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).
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!
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.
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!
