This is a toned upper body workout for women. It will help you tone your arms and upper body without adding unwanted bulkiness.
I recently got a medicine ball so I have been trying out some fun new exercises with it :) To do this workout at home you’ll need a medicine ball, resistance band and a yoga matt.
Good luck xx

Hi team – I tried this workout as part of my gym routine today (quite a challenge, I felt exhausted after 3 circuits and had to push myself to get through a 4th) and I had couple of questions.
1- Will losing some of the muscle mass on my arms result in “bingo wings”? I started weight training on the basis that I have always struggled to lose fat and figured I may as well be strong and solid since I would never be slender and waif-like. It really helped “fill out” the saggy flesh of my upper arms, but if I now try to reduce muscle mass on my biceps/triceps, is there a chance my upper arms will go back to looking flabby again? My body fat % is around 25%.
2- I’m actually looking to preserve my broad shoulders as they are as I actually quite like the shape and I feel they offset my wide hips/pelvis (I am extremely pear shaped, even in terms of bone structure, and have a 26cm difference between my waist and hips, even though my hip bones stick out and I have some excess fat on my middle). What variations/additions would you recommend for this routine if I want to maintain my shoulder muscles but thin down my upper arms?
Many thanks! :)
If you continue doing light resistance exercises and combine it with light-intensity cardio, it could help slim down your arms but still keep them toned and not ‘flabby’. :) If you want, you can also incorporate this workout into your routine to maintain your shoulder muscles but at the same time, lean down your arms.

I have no idea how else to get in touch with you as I don’t have social media. (Gasp!!) :) I purchased your guide quite some time ago, but had my phone stolen and obviously no longer have access to your program. Is there any way I can get you to please send it through to me again? Thank you :)
I am sorry to hear that your phone was stolen!
We’ve changed our delivery system since the time when you bought the ebook, so could you please send the email to email@example.com with the information what email did you use to purchase it, or send the screenshot of the purchase confirmation email?
It would help a lot with finding you in our system and giving you the access to the Program again! :)
What would you suggest on the weight of the medicine ball?
Rachael usually recommends 10kg medicine ball :)
