Luckily, with being active by walking, running, and playing sports I have been able to maintain muscle definition in my arms without lifting massive weights or doing a million pull-ups. Actually I can’t even do a pull-up! They are so hard. Since I do want to look and feel my best this year for bikini season and my wedding, I have worked a bit harder in getting my arms toned the best I can. With the help of Elite Fitness and Bar Method, my arms and posture have never been better.
Bar Method has been great for toning my arms in ways I never thought possible. In the beginning to warm up we do use very light weights which tones many specific posture muscles but it’s also the push-ups and planks that get the biceps and triceps burning. Great way to tone arms if you don’t like to lift heavy weights.
I train at Elite Fitness about twice a week and am always pushed to give each workout my all, which can be hard to do in the moment, but I always love the feeling of accomplishment afterwards. With a huge variety of techniques, Dave targets each muscle in my arms with weights and bands. I can feel the muscle toning during each workout and while I’m toning my arms these techniques also strengthen my back, which is an added bonus. Check out a few workouts below to try on your own!
- Attach a band to a sturdy surface or equipment.
- Take one step back and bring back flat with chest and chin up.
- Bring elbows up and to side.
- Pull bands directly back to target your triceps.
- Repeat motion 20 times.
