4 Simple Exercises To Tighten And Tone Lose Arms

Sagging skin on the upper arms as a cosmetic problem can affect both women and men. It usually falls off due to aging or physical inactivity. You can tighten it up by regularly doing these exercises targeting the triceps muscle.

As soon as you build your triceps, the sagging skin will line up with your upper arm muscles, reducing this kind of appearance.

The following 4 exercises to tone your arms will tighten sagging skin:

1. Push-ups

  • Get on the floor in a push-up position. Your body should be in line with your head, with your hands under your shoulders.
  • Bend your elbows to lower close to the ground, before sending them back to 90 degrees, in the bottom position.
  • Your body should always remain straight, and when you press back, your arms should be fully extended.

Try to perform between 10 and 20 repetitions.

2. Triceps Dips

  • For this exercise, also known as triceps dips, all you need is a chair, bench, couch, or step and you’re good to go.
  • It’s actually better for the triceps if you use a combination of objects to vary the range of motion and feel your muscles burn.
  • Make sure to keep your butt and lower back close to the chair (or whatever object you’re using) to maximize the benefits of this exercise.

Try to perform between 10 and 20 repetitions.

3. Triceps Extension

  • You have to stand up holding a dumbbell between both hands. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • You have to raise the dumbbell above your head until both arms are fully extended. It is important that the palms of the hands are facing up.
  • At this point, you should feel the resistance. This is the initial position.
  • The next step is to lower the dumbbell in a motion behind your head. You should keep your arms close to your head, elbows tucked in and perpendicular to the ground.
  • As you perform this exercise, remember to move only your forearms and keep your upper arm static. Inhale at this point.
  • Next, use your triceps to lift the dumbbell up and return to the starting position and exhale.

Try to perform between 10 and 20 repetitions.

4. Dumbbell triceps kick

  • Holding a dumbbell in each hand, keep your back straight, palms facing your body. Bend your knees slightly before bending your torso forward from the waist.
  • The forearms should point to the ground at a 90-degree angle with the upper arm. This is the initial position.
  • Make sure your upper arms stay still as you lift the weights with your triceps until your arms are fully extended. You should concentrate on the forearms.
  • Pause for a few seconds before inhaling and slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.

Try to perform between 10 and 20 repetitions.
