Losing weight may be the dream of your life and when you see that your waist, tights and legs are shaped you are more than happy. But what about your arms? Somehow, they were left out of the equation and their aspect is not the one you wanted. There are some exercises that promise you to tighten your arms and restore their natural aspect.
- Triceps dips
Position your bottom off the front of a bench and stretch your legs in front of you. Stretch your arms and incline them so that you put pressure on your triceps. Put your hand on a stable chair, bend your elbows until you lower your body downwards and your elbows make a 90-degree angle. Keep your body as close as possible to the bench.
Once you reach the lowest point, put pressure on your hands and straighten your elbows so that you return to your initial pose. It is very important to keep your elbows inclined during the entire exercise.
- Push ups
Embrace a push-up position and put your hands under your shoulders. Keep your body straight, then incline it towards to floor. While doing this, also incline your elbows so that you bring them into a 90 degrees angle. Return to your initial position, stretch your arms and perform several repetitions.
- Triceps dumbbell kickback

Lift your weight by forcing your triceps so that your hands remain extend. Have a break, breathe deeply then repeat the exercise.
- Bend over barbell row
Position your palms downwards and take a barbell. Incline your knees, bring the torso forward and keep your back as straight as possible in order to become parallel to the floor. Put your arms perpendicularly to the floor and the barbell in front of you.
Stay in this position for several seconds, breath slowly and lift the barbell. Put pressure on your forearms and maintain your elbows near your body. Contract your muscles, squeeze the back muscles and breathe shortly. Repeat the exercise.
- Triceps extension
Take a dumbbell in your hands and straighten your body until your legs are at the same level as your shoulders. Lift the weight until your arms are stretched completely. Position your palms upwards and concentrate the focus on them. Position your elbows perpendicularly to the floor and bend the weights behind your head using circular motions, until your forearms touch your biceps.
It is very important to move only your forearm and breath correctly.
