If there’s one thing I could wear every single day, it’s a tank top. I mean, bring on all these warm days!
I don’t even understand how I can be Canadian and cover up for 80% of the time…but it happens. But even when the weather is cold and I’m at home in the winter, you’ll still see me in a tank top.
It’s workout’s like this that helps me improve the look of my arms. Working your biceps and triceps will definitely give you something you want to show off. Together these muscles tone and create the “lean arms” look.
