Here’s a few exercises to help you tone the upper arms. I’m afraid if we don’t do some exercises to help the upper arms they will end up rather flabby and drop down in the classic ‘Bingo-Wings’ style. Don’t let this happen, and if they are a litlle bit droopy, turn things around with this short yoga practice. Set yourself a goal of 3 times per week and see how your arms look in a month. I’m certain you’ll be delighted with the result.
There are just 3 exercises, firstly a standing posture ‘Goddess’ which you can do in a simple standing posture if you’d rather not squat. You can even practice from seated at your desk – just make sure you have space available to spread your arms wide.
The second exercise is good old plank pose – which helps to give us strength in the arms, shoulders and hands. The forearm plank is great too – this can be done as well or instead if you have any issue with your wrists.
Finally the chest opener either standing or moving into a forward bend (Dwikonasana) depending on how experienced you are with yoga.
Try to do little and often – when practiced regularly you will tone the upper arms and, by next summer, you’ll be able to show off your upper arms in short sleeves.
