7 Arm Exercises for Looking Flawless in Tank Tops ...


Summer has arrived, which means you’re probably pulling out all of your warm weather clothing.

Are you realizing that you should have been working out a little harder while it was cold?

Me too!

Well, it’s not too late.

Start doing these arm moves two or three times each week and you’ll be ready for those tank tops in no time.2

Increase the weight and the reps as you get stronger and build your endurance.

1. Dumbbell Curl

This move is great for building and toning your biceps, those muscles on top of your arms that you see when you flex.

This move is fairly easy and is a great one to get started with.

Start with five pound dumbbells and do 12 repetitions.

Grasp a dumbbell in each hand, standing with your feet shoulder width apart.

Raise the dumbbell until your elbow is bent and the weights are up near your shoulder.2

Lower to the starting position to finish one rep.

2. Push-up on a Ball

Doing push-ups work your entire arm and shoulder as well as your back.

Talk about more bang for your buck!

This move requires only an exercise ball to get it done just right.

Using your body weight to exercise is something you can do anywhere, so traditional push-ups are just as good if you don’t have the ball.

Lie with your thighs on top of the ball and your arms hanging down in the front, in push-up position.2

Then just do push-ups like you normally do.

3. Alternating Shoulder Press

This move hurts – that’s how I know it’s shredding my arm muscles when I do it.

Stand with your feet hip width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand.

Raise your arms, elbows bent at a 90 degree angle.2

Your elbows will be near your ears.

Raise one arm overhead by straightening your elbow, then lower and repeat on the other side.2
