One of the most basic exercises you can do to help strengthen your arms and chest muscles are pushups. However, this simple exercise is not as easy as it looks. This is especially hard for people with weak upper bodies. To perform this exercise properly, you need to have strong arms to support your body. Without it, lifting yourself off the ground would be close to impossible. The best exercise you can do as you strengthen and tone your arms is wall push-ups. This exercise allows you to adjust difficulty levels, making it perfect for beginners. This will help you transition to the normal push-ups more easily. To perform this workout, face the wall six inches away. Place your palms firmly against the wall, shoulder width apart. Step a few feet back and plant your feet firmly on the
ground. Start by closing the gap from the wall and stop when your face is near the wall. Engage your muscles (core, bum and arm) and inhale before you push yourself from the wall. When you get to your original position, exhale and repeat these motions for one to two minutes.
– If this is too difficult for you, simply step back until you feel comfortable.
You can perform dips using your bed or a chair, but to fully work out your arm; the best form is floor dips. To do this exercise, sit on the floor. Make sure that your knees are bent

Activate your triceps and slowly lower your body by bending your arms. Stop lowering yourself before your bum
hits the ground. Repeat this process for one minute.
