5 No-Equipment Moves For Toned Arms


If toned arms is your goal, weight training is an amazing way to tighten up, sculpt and reshape your body.

However, sometimes using equipment or accessing a gym just isn’t possible. Don’t fret – there’s a lot you can do with your own body weight!

Here are 5 awesome moves to work those arms and get ’em toned!

1. Push ups shoulder tap

Do one push up, then tap one shoulder with your hand and repeat on the other side.

2. Single leg tricep dips

Start by resting your hands and feet on the ground with your chest facing up over, palms should be in the direction where your fingers are pointing at your feet.

Lift one leg and keep you knees aligned, then perform a dip movement where your elbows bend and your bottom heads towards the ground.

Aim to stop before you touch the ground and alternate your leg with each rep.

3. Plank ups

Start in the plank position and lift one hand to move up onto your palm, then the same on the other side and then go back down onto your elbows, one at a time the same way.

4. The Inchworm

Start in the standing position and with a slight bend in the knee, bend down to place both of your hands on the ground in front of your feet, then walk your hands away from your feet until you have reached a plank position, then walk your hands back in towards your feet and stand back up. Add in a push up at the midpoint for extra difficulty!

5. Plank rotation

Start in the plank position, then with one arm, twist it around to point to the sky , pause and return back to the start position without placing your weight back onto the arm you have just rotated. Repeat this way for your set before changing sides.
