Build heat—and target your forearms—in this 40-minute flow with Liz Arch. Through a series of standing postures, plank poses and simple twists, you’ll work on strengthening your forearms, as well as the rest of your upper body. Working on building to Salamba Sirsasana (Supported Headstand)? This is a great practice to add in preparation. Plus, with so many planks (and side planks), you’ll also work on building core strength.
