US Olympian: Marlen Esparza

Event: Boxing

Most Enviable Body Part: Arms

Six-time National Champion Marlen Esparza trains hard to hold her own in the boxing ring, and it shows. Try this boxing routine for strong arms that look darn good in a sleeveless dress too.

The Train like a Boxer Workout

How it works: Do each set of moves back to back without rest, and then take a 60-second break before going into repeating all the moves again (“round 2”). Work your way up to three rounds total.
