The skin on the arms is one of the first to show the first signs of aging, due to reduced elastin production and the effect of gravity. A sedentary lifestyle aggravates and anticipates this problem from which, sooner or later, we will all suffer.
To eliminate the problem of flabby arms you need to adopt the right exercises. However, not everyone has the ability to lift weights or perform exercises such as planks or push-ups.
Fortunately, there are “lighter” exercises that can be done at home in your free time, and for which it is not necessary to have the physical condition of an athlete. Below we suggest the most effective exercises against sagging skin from the arms .
Circles with your arms
This very simple exercise consists of stretching your arms to the sides and making circles with your palms open, as if you wanted to push the air.
Do 25 small circles, then rest and repeat three more times.
Flapping of wings
Start from the same position as the previous exercise, this time the palms of your hands must be facing downwards. Make a movement similar to a flap of wings, but without moving from the starting position.
Perform 25 repetitions, then rest for a few seconds and repeat two more times.
Ball behind the neck
To perform this exercise you need a medicine ball, or any other weight such as a bottle full of water.
From a standing position, tighten your abdominal muscles and grasp the weight with your arms extended towards the ceiling. Then, slowly, bring the weight behind your neck, keeping your back straight.
Repeat 15-20 times.
Ball on the head while sitting
Get a medicine ball or weight and sit in a chair. Grab the weight with your left hand and bring it to the left of your body. Lift it up to your head, then grab it with your right hand and bring it to your left side.
Try to be quick with your movements. Perform 20 repetitions.
A very simple exercise, but in addition to toning your arms it also helps burn a lot of calories. The idea is to mimic the movement of a boxer, throwing a punch towards an imaginary target.
Throw 20 punches to each side, without stopping.
Repeat the entire circuit at least 2 times. It will take you about 7-10 minutes to do one circuit.
