank position. Next, extend your right arm out to one side so that your fingertips touch the floor. From this position, start to raise the arm as far as you can (you'll be able to go higher over time) all while staying in the plank position. Do sets of raising the arm and then bringing it back down to plank for 30 seconds before switching to the other arm. 

Ferris wheel
You might assume a Ferris wheel exercise would consist of little more than sitting around, but you'd be wrong. Instead, this exercise requires you to do some heavy lifting. Grab a thick book and while standing, bring it up to your chest with your elbows staying close to your sides. Next, extend your arms down by your thighs and then lift them up and out to shoulder-height, curling the book toward you when you reach the desired height. From here, lift the book above your head, hold and then bring it back to center. Continue to go around in the circular motion for 30 second sets. 

Alternative boosters
If working out hard isn't your thing, there are plenty of other ways to see results. According to the Calorie Control Council, switching out a few common products for lighter options is sure to help cut back on the scale. Switching from 2 percent milk to skim and opting for grains like quinoa instead of whole wheat are two easy options. 

Trying Bliss products like Blisslabs Nutricosmetics FatGirlCleanse Two-Day Detox could also offer you results in a flash.
