With all of the cardio and ab work we do at the gym, sometimes we can forget to give a little love to our arms. I mean leg day was such a big thing that we all forgot to give a little love to arms workout day. And whilst some toned legs are pretty good, we do have four limbs, not two.
Here are my top 3 exercises to getting strong toned arms. You can set this up as a circuit - do as many reps as you can in 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds before doing the next exercise, repeat each exercise 4 times.
Raised Hands Push Up
To make your push ups easier, start with your hands on a raised stable surface, such as a bench at waist height. Focus on leading with your chest not your head or stomach.
Plank Up Downs
Start in a high plank position, then slowly lower yourself one arm at a time down to your forearms. Then return to the starting position. This is a great one to increase abdominal strength and shoulders.
Plank Side Shuffles
Start in the plank position shuffle your feet and hands to the left 3 paces then return 3 paces to the right. Focus on keeping the hips level and your shoulders over your wrists.
