Get Fit: Toned Arms, Fast!

Get Fit: Toned Arms, Fast!

You don’t have to be a mega-super-weight lifter to have sculpted arms and shoulders. Try these simple moves for stronger, more firm arms! (Trust me, if I can do these exercises— you can too!) If you don’t have dumbbells, you can use just about anything with weight to it. Try canned goods, bottles of water, books, paperweights…ok, you get the idea.

V-Raises
Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, hold a dumbbell in each hand down at your sides. With your arms straight, raise the weights diagonally in front of you so your arms form a V shape, parallel with the floor. Hold for a moment, then return to the starting position. It is important to keep your arms straight, but not locked. Do 10-15 reps, depending on ability.

Shoulder Presses
Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, hold a dumbbell in each hand with your arms bent so each dumbbell is even with your shoulders. Press the weight up until your arms are straight overhead. Hold that position for one second, then lower the dumbbells slowly back to shoulder level. Do 8-10 reps, depending on ability.

Triceps Dips
Sit on the edge of a stationary object/ledge (like a chair, window sill, curb, etc). Rest your palms on the edge next to your hips, fingers facing forward, and slowly walk your feet out so your bum is lifted off the ledge. Keeping your knees slightly bent, bend your arms and dip your bum towards the floor without touching the floor. Do 10-15 reps, depending on ability.

Side Raises
Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, hold a dumbbell in each hand down at your sides. Keep a slight bend in your elbows as you raise your arms out to the sides, until the dumbbells are level with your shoulders and palms are facing the floor. Slowly lower you arms back to the starting position. Do 10-12 reps, depending on ability.
