arm exercises

Recommended Posts

This may be a silly question...but I've had a hard time slimming my arms down using weights...which leads me to believe I'm using them wrong (maybe too many reps, too high of weight)...but if anyone knows an arm exercise that helps to slim down arms, please share!

my Cindy Crawford workout video does a lot of arm stuff. it's the basics, like curls, reverse curls, push ups, tricep bends, etc. if it were me, I'd buy a video, i'm much better at following instructions than i am at coming up with a workout of my own!

I was with a trainer too.. but I'm so lazy and quitted when december started.. but I'm starting tomorrow i hope blush2.gif

 

I told him the most important thing for me was toning my arms 'cause I really hate them.. and it did work... I went 3 or 4 days a week and at least 2 days were dedicated to my arms only, I also did 30 min of cardio every day and that also helps a lot

I have the perfect book - it's called Body Sculpting Bible for Women.

Amazon.com: The Body Sculpting Bible for Women, Revised Edition: The Way to Physical Perfection (Body Sculpting Bible): Books: James Villepigue,Hugo Rivera,Nicole Rollolazo,Robert Kennedy

 

Seriously - it is the BEST! It normally takes me forever to get my arms defined, but this book is doing it fast! It provides a great program for really switching everything up so you get great results.

Check out Shape.com they have tons of exercises for every part of the body. And, you can click on the body part you want to work out and it will give you a huge list of exercises. I love this site for workouts. Oh, I forgot, there is always an ad first, you have to click close this ad and then it goes directly to the site.

I do pilates with an instructor twice a week - so whenever you need advice - I have a connection.

 

Here's what worked amazingly that you can do at home for very little money. Get a stabilizer disc and do push ups (much more effective than push ups alone). You can do them with your knees on the ground. Do it twice a week. You'll get results very quickly.

 

The only way this works - you have to do them to the point of muscle fatigue. The "ugh - I can't do one more of these". That's the only way to slim and tone.

I build muscle mass rather quickly so my first inkling is that the weights are too heavy. You should also couple your weight training with pilates, yoga, swimming, dance etc. Excercises that allow you to lengthen the muscle and stay lean.

 

Right now I currently curl 8lbs since I want a little muscle. I'd suggest 5lbs.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
