“Arms of Love” will get your heart pumping and your arms burning. In this 20-minute high-intensity interval training class, Betsy will energetically guide you through a variety of cardio exercises with a focus on the arms and shoulders. The upbeat instrumental music will help keep you going as you warm-up your arms for three minutes without letting them rest (three minutes may feel longer than you expect!) The workout portion of class includes shuffles in a pike-like position, one-armed push-ups, one-armed planks, modified push-ups, and tricep push-ups. You will repeat the warm-up series before winding down with a few short stretches and finishing in prayer. You may like to strengthen your arms to achieve a more defined look–but did you know that stronger arms also means safer joints? Your shoulders, elbows, and wrists are better protected by stronger muscles. Because this is not a traditional Pietra Fitness class, we encourage you to consider rounding out your workout today by enjoying a Gentle stretching and strengthening class, such as TOB Stress Relief or Your Rhythm.
