Easy Tricep Toner

  June 4, 2015  |    Blog>Exercise

As registered dietitians and personal trainers we hear it all.  Our clients and friends tell us the body parts that they want to shape up and they request simple exercises that will help them achieve their goals.  One of the body parts that our clients seem to find the toughest to tone and that they complain the most about is their triceps (aka, the back of the arm –that area that we all want to prevent from waving goodbye after we’ve stopped waving! 😉 ).  We hear them, we all want to stay on top of our triceps so they don’t get overly friendly–and start waving on their own! 🙂

 

That’s why we’ve got this little move for you!

This simple exercise is one that we do when we don’t have time to go to the gym. The secret to doing this exercise correctly and effectively is really squeezing the back of the arm as you straighten them and pretend you’re pushing a really heavy weight.  So use your own resistance as you straighten your arm.

Directions

1.  Stand up straight, holding your abdomen tight, squeezing your belly button toward your spine.

2.  Lift your arms up behind you with your palms facing the sky.

3.  Keeping your elbows as steady and still as you can, slowly bend your arms and then slowly straighten them, imagine you’re pushing against a weight as you straighten them.  Squeeze your triceps as you straighten your arms to really feel the resistance.

4.  Repeat exercise for one minute or until you really feel the burn.  Take a minute break and repeat again until you’ve completed three sets.  Hello, sexy arms! 🙂
