Flabby arms are discomforting and mar the appearance of a person, especially women. Fatty arms are so stubborn and it is quite a task to shed unsightly fat. Factors such as growing age, reduced metabolism, reduced physical activities, etc contribute to fat accumulation in arms. A good solution for this problem is regular exercise. Listed below are a few best exercises that will definitely help you get well toned and sexy arms.
Exercises to Reduce Your Arms
One Arm Triceps
Sit on the ground with legs stretched and feet placed together. Position your hands behind your pelvis with fingers pointing towards your back. Bend your legs at knees only the heel should touch the floor. Lift your hips off the floor, unbend your elbows and shift your body weight to your hands. Keeping the right elbow straight, bend the left elbow and move your hips up and down. Make sure your hips do not touch the floor. Do the same with your left elbow kept straight and right elbow bent. This is one of the best arm toning exercises.
You need a chair to perform this exercise. Stand with your back facing the chair and position your arms on the chair. Make sure your balance is proper. Take four steps forward. Keeping your torso straight, bend your knees so that your hips and thighs are in line with the seat of the chair. Now bend lower using your elbows and return to the original position. Do this at least 20 times to get well toned arms.
Lie down on your abdomen and keep your foot together. Place your hands beneath your shoulders. Straighten your elbow and push your body upwards. Return back to that original position but ensure your stomach does not touch the floor. Do this 10 times daily to shed off that flab in the arms.
You would need 2 and a half liters water bottle or weight to perform this exercise. Stand upright with the bottle in your hands. Start rotating your wrist in clockwise direction first. After a count of 30, rotate the wrist in the anticlockwise direction. Repeat the same for some time to burn the fat in your arms. This is very effective when done on a regular basis.
Lift your hands parallel to the floor in front of you. Start raising them upwards and rotate them 360 degree in all directions – back, down, front and up similar to the motion of a windmill. Do them, 30 times per day, 20 times forward rotation and 20 times backward rotation. This is a good toning exercise for both biceps and triceps.
Stand straight with your feet together. Move up your hands higher than your head and join your fingers to form the Namaste pose. Hold this posture for 5 seconds and bring the hands in front your chest with palms joined. Again lift them above your head. Repeat this hand movement for 30 counts for toning your upper arms.
