3 Machines To Fight Flabby Arms

If you’re insecure about your arms, stop covering them up with sweaters and scarves. Tone your arms with this fast and effective arm workout using three machines at your gym or fitness center. So the next time you want to wear a strappy dress, you will be ready.

Shoulder Press
Women often struggle with shoulder exercises, but keep training and you’ll be able to lift heavier weights in no time.

How to do it:
Adjust the seat so that your elbows are at a 90-degree angle when hold the handles.

Push up with your arms and extend them toward the sky, leaving them slightly bent when extended.  Slowly return them to starting position and repeat.

Bicep Curl
Don’t worry- working out your biceps won’t make you look masculine- it will just give you the toned look you’ve been hoping for.

How to do it:
Adjust the seat so you can reach the handles and that your arms are fully extended while resting.

With your palms facing upwards, grip the handles and pull them toward your body.  Slowly return them to starting position and repeat.

Triceps Push down
Your triceps are the muscles that run down the back of your upper arms.  Slim them down and you’ll really see a difference.

How to do it:
Adjust the seat so that your elbows are at a 90-degree angle when hold the handles.

Grip the handles with your hands facing your body and push the handles toward the ground, leaving them slightly bent while extended. Slowly return them to starting position and repeat.

here are a few more helpful tips to remember while you are working out.

Slower is better.  
Ignore those buff men who are lifting weights at breakneck speed- when you lift weights quickly, the momentum of your movements prevents the muscles from working as hard as they could be.

Don’t lock your limbs.  
When performing arm exercises, always keep your arms slightly bent, even when extended.  Locking your elbows puts stress on them, and it also allows your muscles to rest, defeating the purpose of your workout.

Find the right weight.  
When using machines, you want to find a weight where you can perform 12-15 repetitions per set.  If you can do more easily, you’re weight is too light.  If you’re exhausted after 5, it’s too heavy.  

Repeat!
Aim to do 3 sets of 12-15 repetitions on each machine.

Too easy? Here are some simple ways to raise the intensity of your workout:

While using the workout machines, workout your abs at the same time by pulling your belly inward and keeping it flexed.

Between sets, get your heart pumping by doing a minute of jumping jacks, step-ups, or jump ropes.
