Sexy Toned Arms
When you see people at the gym, what body part do they work on the most? ARMS! People Love sexy arms. They look good on men and women. The purpose of this post is to give you the key tools in sculpting very sexy arms.
There are many different muscles in the body and each one should be given special attention if you plan on making your upper limbs your best asset. If you spend to much time concentrating on one group of muscles instead of working all of them your proportions will be off which will leave you feeling more bulky and less tone.
So what are the main muscle groups that you need to focus on?
1. Shoulders – The shoulders are the first thing seen by others. Hence why it is number 1! The shoulders help start the definition throughout the arm. You need to make sure that you are working each side of the shoulder muscles. The side, front and rear. Some great exercises include.
Butterfly Raises – In this exercise you can use weights or not and you start with arms bent at 90, palms should be touching in front of your body and then bring your arms up and out with elbows still bent. You should be trying to raise your elbow up toward the sky.
Shoulder Press – You can use weights or find something with a bit of weight to it and use that as your weight. Begin with your palms facing forward, hand by your shoulders. Once you start you are going to push your hands up towards the sky and fully extend your arms straight up. Then bring them back down to your shoulders and repeat the process.
2. Triceps – triceps are usually the muscle that gets skipped over completely when it comes to working your arms. But little do we know…the tricpes are a big key muscle in sexy arms. In order to give your arm definition all around the triceps must be worked.
Tricep Dips – in this exercise you need to find a bar or bench. Put your palms on the bench, with fingers facing forward. Bring your legs straight out in front of you so that your triceps are the only thing on the bench. Then dip down so your triceps will bend to a 90 degree angle. Once you have come down, push yourself back up only using your tricep muscles!
Tricep Raises – In this exercise you will use a weight of any kind. Start with your elbow bent back and in line with your eyes. When you go you will bring the weight forward as if you were throwing something. Go all the way till your arm is fully lengthened then bring the weight back down towards your back. It will be a reverse curl.
3. Biceps – Since this is the muscle that people tend to focus on the most you need to make sure that you are WORK IT but don’t over work it.
Bicep Curls – in this exercises you can use weights, bands or alternatives to give you an extra burn. Start with you elbows next to your sides and your arms almost straight. When your ready (using your biceps and NOT your back) lift the weights up towards your shoulders bending at the elbows. More reps – Less weight for toning and More Weight – Less Reps for Big arms.
Pull ups – You can make pull ups work for your biceps if you flip your hands around so that you are looking at your palms. But the bar between your body and your hands and start pulling!
