For women looking and feeling good about ourselves is crucial for our self esteem. It can be frustrating to want to change or improve as aspect our own body and not knowing where to start.
One of the trickiest things to try to keep firm and fit are arms. Through a day we might not do much activities that require us to use our arms which is why it is so easy to get bat wings. There is not any reason to be ashamed or insecure about having bat wings since it happens to the best of us.
This article is to help assist women might need tips on how to improve the fitness of their arms. Through exercise arms can be made firmer and slimmer.
Here are 5 Arm Exercises that will help tone your arms:
1. Push ups
Push ups are the simplest way in which you can get your arms in shape. When lifting your entire body off the ground, you are using your arms to lift your weight. Muscles in your arms will start to grow and your arms will soon get slimmer. Ideally in order to be consistent about your exercise it is best that you are able to do push ups every time you workout. Your goal should be to work out for a minimum of an hour a week but if you are in good condition you can extend this time. You can always extend the time you workout to at least three times a week. If you are able to maintain for at least a year you will definitely be on your way to getting rid of your batwings.
Planks are the toughest exercises that you will have to endure because of the amount of effort done. The first time I ever did a plank I remember immediately feeling a burning sensation. Planks are exercises that are made to hold up your body and build strength by holding the positions in place. Ideally it is best to do plank exercises when you are finished working out so as to train your body to it. Planking are those type of things that once you do it you will have less and less difficulty with it. What I suggest doing would be to hold a planking position for at least 30 seconds each time you work out so that it’s not too overwhelming. But of course, if you would like to extend this you can challenge your to hold a planking position for a whole minute or 2.
3. Overhead Triceps
Dumbbells are a great way to be able to lift weights without getting strained. Overhead triceps is when you lift your arms up in a folded position with your hands holding the dumbbell going back. Proceed to bring your dumbbells upward while maintain your elbows up. What I recommend doing is to decide how heavy you want your dumbbells to be. This is very important because you do not want to get a sore body trust me. Normally average weighing dumbbells will be around 5 pounds because this is not too heavy or light. If you suffer from any other injuries I would recommend getting 2 pound dumbbells. However, if you are used to working out and strengthen building then 10 pound dumbbells would be ideal.
Triceps Dips are great workout that will allow you to use your arms. It is incredibly easy to use do triceps dips because you can virtually do these anywhere. If you are out at the park a perfect spot to do these triceps dips is at the edge of a bench. But if you are at home a stool or staircase will give you stability. I would recommend doing twenty-five triceps each time you work out but it really depends on you.
