Our arms are constantly exposed, which is why we all want them to be streamlined and muscular. Like any other part of the body, you need patience, motivation and a healthy lifestyle.

Here are 8 exercises you can do on a regular basis to firm them up and fight the “hanging arm” effect. Don’t forget, summer is just around the corner! So get to work!

Enjoy,

  1. THE BUTTERFLY

How: The foolproof solution, to get visible results quickly, is to perform the following exercise with a weight in each hand. Bend your legs, place your arms towards the floor, and then do some beats.

How many: Do a series of 20 movements by lifting both your arms at the same time, or 10 on each side.

  1. STRENGTHEN THE TOP

How: Repetitive movements are the best way to work your upper arms. Place them along your body and then lift them with your feet while staying well sheathed.

How many: Repeat this movement about 20 times.

3. CIRCLE ARMS

How: Have you always dreamed of doing ballet? Put yourself in the shoes of a prima ballerina for the duration of an exercise. Form a circle with your arms above your head. Slowly lower it to your thighs and return to your original position. Then lower one arm before the other.

How many: Do this movement about 20 times.

4. THE BALL

How: Hold a balloon firmly in your hands. Bend your arms and hold them out horizontally. Then draw circles with the ball.
How many: Do a series of about 15 movements.

5. Side plank

How: Hopefully you know the alphabet inside out because you will need it to do this exercise. The right arm is on the ground, the left arm in the air, perpendicular to the rest of the body. Then draw the alphabet, without making mistakes! Remember to make slow and regular movements with your outstretched arms to optimize the results. Do the same thing on the side and then move to the next arm.

How much: A to Z!

6. THE RISE OF WEIGHT

How: Hold a weight in each hand at your thighs, then slowly raise it to your chest.

How many: Do about 20 reps or 30 seconds for each arm.

7. ARM EXTENSION

How: Plate yourself on the ground, extend your arms with a weight in each hand. Then lower them over your head.

How many: Do about 20 reps.

8. STRETCHING

How: Before and after exercising, it is essential to stretch well. Not only does it prevent soreness, but it also helps to refine your muscles. Stretch your arms above your head and pull them out as far as you can!

How long: 10 to 15 minutes.
