Want Toned Arms Like Kayla Itsines? Copy Her 4 Simple Exercises and You WILL See Results

There's an undeniable misconception that lifting heavy weights will bulk you up or make you look like a bodybuilder, but that's simply not true, and Kayla Itsines is proof of that. She's one of the most well-known influencers in the fitness world, and it's not only because her Bikini Body Guide has transformed thousands of bodies. Her rock-hard abs and sculpted figure are a constant source of motivation . . . I mean, just look at her! And, lucky for all of us, Kayla Itsines will be leading a real-time workout at POPSUGAR's Play/Ground event in NYC! Get your tickets here.

Kayla recently shared a video on Instagram of her arm and back workout, detailing the exact moves and the weight she's lifting. So, no, lifting heavy weights will absolutely not make you bulk up. Seriously. You still don't believe us? Watch the video above to see Kayla's go-to exercises and the heavy weight listed for proof.

You best believe we'll be copying her regimen the next time we hit the gym. (Please note: Kayla shared in the caption that she went "a few kgs lighter" for this workout compared to her usual weight because she was exhausted, and we've all been there!)
