7 day arm challenge

A friend of mine pinned this 7 day arm challenge on pinterest, so I thought I'd give it a try. I have attached the original link as some of the days exercises include videos,, and I am posting this before doing any of these exercises.

Since I use MFP (my fitness pal) to track my food, exercise, weight, and measurements, which have all been updated recently. So here I go....I will either update this post with my fantastic results...or give my two cents (or maybe just one) about this program.

Perform 3 circuits of the following routine.
Tricep Push ups – 12 reps
Rest 20 seconds
Bicep curls – 12 reps
Rest 20 seconds
Tricep Kickbacks – 12 reps each arm (Complete 12 reps total for each arm.  It’s O.K. to either perform one type or combine the three types of kickbacks in the video…only 12 reps total per side)
Rest 1 minute

Tricep Dips – 20 reps
Rest 1 minute before beginning 4 Minute Fat Blaster
4 Minute Fat Blaster
 via Youtube (see below), or it’s official name, Tabata Intervals. You will perform the circuit 2 times which = 4 minutes. This routine is designed to continue burning fat for up to 24 hours.
Tabata Formula:
Complete routine 2 times…follow the video
20 seconds for exercise + 10 seconds rest = 30 seconds
30 x 8(exercises) = 240 seconds / 60 seconds = 4 minutes
