Up In Arms - Three Tips For Tightening And Toning Triceps


Using dumbbells

Instead of investing in a year long membership at the local gym, ask yourself if you're going to use it. For many, the idea of the gym sounds good in theory but they fail to turn up and become discouraged all over again. The health and fitness market is constantly introducing new technology that can be used in the home. Home gym equipment doesn't require travelling time or the effort of getting ready and going out. Perhaps this is why the humble dumbbell has become a stationary item in home gyms the world over. When it comes to shaping up flabby arms, the dumbbell is the best tool around because it concentrates on those muscles alone. It's recommended that dumbbells should weigh between five and eight pounds, depending on fitness levels.

Three unique exercises for arms

  • Basic dumbbell workout - Stand with your feet two feet apart and weights in hand. Raise the dumbbells to your chest, bending the arms at the elbow. Then extend the arms upwards over your head. Bring the arms back in line with the chest area and then down by your sides. Repeat as often as necessary.

  • Arm fat-trimming - Lie on your back on the floor or a bench with a dumbbell in each outstretched arm. Raise the dumbbells with your hands, keeping elbows horizontal and touching the floor. Bring the dumbbells into your chest area and back out again. Rest for a few seconds. Repeat as often as you can.
  • Arm-strengthening push ups - Lie face down on floor with hands tucked under shoulders. Gently ease all your weight onto outstretched hands and push upwards. Hold. Release. Repeat.
For good results and lean underarms, make sure to do these exercises at least two or three times a week.
