To tackle the problem of flabby arms, here are five effective workouts that models do to tone and shape their arms.
Exercise 1: Arm Circles Start by extending your arms to the sides and tightly clenching your fists. Rapidly circle your arms forward for 20 reps, then repeat in the opposite direction. This exercise targets the overall arm muscles, reducing bat wings and training the biceps.
Exercise 2: Shoulder Squeezes Again, clench your fists and extend your arms to the sides. Squeeze your shoulder blades together forcefully, feeling a stretch in your upper arms. Do this exercise 20 times daily to target the inner arm fat, improve posture, and relieve upper back tension.
Exercise 3: Arm Flapping With elbows bent at 90 degrees, bring your forearms down forcefully and then return to the starting position. Repeat this motion 20 times daily to shape the biceps and enhance shoulder definition.
Exercise 4: Arm Opening and Closing Bend your arms at a right angle and open your hands and forearms out to the sides. Then, bring your forearms together. Do this motion 20 times daily to tighten overall arm fat, reduce bra bulge, and work the chest muscles.
Exercise 5: Back-arm Stretch Finish with a stretch for the back and arms. Place your right arm overhead and grasp it from below with your left hand. Gently pull down until you feel a slight stretch. Repeat on the other side. This stretch targets the muscles connecting the arms and back, alleviates shoulder and neck pain, and corrects posture. Do each side for 30 seconds.
