Now to maximize your workout, you need to start with a warm up wherein each movement should be done for 60 seconds with a 20 second rest period. Try running through the routine once (5 minutes in total).
Toning Exercises for a Sexier Arms
Wall push- up is a type of workout that will tone your whole body. By taking off the extra strain of gravity and focusing on the contraction and extension of the triceps wall push-ups allow for maximum gain with minimum strain.
How to do the wall push-ups:
Find a flat and sturdy wall, stand six inches away from that wall and place your hands shoulder-width apart on it.
Step back until the ball of your feet are firmly placed on the ground and your heels are off the ground. Take a deep breath as you descend towards the wall (while keeping your glutes flexed) and exhale air as you come up.
Floor dips are one of the best exercises to tone not just your arms but your entire body. Elevated chair dips allow you to maintain proper form and target your arms in the workout. To do floor dips you need to:
Sit on the floor with your knees bent and your feet and fingers facing forward, almost like a crab walk.
Tighten your core and glutes to raise yourself off the floor until you are in a reverse table top position.
Lower your body by bending your arms- This will activate your triceps while keeping your legs and glutes raised and away from the floor.
Extend your arms to raise yourself back to a tabletop passion and repeat.
Half Circle Rotations
Half circles are a good form of exercise because they not only keep your mind focused, but they also work your deep tissue muscles by changing directions.
To do half circle arm rotations you need to:
Stand shoulder width apart and hold your arms out to the side.
With your palms facing the floor rotate your arms in a half circle forward until your thumb is pointing towards the ground, then rotate back to the original position.
Make sure to keep your elbows locked to maximize your muscle activation and maintain control throughout the workout.
Weight Free Rows
This workout will target your biceps, back, and triceps.
To do weight free rows,
Bend forward slightly by hinging at the hip, bend your elbow at your side, and pull your arms back without bending your elbow.
