5 great moves for sleek and toned arms

So many women are very self concious about their arms and will go to lengths to avoid showing them off.

Don’t just cast aside that dress you are in love with because you think it will be unflattering for your arms – try these moves instead!

These workout moves are designed to tone and give a nice shape to your arm

1. Tricep Dips
Get a stable chair and facing away from it, place your palms down on the chair base and lower yourself down and back up again. Repeat 15-20 times. You will feel the burn in your triceps after this move!

2. Dumbbell Curl
Using a dumbbell, simply hold it facing you and pull away again, working the biceps. You can do both arms at the same time and repeat 15-20 times.

3. The Cobra
This stretch is also effective for toning arms. Lie face down on a mat and place your palms face down parallel to your shoulders. Slowly, lift yourself up onto your palms but retain a bend at the elbow. Lower yourself once again and repeat 20-25 times.

4. Tricep Kickbacks
Place one knee up on a bench press and use that same sided palm and hold the bench press. In your other hand, hold a dumbbell. Slowly and steadily, move your arm behind you and back again. Repeat 15-20 times each side.

5. Push-ups
These can be difficult but if you can do some push-ups they will be very beneficial for toning your arms. To make them a little easier, simply rest on your knees while pushing up.
