Have you always dreamed of having sexy arms? For many women, arms are the last area that we work out, which is unfortunate. Sculpted arms look great in a swimsuit at the beach, in a little black cocktail dress, or even in a tank top while running errands. Believe us, once you have lean, strong arms, you’ll want to show them off. It’s time to stop ignoring your arms and instead work toward the sexy arms you’ve always wanted. We’ve got a simple set of four exercises that are perfect for your arms!
You should start off your arm regimen with an intense static plank. It’s a great way to get a full-body warm up while focusing on your arms, glutes, and core. The hard-core plank is not an easy exercise, but it’s well worth the effort.
How to do it: Start in the push-up position, balancing on your feet and hands—keeping your body in a straight line from head to heels. Exhale as you lower halfway toward the floor (elbows bent toward your ribs). Get as low as you can and hold it for five seconds. For an added challenge, lift one foot four inches off the floor. Repeat 3 sets of 10 –15 reps.
It’s just as important to work out your back and your shoulders as it is to work out your arms. They are all connected, and when showing off your sexy arms, you want the whole package. The Reverse Fly is simple and effective.
How to do it: 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 shoulder, with your palms facing. Then, raise both arms out to the sides as your squeeze your shoulder blades together. Repeat 15 – 20 reps.
Stepping Shoulder Press
Like we said, you want to work out those shoulders. The Stepping Shoulder Press is the perfect workout for building your biceps and shoulders.
How to do it: Stand with your feet together, holding a pair of dumbbells. Lift your arms up and out to the side at a 90-degree angle with your palms facing forward. At the same time, step forward with your left foot as you press your arms overhead and rotate your palms in. Return to the starting position and then step forward with your right foot. Repeat 3 sets of 15 reps.
Triceps Bench Dip
You should never forget the back of your arms. Sexy triceps can make all the difference, and the Triceps Bench Dip is a fairly simple but effective workout.
How to do it: Place a bench or chair behind your back and a stool or another bench in front of you. With your back to the bench, hold onto the edge with your arms fully extended and separated at shoulder width. Your feet should also be extended, so that your heels are on the stool, and you’re bent at the waist and perpendicular to your torso. Then, slowly lower your body as you inhale by bending at your elbows until they are at slightly less than a 90-degree angle. Return to the starting position and repeat 3 sets of 10, or until you fail.
Next time, before you put on your tank top or swimsuit, spend some time working on your sexy arms. You’ll be glad you did.
