Thankfully, you do not have to visit a gym to get fabulously toned arms. There are few simple exercises that you can do at home whenever you have time to do away with the jiggly arms and make them well toned and beautiful.
Easy Exercises to Get Rid of Jiggly Arms
1. Prayer Pose
Stand straight with feet positioned hip width apart and arms on your sides. Look straight and raise both your arms straight upward above your head. Join the palms over your head in the Namaste or prayer pose and bring them down in front of your trunk. Relax and repeat the movement for 30 counts.
2. Triceps Dips
Stand in front of a chair with your rear side facing the chair. Grip the bench by bringing your hands backward and stretch your legs forward or bend your knees. With this as your starting posture, slowly lower your body towards the ground until your elbows are at 90-degree angle and push your body upward to the original position. Do this continuously for 30 counts. Concentrate on your triceps while doing the exercise.
3. Triceps Extensions
Lie down on the ground with knees bent and hold 1 kg weight on both your hands. Lift the weights straight above your chest and bring them over your head to touch the floor. Your elbows should be positioned on the sides of your head as you bring your arms over your head. Lift the weights back to the original position and do 15 repeats.
4. Bent Over Row
Stand with feet shoulder width apart and hold weight in both the hands. Bend a little forward and tuck your elbows close to the sides of your body. Keep your spine straight and head pointed. Take a deep breath and lift the weight up towards your chest, tighten your core and back muscles and stay in the position for a second. Lower the weight and repeat the same for 25 counts.
5. Sideways Floor Push
Lie down on the ground on the left side. Bend your left leg a little behind you while extending your right leg diagonally from the hip. Fold your left hand around the body. Bend the right arm and put it on the mat in front of your left shoulder. Now, extend the right arm and push the body up. Make sure not to lock the elbow. Slowly lower the body down. Repeat 24 reps and then switch sides.
6. Arm Circles
This exercise will target your shoulders, biceps and triceps. Stand straight and extend your arms to the side of your body at 90-degree to the body. Now, move your arms in fast circles. Do as much rotations as possible and then reverse the movement. Move your arms now in the reverse direction. Repeat this movement two more times.
7. Downward Dog
This pose tones your arms. Form a reverse V-shape by pressing your heels down and keeping your hands flat on the ground. In this posture, your spine will form a straight line to the ground while the hips are pressed back. Bend the knees, so that your body is in reverse V-Shape. Using your arms push your weight on the heels. Make sure not to round the back.
