Squishy arms are NOT on the menu for today! 

Triceps workouts are a great way to tighten up those arms quickly and easily!

What are triceps? 
Triceps are 3 muscles on the back of your arm, from your shoulder to your elbow. They are used for fine motor skills like writing, push-ups, playing tennis and shooting a basketballs. 

Building your tricep muscles benefits your body by adding tone, making other upper body exercises easier and helping your body lose weight (as building muscle mass burns calories faster).

Give this exercise a try! It's simple, and easy and only takes a few minutes to get a good burn!


Proper Form: Stand with your feet together, knees slightly bent, and bent forward at the waist. Hold onto your weights with your arms hanging straight down (A), (no dumbbells, no problem CLICK HERE for alternative weight options). Next lift upward, like their bags of groceries, keeping your arms close to your sides. 

*try to keep the back of your arm straight and slightly higher than your back.

Bring your forearms back - staying close to your body - until your arm is straight (B) then repeat 4X 8-12 reps each!

Muscles Engaged: Triceps and back are engaged in this exercise.
