Easy Arm Exercises

[ Press-ups ]

My girlfriend, Stefanie requested easy arm workouts that are accessible from home. The truth is, with ten minutes of arm sculpting a day, your arms will become lean/strong. These are four workouts I do almost every day to prevent under arm “jiggle”. My trainer, Chris was kind enough to take these pictures while keeping a close eye on my form.

+ Press-ups: take 3 to 5 pound weights [ if weights are not available, canned food substitutes well for weights! ], come down by the sides and then press up in to an “O” shape [ 25 reps, 3 sets ].

+ Tricep dips: bring the palms of the hands on an elevated surface [ a chair works ]. Come down to ninety degrees with the elbows and press back up. Try to hold it for two seconds when down [ 20 reps, 3 sets ].

+ Resistance band pulls: wrap a resistance band around a pole. Bring the arms to ninety degrees and the pull straight [ 20 reps, 3 sets ].

+ Straight arm pull backs: place the resistance band around the feet. Hinge from the waist & bend in the knees. Pull straight back, pinching through the scapula. Make sure the arms are straight when pulling back [ 20 reps, 3 sets ].

Take ten minutes out of your day & change the shape of your arms. No excuses!

    I just found your site and I love all of your suggestions! But if we don’t have resistance bands, how can we modify those exercises?

    Being fidgety can help you lose weight – really! Keep yourself moving even when you are sitting. Try tapping your foot; doing muscle exercises – tense different muscles and hold for a few seconds, then release and repeat; or drumming your fingers. If anyone asks what you’re doing, just tell them. You might start a trend! You can also do these exercises to tone stomach rather than weight loss.
