3 SIMPLE WORKOUTS TO TONE ARMS AND GET RID OF FLAB

3 SIMPLE WORKOUTS TO TONE ARMS AND GET RID OF FLAB

If you have jiggly upper arms, it's your triceps (or lack there of) that are likely the culprit. Triceps are often forgotten during weight training which can cause these muscles to atrophy, which basically causes them to lose their strength and tone. Muscle atrophy, along with excess body fat are factors that contribute to the arm's flabby appearance. In order to build strength and maintain tone in your triceps, here are 3 simple exercises that should be staples in your weight training routine.

 

Double-Arm Dumbbell Overhead Extensions

This is a single-joint, isolation exercise that targets the triceps and is convenient while offering variety. Although a basic exercise that only involves extending the elbow, the tricep extension has many variations so you won't get bored with it. Because you can do the tricep extension exercise with different types of resistance and in several body positions, it is a convenient exercise to incorporate into your workout routine. Other triceps exercises require specific equipment, but you can always find an alternative for the tricep extension exercise. If you don't have barbell, use a dumbbell. If you don't have a weight bench, do a seated or standing variation of this exercise.

Bench Dips

Dips are a challenging upper-body strength-training exercise, but they can be modified so that people of all levels can incorporate them into their workouts. The exercise requires you to lift your own body weight, so how challenging they are depends on how much you currently weigh.

Dips are a compound exercise, which means that they require movement around multiple joints. Compound exercises are very beneficial because they develop multiple muscle groups simultaneously, and build strength and tone in multiple muscle groups with just dips. Compound exercises also more closely mimic movements that you perform in day-to-day activities. As a result, the strength and coordination you develop from dips will make these activities easier to perform.
