Ladies, we invite you to read this article to know the exercises that you absolutely must practice to tone your arms and take advantage of some tips to avoid stagnation.

The arms: a muscle group made up of 2 large muscles
The arms are made up of several muscle groups: the biceps, triceps and forearms, with each muscle made up of several portions. Since the forearms are involved in all exercises that recruit the arms, we will not deal with the development of this muscle.
Exercises to build biceps
The curl at the bar
The concentrated curl
The desk curl
Hammer grip curl
Exercises to build triceps
Forehead barbell tricep extensions
Vertical dumbbell extensions
Focus on these exercises that strengthen the biceps
The concentrated curl: This exercise allows maximum contraction of the biceps while having the arm perfectly stabilized and without any means of “cheating” during its execution. Keep your elbow firmly against the inner side of your thigh.
Lectern Biceps Curl : This exercise allows the bilateral recruitment of the biceps, which are wedged on the desk. During this movement, which is also called “Larry Scott Curl”, there is no possibility of cheating by helping you with your back. It is ideal for having strong and dense biceps. Consider adopting a grip just above shoulder width.
The hammer grip : It offers the advantage of working the biceps from another angle, with a very different resistance. This exercise is really interesting for finishing. It is important to keep the arms against the sides and to maintain the maximum contraction for 2 or 3 seconds for maximum sensation.

Our tips for toning your arms
If the triceps are a weak point
If your triceps aren’t toned enough for you, train them with free weights (bars and dumbbells) because they require precise contraction and concentration for the movement to be effective. So you will solicit more muscle fibers and catch up. It is also the best way to have strong and resistant muscular foundations.
Don’t over train
We can not emphasize this enough. Arms are small muscles, so it’s important to give them time to tone and grow. Wait at least 48 hours to train the arms again. Remember that it is during muscle recovery that muscles progress, not during training.
thinking about stretching
It is very important to stretch the arms well to facilitate their recovery, but also to avoid any risk of injury. Plus, stretching promotes the flexibility needed to keep your joints strong and healthy.
