Wine Bottle Workout: Try Our 2-Week Tone-Up Challenge

If your New Year’s resolution involves getting in shape, staying healthy, and actually using that gym membership this year, we can safely say you’re not alone. However, staying motivated as the months go by is half the challenge — unless you have a specific goal in mind. And at Ménage à Trois, we’re all for a little positive motivation (in the form of wine, no doubt). Plus, if your kind of workout involves our tempting varietals, then this challenge is definitely for you.
 
As much as we’d like to think lifting a wine glass to our lips is the only workout we need, getting toned requires a bit more heavy lifting. Luckily, these exercises still involve wine — two bottles, in fact. The challenge is simple, requires no gym equipment and can be done at home. The only items you need are two bottles of Ménage à Trois — any varietals will do.
 
The Ménage à Trois 2-Week Arm Tone-Up Challenge
Exercise 1: The Bent-Over Row
With a wine bottle in each hand, stand with your feet hip-distance apart and bend slightly at the knees while keeping your back almost parallel to the floor. Keeping your arms bent, squeeze your lats/shoulders together and hold at the top. Slowly lower back to your starting position. Do 10-12 reps.
 
Exercise 2: Lateral Arm Raises
Stand with your feet hip-distance apart. Hold a bottle in each hand with your palms facing down. Keeping your arms straight, slowly raise them up until they are parallel with the ground, then lower. Do 10-12 reps.
 
Exercise 3: Overhead Triceps Extensions
Stand with your feet hip-distance apart and hold one wine bottle above your head with both hands. Slowly bend at the elbows to lower the bottle behind your head. Extend your arms back up overhead. Do 10-12 reps.
 
Complete the circuit every other day (or every day, if you’re feeling ambitious) for two weeks for toner, tighter arm muscles. As a bonus, uncork and enjoy your bottles of wine after the challenge is complete!

Getting in shape is no sweat with this wine bottle workout.
