Tired of seeing your flabby arms every time you look in the mirror? Are they stopping you from wearing those tank tops and sleeveless dresses? If you want to show off lean and muscular arms, then it is about time that you start training them right this minute. You don’t even have to hit the gym to get rid of the flab because you can still strengthen and sculpt your arms right in your own home. If you are wondering how to achieve beautiful arms, you might want to try these exercises out.
- Single-leg spider woman walk-outs. You need to stand with your feet at hip-width apart with your lower back following its natural arch. Engage your core as you raise your left knee until the thigh is parallel to the floor. Extend your arms overhead. Bend your right knee as you lower your glutes toward the ground by hinging forward at the hips. Place your palms on the floor and in front of your feet then walk them forward until you reach a pushup pose. Your left leg should be extended at the back with your foot lifted off the floor. Keep it this way throughout the exercise. Walk your hands backward to reverse your movements.
- Pushups. Another exercise that will make your batwings disappear is the classic pushup. Of course, this needs to be properly executed otherwise you won’t be reaping its benefits. Start by placing your hands directly underneath your shoulders and must be in line with your chest. See to it that your core is tight and that your body is rigid. However, your neck and your shoulders should be in a relaxed state. Your triceps should be the one to do the work for you so make sure that you feel your triceps being engaged as you lower yourself to the floor. Push yourself back up to complete one rep. Repeat this 10 to 15 times.
- Alternating frontal lifts. You should start in a pushup position with your feet at hip-width apart. Your hands should be directly under your shoulders. Engage your core as you raise your right arm before you until it is parallel to the floor. Keep your eyes trained to the floor to reduce the stress on your neck. Lower your right arm and repeat with the other hand. Keep alternating until you complete 10 to 15 reps.
- Curls. Stand straight with your feet together and your hands holding dumbbells. Retract your shoulder blades as you keep your elbows pinned at your sides. Engage your core while keeping your knees soft. Contract your biceps to curl the weights upward toward your chest. Release to go back to your first position and repeat. Do two to three sets of 15 reps.
These are just a few examples of arm workouts that you can do within 7 minutes that will help torch those flabs under your arms in no time. Just make sure that you follow proper form for each one to ensure that you’re reaching the entire arm muscles.
