There are many exercises that will help you firm your arms. The following are three simple exercises that would take you just three minutes every day. These easy exercises are safe to perform and include back-to-back movements.
The Triceps Tensions:
You can sit for sometime; take a weight in your both hands (something that you can lift up and down) and position this weight over your head. When you do so, make sure that you take the proper position and keep your eyes straight ahead. Now gently, try to balance your weight while making sure that your elbows are close to the body. Repeat it for 25 times.
You can choose to sit on a ball or stand with your feet apart. A stability ball would be a more challenging posture because you will need to maintain your balance as you perform the exercise. These tricep exercises will firm your arms.
The Triceps Presses:
Without resting for a while, go for the second exercise. You can lie on the mat; bend your knees while ensuring that your feet are on the ground. Slowly lower the weights down, bring them to the ground and take them up again. Repeat this 25 times.
This exercise will have a great effect on the triceps which will nicely firm up your arms and increase toning throughout.
The Triceps Kickbacks:
Take light weights in your hands; bring your elbows next to the torso, and when you do so, make sure that your arm is parallel to your body. Bring back your elbows. Repeat this for 25 times. Whenever you bend your elbows, remember it should be at 45 degrees i.e., it should be parallel to the floor.
Remember these tricep exercises are only for three minutes so keep the duration for each exercise to a minute. Now, don’t forget to do a bit of stretching before you begin and after you complete these exercises. You will be noticing firm arms in about a month or two.
