4 Simple Exercises to Tone The Lazy Arms

Sagging skin on the upper arms as a cosmetic problem 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 that target the triceps muscle.

As soon as you build the triceps, the sagging skin will line up with the arm muscles and reduce their appearance. The following 4 arm toning exercises will tighten sagging skin:


  • 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 floor, before bending 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.

Tricep pushups

  • 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 your triceps if you use a combination of objects to vary your range of motion and feel your muscles burn.
  • Be sure to keep your butt and lower back close to the chair (or whatever you are using) to maximize the benefits of this exercise.
  • Try to perform between 10 and 20 repetitions.

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 behind the head.
  • You want to keep your arms close to your head, elbows tucked in, and perpendicular to the floor.
  • As you perform this exercise, remember to only move your forearms and keep your upper arm stationary. Inhale at this point.
  • Then use your triceps to lift the dumbbell back to the starting position and exhale.
  • Try to perform between 10 and 20 repetitions.

Dumbbell Triceps Kickback

  • Holding a dumbbell in each hand, keep your back straight, palms facing your body.
  • Slightly bend your knees 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 need to focus 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.
