Toning upper arms for women at home can be done with or without weights. To tone upper arms without weights you simply use your own body weight or use whatever items you have at home that will take the place of actual arm exercise equipment. The more creative you are willing to be the better.
To give you a few ideas of what you can use around the house to make homemade weights here you go. I have used every one of them myself at one time or another. My favorite for bicep curls is gallon milk jugs filled with water. All you need to do is save your empties and fill them to the weight desired.
You can also work the triceps with water filled milk jugs. The triceps kickback is the one I prefer and if you aren’t sure how to do it just check out a couple of videos on Youtube. For maximum results use what is known as superset techniques, which means 2 sets or more back to back with no rest.
Another way to create your own arm weights at home is to use tube socks and fill them with beans, rice or whatever you can find. My last tip is to use canned goods for bicep curls and triceps kickbacks. To vary the exercises do them standing, sitting and lying down.
For those who don’t want to use weight, you can do pull ups and inverted rows for the biceps along with push ups and dips for the triceps. If you don’t know how to perform these types of exercises I recommend you check them out on Youtube as well.
When you can afford to purchase arm exercise equipment I suggest a good set of adjustable dumbbells or resistance bands. These are the two most popular pieces of home exercise equipment used to exercise the arms mostly because they’re both convenient and don’t take up much space.
If you can afford both then I would suggest you do so. Changing it up creates more of a challenge for the muscles and making the arm workout more effective. It also keeps you from getting bored with the same old routine. When boredom sets in it becomes harder to make yourself do it.
An upper arm exercise routine at home consisting of arm exercises without weights combined with bands and adjustable dumbbells would be ideal. Toning upper arms for women at home can be just as effective as going to the gym as long as you’re consistent and keep it challenging.
