4 Exercises to Give You Sexy Toned Arms!

I send out Bloom’s newsletter every Tuesday to all my subscribers. I always ask Bloom subscribers if they have any special requests on topics I should blog about regarding fitness, motivation or fashion.  Lovely Sharon wanted me to create a post on how to get toned arms, so today I will be sharing 4 different exercises to help you get sexy toned arms in no time!  I work out my arms once every week. These exercises below got me my results and will do the same for you as long as you stay persistent. With the exercises that include weights, don’t pick a weight that is too light or too heavy. Go with a weight that is challenging enough that will get you through the whole workout.  

Let’s get started!

Great lifting shoes, shop this look.


Overhead extension with dumbbells

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart and knees slightly bent, and hold a dumbbell in each hand.
  2. Reach arms overhead, holding the dumbbells vertically. Keep wrists straight. Bend elbows, lowering the dumbbells behind head. Keep upper arms close to your head and elbows pointing toward the ceiling?
  3. Straighten your arms upward; repeat.  



Side raise with dumbbells

Works: anterior and middle deltoids

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart and knees slightly bent. Holding a dumbbell in each hand, let your arms hang by your sides, palms facing in.
  2. Keep a slight bend in your elbows as you raise your arms out to the sides until the dumbbells are level with shoulders and palms face the floor.
  3. Lower your arms; repeat.



If you have questions on how to do a new exercise, I  recommend  asking a trainer at your gym just to make sure you are doing it properly so you don’t hurt yourself.  

Bicep curls

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, grasping a dumbbell in each hand.
  2. With palms facing forward, bend your elbows and pull the weight up towards your shoulders.
  3. Lower your arms; repeat



Bench press

This exercise works the triceps and pectoral muscles.

1.On a weight-lifting bench, lie on your back with both feet planted firmly on the floor. Reach up to grasp the barbell with both hands.

2. Pull the barbell down toward your chest then push it away from you. And don’t make it too easy. Do at least 12 repetitions using as much weight as they can. Ask a gym staff member to spot you for this exercise to make sure you’re using the barbell safely.
