There are specific ways of doing flabby arm exercises that give you the biggest bang for your buck. And there are ways of doing said exercises that give you the smallest bang for your buck.
Sometimes, women pay attention to the junk and end up with some serious injuries. The good news is that I’ve done a lot of research and I’m ready to share some of my findings.
So please do not fall under the paralysis by analysis spell!
Here are 4 critical things you should NOT be doing when performing arm exercises:
1. Shutting their eyes. Believe it or not, many personal trainer text books recommend doing exercises with eyes closed as a progression to increase balance and/or coordination. The issue, however, is that you are trying to get toned arms ASAP not increase your balance. Closing your eyes while exercising, will slow down the arm toning process.
2. High-repetition work. You will not tone your arms any faster by doing 12 or more repetitions per set. You will actually slow down the toning process because higher repetitions (and lighter weights) do not work all your muscle fiber types. And you need to work all your muscle fibers types if you want the sexiest arms possible.
3. Repeating the same workout. Doing this is the fastest way to reach a plateau. And plateaus are the most demoralizing thing out there, seriously. Aim to have a new and fresh workout every single time you enter the gym.
4. Body-weight movements. Maybe ok for beginners, but not ok for those that want fast results. You see, free weights are much better because they allow you to work the arm muscles from many angles with any amount of weight.
Navigating all the information out there on arm-toning exercises can be overwhelming. In fact, many women get so overwhelmed that they simply never get off the couch. The key is to take action even if you have limited information. And with the above tips, you can be well on your way to sexy arm stardom.
