Drumming workouts have been all the rage in LA ever since Chissy Metz’s This Is Us character, Kate, had an emotional breakthrough in class. Even Madonna is rumored to be a fan, thanks to the routine’s head-to-toe toning perks. To experience the tension-taming and slimming benefits, try Drums Alive.

Arm-Sculpting Move: With drumsticks, hit a soft surface with your right hand, raising your left in the air. Repeat for 30 seconds, switching back and forth.
