Best Exercises To Tone Arms

At Aguirre Fitness in Henderson, NV, we know that a great body starts in the kitchen, but exercise is also important for good health. Whether it’s toning, building strength or just boosting your energy, we are here to help you do both. We know it takes more than just counting calories to make a difference, so we use a system that has been honed to perfection through the years of success. If you lose weight on your own, one of the side effects of losing weight are loose flabby muscles. To help you with this problem, here are exercises to tone arms.

The younger you are the quicker your arms loose that batwing look.

It takes strength training to get your arms looking toned and fit. Start immediately when you start your plan of healthy eating. Use weights and if you don’t have those, soup cans or water bottles will do. A full body workout will help reduce fat all over your body, but for those batwings, try an overhead tricep extension. Hold a water bottle, dumbbell or can with both hands over your head with arms straight up. Lower it behind your back, bending at the elbow and back up to the original position.

Go to the old stand-by, push-ups.

It might seem old school, but you can’t find a better arm exercise that also tones the body. You can use a standard push-up or modified one on bent knee if the standard is too hard. The width of your hands makes a huge difference on the area it affects most. For batwings, place your hands closer than shoulder width. For the traditional push-up, get into plan position on your toes and hands directly in line with the shoulders. Raise and lower your body using keeping it straight. For the modified, easier version, put the weight on your knees and hands, leaving your knees touch your mat as you lift.

You can tighten your arms while you sit.

A chair dip can be done at your desk and doing a few when you take a quick break can even boost your circulation. Sit on the edge of the chair, extend your legs off the floor and put your hands on both sides of the chair and lift yourself up and forward. Lower your body until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle, then raise yourself up again to seated position. Repeat.

  • For back and arms, do a bent over row. Use your dumbbells or alternatives, one in each hand. Bend at the waist, pushing shoulder blades together and back flat. Dumbbells should be in front of you with your arms straight down, palms facing each other. Pull up, bringing the dumbbells to the chest.
  • A super simple exercise that works the entire body is the plank. It’s nothing more than holding your bodyweight up with your arms. You can do modified versions on the forearms or knees to make it easier.
  • A simple and inexpensive way to do strength training that tones the arm muscles is with resistance bands. Keep your arms in front of you holding the end of the band in each hand and pull.
  • Good nutrition is also important when you want to eliminate flabby arms. It’s important to have plenty of collagen and other types of protein to build the muscle tissue and increase elasticity of the skin.
