We all have trouble zones that we feel a bit self-conscious about and wish we could tone up. Perhaps it’s your belly or your thighs. For many, upper arms are often the culprit, and now that we’re trying to get back to normal, this insecurity is coming back to light.
But, here’s the good news! If you add the right exercises to your workout routine you strengthen the muscles in your arms pretty quickly. Even adding just a 5-minute arm routine to your typical workout routine can bring a change after just three sessions. Within a week you’ll already be rocking your sleeveless tops and dresses.
If tightening and toning the arms are on your list of lockdown goals, then try to add these exercises to your fitness regimen.
This blog will focus on 5 exercises to strengthen and tone your arms while getting rid of the belly fat. The following are five efficient and effective bodyweight arm exercises that do not need any weights and can be done from the comfort of your own home. It’s time to start!
1. Tricep Dip
For this, first, sit on a yoga mat on the floor before placing your hands behind you on a chair. Make sure you keep your hands shoulder-width apart on a table or bench. You can also just place your palms on the floor if you want. Keep your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Now, use your arms to lift yourself from the floor and then go back down towards the floor. Keep your back close to the chair, and elbows at a 90-degree angle while going down. Make sure your hips do not touch the floor. Repeat with 3 sets of 15 dips
2. Plank shoulder tap
Get in a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Your body should be in a nice straight line. Keep your palms flat on the floor and your hips stable. Using your right hand, tap on your left shoulder, and return to a high plank position before repeating on the other side. Do alternate tapping and keep your body as stable as possible.
3. Elbow push-ups
Start by keeping your body in a straight line and place your elbows on the ground. Let your feet touch the floor without your knees touching the ground. Start with a high plank position before lifting your right palm from the floor and placing your right forearm instead. Repeat with your left hand. Now lift your right forearm from the floor before again placing your right palm and then doing the same with your left hand. Once you reach the plank position gain, one rep is complete.
4. Tricep push-ups
Get in a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Keep your elbows pinned to the sides in a way that the insides (of the elbows) are in front of you. Keep your body in one straight line while you’re lowering yourself and come back up. Repeat for three sets of 15 repetitions.
Lie face down on your stomach before extending your arms and legs as much as you can. Keep your neck in a neutral position. Now, lift your arms, legs, chest and shoulders off the ground before holding for two to five seconds. Return back down to complete one repetition.
Stay safe, stay healthy :)
