The 4 Moves That Get Carrie Underwood Those Toned Arms
By Emily Rekstis |
Between her muscular legs and toned arms, Carrie Underwood’s strong figure is one of enviable proportions. Which is why we were so excited when her trainer Erin Oprea shared a few arm workouts she does with the country singer.
“We’re all about to rock those tank tops and sundresses, so let’s get you to where you feel your absolute best,” the celebrity trainer told People. Keep reading to see what four arm workouts you can do to get Carrie Underwood arms.
Either staying up on your toes or dropping down on your knees, get ready in a push up position. “Go down low in a push-up and hold that position for three seconds,” Oprea explains. Then push back up and repeat 10-20 times.
Starting up on your hands, get into a plank formation. Then, lower yourself onto your elbows, maintaining the straight plank position. “Walk yourself back up to hand plant and repeat this 15 times with each arm,” says Oprea.

“This is a great exercise that builds beautiful upper bodies but can be quite hard for beginners.” For some extra help, use a partner or strap a band around the bar. If you’re able to, Oprea recommends getting 5-10 controlled chin-ups for three sets to see results.
Sitting on your bottom, press your hands to the ground with your fingers facing your feet. Then lift your hips off the ground to get into the starting position. To begin, bend your elbows back and push back up. Continue to pulse this movement for 30 dips for a back arm workout.
