Cute Workout Gear to Start the New YearNew years resolution time

I'm sure you've heard the expression "Teacher's Arm". I apologize to all teachers out there, but you know what it means: the under arm jiggle that increases with age, most noticeably when writing on a chalk board (do they even use those anymore?). Unfortunately this condition doesn't discriminate. Even stick thin arms can fall victim to it. The only way to...
