If you’ve ever envied those women who have amazingly toned arms and look fabulous in a tank top, don’t envy any longer. You too can get those toned sexy arms in a matter of a couple of months. Here are four exercises that are sure to develop shapely arms, if you stick to it.
The key to sexy, toned arms is to have well developed, shapely shoulders. To get these developed, start with the military press. This exercise involves pressing weights above your head, then lowering back to starting position. Experiment with a few different weights to see what works best. Ideally, you should be able to lift the weight between 8 to 12 times before you are unable to lift anymore.
Begin by standing upright, with feet shoulder-width apart. Start with the weights at shoulder height, then slowly raise them toward the ceiling until your arms are straight. Then slowly bring the weights back down to starting position. Perform about 3 sets of 8-12 reps.
Here is another exercise that focuses on the shoulder muscles to provide that shapely figure. Start by standing upright, holding one dumbbell in each hand, with feet shoulder-width apart. Slowly raise your straight arms out to the sides, and raise the dumbbells up to the ceiling until your arms are parallel to the floor. Slowly lower back to starting position.
Bicep curls are basic arms exercises that develop the bicep muscle in the front. The definition between this muscle and the shoulders will add great shape to your arms. Begin by holding a dumbbell in each hand. Slowly raise the weight until your bicep is completely flexed, then lower back to starting position. Do this exercise on each arm, for about 3 sets of 8-12 reps.
This exercise works the tricep muscles on the back and sides of your arms to complete that overall toned and defined look to your arms. Grab a weight in between both hands, and hold it directly over your head with straight arms. Slowly lower the weight behind your head, making sure to keep your elbows as close to your head as possible. Then raise the weight back to the top.
Getting toned arms is part of developing that overall shapely body. By implementing these four basic upper body exercises, you can get those arms toned in no time.
