Exercises to strengthen flaccid arms without leaving home

If there is something that bothers any woman a lot, it is when summer arrives, she puts on her favorite tank top or dress and… horror! she sees how her arms are flaccid. What can be done to remedy it? Carolina Dominguez, personal trainer, teaches you a series of exercises to strengthen flaccid arms without leaving home. Because time is money and it is difficult to find a space to go to a gym, but not to take care of yourself. 

Say goodbye to flabby arms this summer! 

We show you a series of exercises aimed at strengthening the triceps and ending flaccidity in the arms, a muscle that “causes” many headaches for women.

Exercise 1 to strengthen the triceps

Lie on your stomach with your hands close to your chest and your head in line with your body. From this position, we raise the body in a block, trying not to let the chips fall behind, and we go down keeping the elbows close to the body. Going up, release the air, and going down, catch it. The most important thing about this exercise: keep your hands and arms close to the chest, and that the butt does not stick out or sink. In addition to focusing on the triceps, this exercise will work the shoulders, pectorals, and back.

Exercise 2 to combat flaccidity in the arms 

Next, from the previous position, we are going to perform a bottom with our knees and feet supported. Keep your knees together and your hands in front of and wider than your shoulders. Go down as much as you can and go up. Important: keep your elbows always out. Remember: when you go up, you release the air and, when you go down, you take in air.

Exercise 3 to work triceps, hips and core 

With the following exercise we are going to work, in addition to strengthening the flaccid arms, the core. To do this, we are going to adopt the plank position, relying only on one arm. With the other, we bend and stretch. Important: do it with a closed fist to give it more tension. It is what is called a triceps kick. Try to control the movement so that this muscle works correctly. Breathe out when you stretch out your arm and catch it again when you flex it. Remember to do it with the other arm as well.

Exercise 4 with material to stiffen flaccid arms

For the last exercise we are going to need some material. Do you have a chair handy? It also serves an object that you can lean on, such as a coffee table, but that is safe. Rest the heel of your hands on the edge of the chair at shoulder width. Keep your back straight, look straight ahead, and keep your core strong. The knees have to be parallel and bent. Next, we do a push-up, going backwards, not to the sides, and go up and down. To make it a little more complicated, straighten your legs and do the same movement.
