2 The Push-up
This exercise, is one that uses your entire body as well, but also puts a lot of weight onto your arms to make them work extra hard. To do the perfect push-up, you need to keep your back perfectly straight with your shoulders directly over your hands while keeping your abdomen and chest muscles tight while you perform at least 2 or three sets 20 push ups. This tones around your shoulders, chest and of course, your upper arms.
3 Triceps Kickbacks
As you see in the picture below, you part your feet like so, put one hand on your knee to help you position your upper body perfectly, then using a dumbbell to a weight you are able to use as a part of this exercise and extend your arm backwards for about 20 times per set. And see if you can do 2 sets!
This is a fantastic workout not only for your arms but also those core muscles. Using a Pilates ball, rest your feet on the ball with your hands holding you up on a bench behind you. Then all you do is bend your arms slightly as if you are dipping down with the ball.
No matter how much strength exercises you do, cardiovascular training is always must. Jogging, speed walking or jumping rope, any of them are great for getting the heart rate up to burn some extra calories.
