What exercise can I do at home as a senior to help tone flabby upper arms?
Grab your dumbbells and begin with your arms by your sides. Hug your elbows toward your body, then curl the weights up towards your shoulders. Be cautious not to swing your arms. (If you have to turn your arms and count on momentum to lift the weight, you’re probably using too heavy a weight.) Repeat this ten times more for a total of 3 sets throughout your exercise.
When people say their arms are flabby, they refer to their triceps. When you wave, this is the portion of your arm that jiggles. (During one of my “Today Show” exercise appearances, Kathie Lee referred to them as “bat wings!” Strengthening the backs of the arms is necessary to tighten this region and eliminate “jiggle.” A tricep kickback is the most basic dumbbell workout for this. Lean forward with a flat back, holding dumbbells in both hands.
Pull your elbows in towards your sides and up towards the ceiling. Moving the bottom portion of your arm back and up towards the ceiling while keeping elbows steady, kick the weight towards the rear of the room. Hold for a second, feel the back of your arm tighten, and then return to the beginning position. Repeat this ten times more for a total of 3 sets throughout your exercise.
Hug a Tree
This exercise focuses primarily on the biceps while also targeting the sides of the chest (including the bothersome region between the armpits) and shoulders. Hold the weights parallel to the floor at shoulder height. Relax your shoulders and then embrace your arms like hugging a tree in front of your body. Keep your elbows level with your shoulders — don’t let them drop — and be aware of your shoulders trying to elevate up towards your ears, which indicates that the weight is too heavy or you’re overtired. Repeat this ten times more for a total of 3 sets throughout your exercise.
Serve the Platter
This exercise works the biceps, shoulder, and chest all at the same time. Begin with your arms at your sides, bending your elbows at 90 degrees. Reach your arms forward, straightening them as if serving a dish, then out to the sides in a “T” shape, back to center, and finally, bring them back in towards you. The whole time, keep your hands facing up. Do this ten times more for a total of three sets throughout your exercise.

Including workouts that target the biceps, triceps, and shoulders can help you shape your arms in time for tank top season. We all have difficulty spots that we’re aware of and desire to improve. Maybe it’s your tummy or your glutes.
Upper arms are at the top of many people’s lists, and this time of year brings this uneasiness to the forefront. The good news is that by including the correct exercises in your training program, you can immediately begin strengthening the muscles in your arms.
One of my customers had a 5-minute arm exercise into her regular training program and saw a difference after just three sessions. After just a week, she felt more secure in her sleeveless shirts and skirts. If you want to tighten and tone your arms this summer, consider including these exercises into your workout routine three times a week. I suggest doing these with dumbbells weighing 3-5 pounds.
Remember that specific exercises may be easier than others, so it’s OK to switch between weights depending on how your body feels. My preferred technique to combine these exercises is to do one set of 10 repetitions, followed by three circuit rounds. At the conclusion, you’ll have completed 30 repetitions of each exercise. To tone your flabby arms, try this workout program.
