In the following lines, we will talk about the best workouts for toned arms. Do these routines yourself and the results will surely impress you.
A great exercise that you can try is the chest-fly hand-off. For this exercise, you will need a light dumbbell. Place a mat on the floor and lie on your back on the mat. Bent your knees and raise your arms above the chest while holding the dumbbell in one of your hands. Keep the elbows slightly bent. Position them to point out toward the sides. Open te elbows up out the sides as if you were hugging something large. Raise your arms back up. Hand the dumbbell off to the other hand. Do 3 series of this exercise. A series should have at least 10 repetitions for each arm.
The overhead triceps extension is fun and it will shape and tone your arms fast. Grab a heavy dumbbell with both of your hands. Place it above your head and keep the elbows bent. Align your upper arms with your ears. Keep the elbows stationary. Extend the forearms straight up for the arms to be straight above your head. Bend the elbows back in the start position. Do 3 series of at least 10 repetitions.
The shoulder cycles require you to stand up with your feet hip-width apart. Hold a light weight in each hand and keep your arms close to your sides. Raise your arms in front of you and keep them parallel to the floor. Open them out to the sides for them to be nearly at an 180-degree angle. Lower the arms down to the start position. Do at least 10 cycles in this manner. When you’re done, switch directions and do another 10 cycles.
The triceps swing is ideal for eliminating the “bat wings”. Lie on a mat with your face up and keep the knees bent. Place a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand. Keep your hands a few inches above the floor. Maintain your arms straight and raise your left arm over the chest while you keep the right arm over your head. Lower your arm to the starting position and repeat. Do 3 sets of at least 15 repetitions with each arm.
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Pick up heavy dumbbells in your hands. Push your hips back. Hinge your torso forward for it to approach parallel to the floor. Hold the dumbbells end to end. Pull them up by bending your elbows out to the side until your shoulder blades pinch together. Control the dumbbells as you bring them back down to the start position while not allowing the chest to collapse in. Do at least 2-3 sets of 20 repetitions.
