5 Easy Exercises To Tone The Inside Of Your Arms
Say goodbye to Bingo wings!
EXERCISE NUMBER 2:
This exercise is like a burpee, without the dizzing effects of leaping upwards into the air.
Start in pushup position, with your hands on the ground and your back flat (careful not to sag!). Lower yourself to your belly, reach your arms out in front of you, and return them to pushup position. Push yourself up and jump your feet forward... and then jump your feet back so you return to pushup position.
EXERCISE NUMBER 3:
This is the most effective exercise for your triceps, and only requires a bench or chair and your body weight.
Place your hands shoulder-width apart on the bench, and extend your legs out in front of you. Slowly bend your elbows to lower your body, until they're at a 90° angle. Press down to raise yourself back up. Make sure to keep your back close to the bench as you perfect each rep.
EXERCISE NUMBER 4:
The classic pushup!
Start with your hands on the ground, shoulder-width apart, back straight. Slowly lower your body to the ground, making sure to keep your back flat and your tummy strong. Slowly push yourself back up, keeping your arms tucked into your sides.
For an easier variation, you can do this exercise with your knees pressed on the ground.
EXERCISE NUMBER 5:
Weightlifting circles call this one the "skull crusher."
You can perform this exercise flat on your back (lying on a bench) or by thrusting your butt into the air (like below). Hold a 2lb. weight in the air, with your arms perpendicular to the floor. Keeping your upper arms stationary, lower the weight by allowing your elbows to flex. Pause briefly, then lift the weight back up to the perpendicular position.
Remember, the only way to see results is to stay consistent! Make sure to keep doing these exercises every other day, and you will be pleasantly surprised by the difference!
