Three great arm-toning workouts

I found three great arm toning workouts that I do regularly. I’ve got three workouts, one is yoga-based, the other is using weights and the other is using your own body resistance.

All three are great examples of muscle conditioning. If you want to feel more of a challenge, do these exercises slower. If you like to increase the intensity and challenge, do more repetitions. 

Strong mean arms are both beautiful to look at and very functional. Often our legs and lower body is easier to build muscle than our upper body.

So don’t forget about your arms when you work out.

I do these yoga poses regularly to keep my arms toned and in shape:

For those of you who want to work with weights, here are some great arm routines using dumbbells:


And finally, using your own body resistance is highly effective. Not only does this give your body awareness but using your own bodyweight is a safe and inexpensive way to work out at home, at a hotel or even in the gym.

I like working in intervals. That means working hard for a minute and then resting for 30 seconds. Or, working hard for 30 seconds and resting for 10 seconds. Intervals are highly effective and build muscle.

Remember, consistency is key. Do these routines regularly and you will see results.
