Recently I have started doing a few easy weight exercises to tone my flabby arms. With the lock down and this work from home still going on, I feel the hips and arms are the most affected body parts. I always felt my arms were flabby because If I fit in Size M, my arms just don’t want to ! If I try Size L. my arms are happy but I am not because the top/dress becomes shapeless ! Phew, irony of my life 😛
I thought I must share a few Easy Arm Exercises For Women since there are a lot of beginners out there. Let’s begin with Easy Arm Exercises For Women.
This targets shoulders, triceps, biceps and back. Stand with feet apart, extend your arms to sides at shoulder height. Keeping shoulders down, do 20 small backward circles. Switch directions and repeat.
Stand with feet apart, knees slightly bent, and stomach sunk in. With arms straight at your sides and palms facing in toward thighs, hold a dumbbell in each hand. Contract your bicep to bring the right dumbbell up, rotating a quarter turn so your palm is level with and facing your right shoulder. Pause. Now,slowly lower to starting position. You can then repeat with left dumbbell. Ideally, you should start with 3-4 sets of 10 repetitions.
This exercise targets triceps and is extremely easy to pull off. Stand with feet apart and knees slightly bent. You should always be soft on your knees. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, arms straight down at sides, palms facing back. Lift arms straight back about 2 feet behind you. Repeat !
Yeah now this is a little tough one. It targets not only shoulders and triceps but also abdomen. Stand with feet apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand. Bend right elbow to hip and hinge over to left from waist. Extend right arm overhead and to left, keeping shoulder down. Lower elbow to hip. Switch side and repeat. I feel a little sore after doing this 🙁
Now the last and easy peasy one :P. This exercise targets shoulders and triceps. Stand with feet apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand. Bend elbows, bringing hands to shoulders, palms facing forward. Press weights straight overhead, keeping shoulders down; lower weights back to shoulders. Repeat
