Begin this exercise with your arms stretched out by your sides, then bring them together, on arm over the other, then repeat, changing which arm is over the other.
You can try this exercise with no weights at first, then add weights as your arms get stronger.
The push-up is a go-to exercise for great-looking arms. It is also a great multi-tasker – not only does it tone your arms and abs, but it strengthens your abs as well.
If you want to start out with a more beginner-friendly version, try resting your knees on the ground.
Just be sure to lead with your chest, and keep your abs strong throughout the movement.
3.) Triceps Dip
This great toner for the backs of the arms is easy to do almost anywhere.
Stretch your legs out in front of you, then lower yourself towards the ground using only your arms.
Straighten your arm muscles to return to the start.
To make this exercise easier, bring your feet closer to you, with your feet flat on the ground.
4.) Cobra Pose
Yoga poses are great for stretching and strengthening your arm muscles at the same time.
The cobra pose in particular is excellent for strengthening your arms, because it uses them to hold up most of your weight.
Just be sure to breathe while holding this stretch!
5.) Arm Rotation
This exercise is very simple and can be done almost anywhere!
Stretch your arms completely out to your sides, then rotate them in small circles.
This exercise is a great workout for your shoulders and your upper back and is great at warming up the joints in your shoulders.
6.) Bent-over Row
This exercise is great for the experienced gym goer.
The bent-over row uses a barbell or other weights as resistance, and involves pulling the weights upward from a bent position.
It is important to make sure your back is straight through the whole exercise, because curving it could damage your lower back.
7.) Triceps Kickback
With a bent back, hold weights close to your chest.
Then straighten your elbows in a controlled motion, then slowly bring the weights back to the starting position.
This exercise can be very effective with light weights.
8.) Triceps Extension
This arm toner is recommended by Best Health.
Holding a weight behind your head, straighten your arms up behind you to pull it up.
Variations of this exercise include holding a weight in each hand or holding one weight with both hands.
This exercise doesn’t need extremely heavy weights to be very effective.
9.) Upside-down “Namaste”
This more challenging stretch involves trying to put your hands together behind your head.
The goal of this exercise is to be able to be able to have your palms touch completely.
Always begin slowly when learning a new stretch in order to prevent injury.
10.) Push-up with Side Plank
This variation of the push-up targets the arms more specifically, instead of the chest.
Celebrity trainer, Jeanette Jenkins recommends this move for toning the arms.
Between each push-up, rotate the torso outward, balancing in a side plank on on arm.
Return to the start to complete another push-up.
