Toning Tips for That Special Dress

So you've got the perfect dress... now get the perfect body! Following these simple exercises will firm and tone the body part that your dress will be showing off on prom night.

Toning Tips - Arms and Shoulders

If you suffer from jiggly arms but want to wear a strapless dress, these exercises will buff and tone you up. When doing each exercise, remember to keep your legs slightly bent and your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Bicep Curls - Hold a pair of five-pound dumbbells with arms at sides, palms facing inward. Slowly raise and lower the dumbbells 10 times (one set). Do three to five sets.
  • Tricep Kick-Backs - Keeping your back straight, bend over at the waist while holding dumbbells, palms facing forward. Slowly bring elbows up and extend arms back as high as you can. Repeat 10 times. Do three to five sets.
  • Toning Tips - Legs and Butt

    Want lean legs fast? Do these easy exercises to firm up your legs, thighs and butt so you can step out in that short, sassy dress!
  • Lunges - Stand with hands on hips, legs hip-width apart. Take a big step forward with your right leg until your right thigh is parallel to the floor. Step back into starting position and then lunge out with your left leg. Repeat 10 times, and do three to five sets.
  • Calf Raises - Stand with feet narrower than shoulder-width apart and toes pointing straight. Push up onto your toes so your heels are raised. Squeeze your calf muscles and then lower your heels slowly. Repeat 10 times, doing three to five sets.
  • Toning Tips - Back

    Girls who plan to wear a sexy backless dress must be ready to show off a muscular back, as well as smooth skin and good posture.
  • Back Rows - Bend at waist with knees slightly bent and feet shoulder-width apart. Let your arms hang while holding a pair of dumbbells, palms facing inward. Raise your right elbow, then lower it as you raise your left elbow. Repeat 10 times, and do three to five sets.
  • Back Lifts - Lie stretched out on your stomach with palms resting on the floor near your shoulders. Without using your hands, lift your head and chest up off the floor as high as you can. Hold for 10 seconds and then slowly lower yourself back down. Repeat 10 times, and do three to five sets.

    @country_girl19, I agree with Athena. She might not realize how she's making you feel and it's best to talk to her about it, if not it could get worse. If nothing changes after talking with her, then I think you should rethink things. @WatermelonCurlz, I don't really think you should hang around them that much. They don't listen to you or seem to really care about the fact that you've talked about getting different friends. I'm not saying to just cut them off all together, but I wouldn't stray from the idea of slowly distancing yourself.

And they know that, so they talk about it purposely around me. Omg, ikr.When I ask to talk about something else the ignore me. So I say, I'm going to go find real friends, and they say, OK, like me care. And that's all they want to talk about, at recess, lunch, secretly in class, you name it thye do it. How do I get them to stop?   You should probably just stop talking to them and stuff. don't sit by them at lunch and don't hang out with them at recess. they sound like they are not good friends. if it gets worse, just tell your parents if they don't already know. idk how good i am at advise. hope this helped.  ~JazzyRox

    A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D
