9 Effective Exercises to Reduce Flabby Arms

4. Push-ups:


This exercise has been a staple for decades and with good reason. This workout not only helps you develop a good chest but it also gives your arms a tough workout that makes sure your arms get firmer the more you do it. It’s simple and effective.

How to do it:

  • Get to push-up position, hands wider than shoulder width.
  • Tighten your core and butt then perform one strict push up.

5. Bent-Over Row:

How to do it:

  • Bend your knees about 10 to 20 degrees. Keep your back flat (parallel to the ground) and your head aligned with your spine.
  • Hold a set of weights, arms are straight down and palms face your body. Begin to lift your elbows toward the ceiling. Lift until your elbows are parallel to your back. At the same time,
  • pull your shoulder blades together.
  • Slowly release your arms to starting position.

6. Planks:

A simple exercise, this focuses on core strength but your arms will be one of the muscles greatly challenged by this exercise.

How to do it:

  • Get to the push-up position.
  • Lower your elbows perpendicular to your shoulders.
  • Tighten your core, butt, and ensure a neutral spine.
  • Get at least 30 seconds per plank set.
