Training your arms and shoulders can help you banish the fat and give you a well-toned upper body and back too. Of course, you will need to stay committed to getting rid of the excess jiggle under your arms so you might want to think about your diet too. Following the right diet and combining it with the exercises below will help you achieve those sexy arms and shoulders in no time.
Alternating hammer curls
Stand with your feet at hip-width apart with a dumbbell in each hand. Your arms should be bent slightly with your palms facing inward. Bring your right arm towards your shoulder slowly then lower it back down gently. Repeat the steps with the other arm. Continue alternating your arms until you complete 15 reps. Make sure that you use controlled movements when lifting and lowering your arms and that you don’t use momentum to swing your arms upwards.
Go into a boxing stance with your left foot forward with your right foot in an angled position and pointing towards your opponent. Raise your hands to protect your chin while tucking your elbows in and keeping your head down. Your hips should be above your feet. Lean forward with your elbows slightly in and your right hand a bit higher than that of your left as it will serve to protect you. Your left should be loose to release a strike. Move your weight towards your left as you jab at your opponent. Put more weight by twisting your torso a bit as you raise your left heel to shift all of your weight to your punch. Make sure that you rotate your palm downwards as you release your jab. Repeat the steps with the other hand.
Sit down on a bench or chair with your hands gripping the edge and your feet extended before you. Scoot over until your butt is hanging over the seat. Engage your core as you bend your elbows to lower yourself to the floor. Push yourself back up and repeat the steps 15 times.
Another exercise that will help you have sexy arms and shoulders is the goblet squat. Hold a medicine ball, dumbbell, or kettlebell close to your body. Your feet should be wider than shoulder-width apart and feet pointing slightly outwards. Engage your core as you bend your knees to lower yourself into a squat. You can move the weight further from your body to increase the challenge to your goblet squat. Do 15 reps.
Seated overhead triceps extension
Sit down on a chair or a stability ball with your hands holding a dumbbell. Raise your arms toward the ceiling with your arms close to your ears. This is the starting position for this exercise. Bend your elbows to lower the dumbbell behind your head until it touches your shoulders. Straighten your arms back up to complete one rep. You will need to do 15 reps for this exercise.
