Now that the summer is slowly creeping upon us, you may be thinking about specific areas you would like to tone up and there are some great exercises to banish those bingo wings and give you arms Michelle Obama would be proud of.

For those of you who haven't heard of this term, 'bingo wings' basically refers to the flesh on the upper arms.

The term was coined here in Britain and refers to women who would extend their less than toned arms when they won a game of Bingo.

I know, it's a bit cruel but it's something that's stuck here in the UK.

Many women are conscious of their upper arms and dread wearing anything which reveals them as the weather starts to heat up.

It's easy to neglect the top half when you're busy cycling, on the stepper machine or pounding the pavement.

Remember, your upper body needs some love too and here are some of my favourite exercises to banish those bingo wings and get yourself summer ready.

1. Triceps Dip

All this exercise requires is a chair or a bench.

Just place your hands shoulder width apart, with your fingers facing forward, behind you on the chair seat or bench.

Bend your elbows and lower your body until your elbows are at 90 degrees.

Pause then straighten up to the start position.

This is one of my favorite exercises to banish those bingo wings.

2. Dumbbell Extension

I love using dumbbells when I work out and when I'm on my exercise bike, I always use my dumbbells for a few minutes at 5 minute intervals.

This way, I'm exercising both my lower and upper body.2

It can be hard work but I love to feel the burn!

Anyway, this exercise involves another one of my favorite pieces of equipment, my gym ball.

Lie on it, holding your dumbbells and with your hips lifted.2

Lift the weights above your forehead and with your hands together.

Bend your elbows and lower your dumbbells.

Pause then lift the weights back to the starting position.
