Bat-wings are considered as one of the biggest arm problems of women. Having large and flabby arms can prevent women from wearing sleeveless clothing such as spaghetti straps and strapless blouses. In order to get rid of flabby arms, you must lose weight. You would not achieve the desired results if you use arm exercises only, without implementing a weight loss plan. Once you have established your weight loss regime, you can implement these arm exercises into your routine.

Push-Ups

Push-ups do not only tone the arms, but they also strengthen other muscles in your upper body. Using an exercise mat, place your palms flat on the surface and lock your elbows. Keep your head upright. Stretch your legs and tuck your toes under your feet. Push yourself slowly toward the floor, while bending your arms and keeping your palms fixed on the exercise mat. When doing push-ups your feet are usually used. However, for women who have never done push-ups, there is a different approach. In a push-up exercise for women, you can use your knees instead of your feet. Kneel down on an exercise mat. Place your palms on the mat, while making sure that your chest, stomach and legs are in one straight line. Slowly draw your upper body toward the floor, bending your elbows in the process. Make sure your chest doesn’t touch the surface. Then slowly lift your body up to the original position. This serves as one push-up. Start with ten counts a day, gradually increasing the number of push-ups a day.

Dumbbell Bicep Curls

Dumbbell bicep curls is one of the easiest and most effective exercises for women. Stand up straight with your chest out and your shoulders level. Have your feet apart in such a way that they are in the same vertical line as that of your shoulders. This position gives your body proper balance for the exercise. Hold a dumbbell in each hand. Slowly lift your hands toward your shoulder, bending your elbows in the process, without moving or swaying your arms.

Single Arm Pull-up (Back)

The single arm pull-up is one of the most popular exercises for women that are being taught by gym instructors. With this exercise, you would need a stable bench that is at least knee high. Place your left knee and your left hand on the bench. The palm must be resting on the surface with your elbows locked. Place your right foot firmly on the ground. Hold a dumbbell in your right hand. Make sure your upper right arm is on your side. Do not move it. Slowly straighten your lower arm (holding the dumbbell) until it is level with your buttocks. Then, bend it slowly toward the ground. This serves as one arm pull-up. Repeat this exercise ten times.

If you want to tone your arms, these are great exercises for you to do every day. Make sure you gradually increase the number of times you execute each exercise. Increase your exercise count once your body has grown accustomed to the routine.
