Lose your flabby arms with these simple exercises
Best part? No push-ups!
Are your flabby arms getting you down? Do these simple exercises from LiveStrong's Amber Nimedez every day and see them firm up!
First, get some light weights (Amber uses 3 lb. weights). If you don’t have weights, you can use soup cans.
Make sure your feet are parallel and raise your arms to form a T. Do small arm circles forward, squeezing shoulder blades together.
Flip your arms so that your palms are facing upwards, then do circles backwards. Do 10 in each direction.
Bring your arms down, palms facing your body. Then do a lateral lift, palms facing the ground. Do 10 repetitions.

Bring your arms up to form a T again, with palms facing the ceiling, then do bicep curls.
When extending your arms, try not to let them drop below your shoulders. Do around 10 repetitions.
From your bicep curls, extend your arms up above your head, then lower so that your arms form a W, your hands level with your shoulders. Do 10 repetitions.
While your arms are extended, flip your palms so that they face each other. Bend your arms backwards. Do 10 repetitions again.
Lower your arms, then bend your knees slightly, then pulse up for 10 repetitions.
As you feel yourself getting stronger, you can increase the number of repetitions, or have multiple sets of 10 for each exercise.
