5 Fitness tips to get toned arms

 

  1. Change your grip

 

When it comes to arm muscles, biceps are the strongest of them all. If toned, it looks great with the sexy curve visible above the elbow. You can achieve it with bicep curls. Make sure you get the three hand position right.

 

  1. a) palms up,
  2. b) palms down, and
  3. c) thumbs to the side

 

Do 12 reps to the front and 12 to each side.

 

  1. Get on the Ball

 

The stability ball is a very important gear that keeps your core engaged. It can quite wonderfully amplify the results of chest exercises. Why chest exercise?

 

Because chest muscles are very important while sculpting the arms. It creates a sense of stability for the shoulder joint.

 

  1. Channel Tarzan

 

Remember swinging across the monkey bars as kids? Why did you stop as adults?

 

Get your childhood groove on as it is another superb way to shape up those arms. Try to keep swinging back and forth for 2-3 minutes, that enough. This will engage all muscles around your shoulders.

 

Try getting out of the pull-ups zone and challenge yourself with monkey bars. Bring back your childhood to life.

 

  1. Get inner peace and better arms with yoga

 

Who isn’t aware of the several thousand benefits of yoga? From inner peace to flexibility, yoga gives you all (try the best yoga classes in Jaipur). It can also tone and shape up your arm.

Best postures to gain these benefits include Downward dog (Adho Mukho Svanasan) and Side Plank (Vasisthasana).

 

How to perform Downward Dog?

 

Step 1: Stand up straight and slowly bend over from the waist.

Step 2: Walk both hands forward, so your hips are elevated.

Step 3: Relax your shoulders with heels pressed on the floor. Hold this position for 3-5 breaths.

Step 4: Next, walk hands forward to plank position.

 

How to perform Side Plank?

 

Step 5: Continuing from the plank position, lift your right arm towards the sky, rotate hips and stack your feet. Hold this position for another 3-5 breath,

  1. And not to forget, STRETCH as much as you can

 

Stretching is essential. It keeps your joints moving freely. An example of stretching is side neck stretch. Bend down your right ear to your right shoulder with the right hand on the top of your head. Hold this position for 10-30 seconds and repeat for the other side.
