5 Super Simple Exercises To Tighten Loose Arms
The loose skin on the upper arms as a cosmetic issue can affect both women and men. It usually sags due to aging or physical inactivity. Therefore, you can tighten it by regularly doing some exercises which target the triceps muscle.
As soon as you form the triceps, the sagging skin will align with the arm muscles and reduce in appearance. The following 5 exercises will tighten the flabby arm skin:
Start in a traditional push up starting position, your feet a couple of inches apart and your arms directly under your shoulders. Keep your abs tight and drop your body straight down bending just your arms. Go back to the starting position.
Grab a chair– this time, it’ll be helping you tone your triceps.
Place the chair against the wall and rest your hands on the seat a shoulder-width apart. Slide your butt off the seat and keep your legs extended out in front of you.
As you lower yourself, bend your elbows until they are at 90 degree angles. Once you’ve reached this point, press down on the chair to pull yourself back up to the starting position.
Bent over barbell roll
Many people perform this exercise with weight, but surprisingly it works great without using any weights. Make sure to focus on flexing on the muscles in your arms and back while pull your elbows back.
You need to stand up holding a dumbbell in each hand. Keep your feet shoulder -width apart from each other. You need to lift the dumbbells over your head until both arms extend fully. It is important that your palms are facing up. At this point you should feel the resistance. This is your starting position. Next step is to lower the resistance in a semicircular motion behind your head until your forearms touch your biceps. You need to keep your upper arms close to your head, your elbows in and perpendicular to the floor. While you are doing this exercise, remember to move only the forearms and keep the upper arm static. Inhale at this point.
Next you should use your triceps to raise the dumbbell and go back to starting position and exhale.
Triceps dumbbell kickback
Grab a set of dumbbells, bend your torso and bring your elbows up. Exhale as you kick your arms back and then slowly return to the starting position.
