What are the best arm exercises for women? We have them all. Sculpt strong and toned arms fast with these 17 strengthening exercises.
How to get the toned arms you’ve always dreamed of
Resistance training that improves your upper body strength is the best way to get lean, toned and strong. Use your own body weight or, even better, add dumbbells or kettlebells. A great starting point is with five- to 10-pound dumbbells or a 15- to 20-pound kettlebell – but remember, good form and control is important. To avoid injury, move up to heavier weights only when you are comfortable that you’re strong enough to handle it.
How long will it take to see results?
If you strength train three times per week, you’ll feel a difference in strength in about two weeks, and you’ll actually see a difference (in the form of toned arms) in four weeks. For each arms workout, choose any combination of at least eight different arm exercises targeting various muscle groups. Complete 8 to 12 repetitions, and two to three sets.
