If there’s one thing we love about Jennifer Lopez, it’s her spectacular figure past the age of 51. You too can tone up and show off the Bronx diva’s defined arms if you follow the right exercise routine.
Many times we concentrate on keeping our buttocks, legs and abs firm, and we forget about our arms.
The skin often becomes flabby and even begins to sag, causing unsightly “bat wings” to appear. Don’t worry. The solution is here.
1.- Arm extension
To achieve a defined and firm arms, one of the best exercises are extensions. You should stand with your back straight and your feet hip-width apart.
Take a dumbbell in each hand and extend one arm upward. Then, bring this arm behind your shoulder by flexing it. Repeat this exercise 30 times and switch arms.
2.- Biceps curls
These exercises strengthen your arm muscles. Stand up with your feet together and your back straight. Take a dumbbell in each hand, with your arms close to your body.
Raise both forearms and your hands to shoulder level and gently lower them back down. Take a few seconds rest and perform 40 repetitions of this exercise.
Plank not only works not only your abs and back, with it you can also show off defined arms.
Lie face down on the floor and lean on your elbows and toes. Contract your body, keeping your back straight. Hold this position for a few seconds, rest and do 3 sets of this exercise with 10 repetitions each.
4.- Arm Bust
Adding a bust exercise to your routine to achieve defined arms is an excellent move when it comes to toning them.
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Take a dumbbell in each hand and extend your arms out to the sides so that they are level with your shoulders. Then bend your forearms and bring your elbows toward the center, next to your face. Return the elbows and return to the starting position. Perform 2 sets of 30 repetitions each.
