3 Moves for Toned Arms!

An anchor for the band – why not using colorful playground equipment ;o)

Tired of the arm jiggle? Here is help!

3 excellent exercises which can transform your wobbling wings into toned arms. One of them does not even require equipment other than a bench or chair. The other 2 use a resistance band, which can be easily folded and brought with you (eg. when going for a walk).

A smile on your face makes exercising easier!

1) Bench Triceps Dips

Sit on a bench. Place your hands next to you. Lift your torso off the bench. Lower your body, keep holding the bench, till your elbows are at a 90-degree angle. Go up and down. Build your way up to 3 sets of 15 reps. For more fun, lift off one leg!

Keep torso and upper arms stable while pushing back the band

2) Squating Triceps Kickbacks

Have a resistance band anchored in front of you (see pic). Hold both ends of the band. Lower yourself into a squat position, lean torso slightly forward. Keep upper arms stationary next to torso. Extend-bend elbow. Build your way up to 3 sets of 20 reps.

Keep upper arms stationary while performing the extensions

3) Standing Overhead Extension

Have a resistance band anchored in front of you. Stand upright with knees soft, arms straight up with elbows next to ears, holding both ends of the band. Bend elbows to a 90-degree angle and extend again. Build your way up to 3 sets of 12 reps.

Can be easily integrated into a walk or done after a run or bike workout.

Surely we know we also have to watch our energy intake to transform our arms. But building an extra muscular layer is a good starting point ;o)

Here we go! Ideally done outside! Yay!
