Three Exercises to Tone Your Arms
Toning your upper body part couldn't be easier! Do you want to tone up your arms, but you don't know where to start? Women don't pay much attention to arm exercises as much as they do with tummy or butt exercises. That's why, I have brought to you some exercises that you can easily do at home to get well-toned arms without hitting the gym.
Pull-ups don't only accent your arms and shoulders, but they will also take care of all your upper body muscles. This workout is fast and efficient, however, you may need some assistance during performing it. A high horizontal bar (higher than your head) inserted in the wall is all what you need to perform this workout. Place both of your hands apart on the bar, push your body weight up till your chin reaches the bar level itself. Ease your body down and repeat for at least 20 times. At first, you might find it hard to lift your body up and reach the bar with your chin, yet practice makes perfect!
2. Chair Tricep Dip
This is considered one of the highly effective and easiest arm toning workouts. In order to get this workout done, all you need is a chair or the end of your own bed (if you're using a chair, make sure it's firm and stuck by the wall so it doesn't slip). Steps are very easy, stand still while leaving some space between your feet. Lower yourself gradually by bending your knees to 90 degrees which leaves your body weight lying on you arms. Push your body up till your arms are straight but not locked. Repeat this 20 times.
3. Bicep Curl
It's the easiest of them all. The basic design of this workout is ridiculously simple as all you need is a set of dumbbells for both hands. The intensity of this workout increases as you increase the weight of the dumbbells. For starters, I recommend 2 kgs dumbbells. To nail this workout, you must keep your back straight and your head still. How to do it? Stand with your knees slightly bent to the front while holding the weights. Bend your arms slowly while directing the weights towards your shoulders and close to your body. Repeat this for at least 25 times.
