For beautiful arms

Below we’ve brought out a few exercises for your arms.

  • Quick bend, slow stretch
Begin by standing your knees, while keeping your arms and thighs perpendicular to your body, and your head in line with your body (looking diagonally down). Keep your toes stretched, support your palms on the ground at shoulder-width, hold your fingers in front and a bit spread. On one, do strong hand bends from the elbows. On two, three, and four, stretch your hands slowly back to your starting position. Breathe regularly and repeat the exercise 10 to 15 times.

  • Slow bend, quick stretch
Stand in front of a chair, grab the edges of the chair and lower to a press-up position. Keep your entire body straight and push your shoulder blades together. Count out one, two, three, and do a slow push-up in this position with your elbows pointed outwards. On four, do a quick stretch. Repeat 4 to 8 times, remembering to breathe regularly. Then return to your original position. Relax yourself and gently shake your hands and legs. Then repeat the whole exercise 5 to 10 times.

  • Bends and stretches
Stand in front of a table and squat, while holding the edge of the table at shoulder-width with your four fingers on top and your thumb below the edge. Stretch your legs alternately under the table supporting them on full-soles. Keep your body straight with your shoulder blades pushed together and shoulders driven backwards. Bend and stretch your arms from the elbows. Do this 3-4 times in a row. Don’t forget to observe your breathing. Then bring your legs back to a squat, rise and relax your body.
