Feb 24 2014 - 10:25am

Bored with your usually dumbbell routine? Then hop on a yoga mat and do these six basic yet effective yoga poses. They'll target your arms and upper back, and for an added bonus, they'll also work your core, leaving you strong and sculpted. Flow through all six poses on the right side (holding each for five breaths) and then repeat on the left. Want more? Repeat this short sequence once or twice to really work the upper body.
