5 Easy Exercises for Toned Arms at Home






1- Scarecrow Squeeze

Scarecrow Squeeze


- Stand holding a light dumbbell on either side of your lower chest, with your forearms pointing straight down and your upper arms out to the sides yet slightly lower than parallel to the floor.
- Rotate your upper arms back so the weights arc upward as high as possible. Keep your wrists, elbows, and shoulders in the same position. Pause, then return to the starting position. 10 reps.



2- Curl to Press


Curl to Press

- Stand with your feet comfortably under the hips or shoulders. Rest the dumbbells against your thighs with your palms facing outward. Your elbows should be tucked into your sides; chest is lifted and shoulders are down.
- Exhale and curl the weights up to the shoulders, keeping the elbows into the ribs.
- Inhale quickly and exhale to press the dumbbells over your head in a strict press. This means you don’t use your legs to help you push the weight. This movement is all on the shoulders! Extend the arms, but don’t lock the elbows at the top. Bend the elbows to drop your weights down again, then uncurl the arms to return to the starting position. 10 reps.



3- Reverse Fly


Reverse Fly

Grab a pair of dumbbells and stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees bent. Bend forward at the hips and let your arms hang straight down from your shoulders, palms facing. Raise both arms out to the sides as you squeeze your shoulder blades together. Return to start. 10 reps.



4- Alternating front raises


Alternating front raises

- Begin standing with feet together, dumbbells in hand. Bring both arms up so they're stretched in front of you, aligning your wrists and shoulders.
- Keep arms strong as you slowly raise your right arm up next to your ear. Lower and repeat this exercise with the left arm, alternating sides. Complete a total of 10 reps, five on each side.



5- Tricep push-up


Tricep push-up

- Begin in a supported high plank position with toes (or knees If you are unable) on the ground. Slowly lower down toward your mat, bending your elbows back into 90-degree angles as you come down. Come back up and repeat 10 times.



There are many other ways you can exercises your arms and the adjoining areas :

* Swimming is best for overall weight-loss. If you are religiously following a balanced diet then swimming on a regular basis can help you achieve a perfectly shaped body.

* Get a resistance band and train with it. Stand on the band with your legs apart at the shoulder level. Now, grab the other end of the band with both arms and do a bicep curl. You can also hold the band - wide or closer - with both hands and placing your hands right in front of you, start pulling apart your arms wider, stretching the band and feeling the resistance.
