Exercises for the shoulder and toned arms
Overhead press: Take dumbbells in both hands and stand with your feet at shoulder width. Now push up your hands over your head and bring them down again to shoulder level. Repeat till failure. This is a great workout for your shoulders and upper arms.
Bent over rows: Stand with your legs at shoulder width and knees slightly bent. Hold dumbbells with arms straight at knee level. Now pull your arms back, bending at the elbows and then extend them. Repeat till failure.
Pull ups or lateral pull downs: For pull ups all you need is a bar and you need to heave your self up and down which is a good workout for the full body and this really rips the arms and shoulders into shape. Lateral pull downs involve gym equipment. The machine provides a bar with weights that you can take up and down as per your requirement. While sitting, hold the bar overhead with your hands a little more than shoulder distance and pull it down to your chest. Once again, extend your arms and repeat till failure. Both these exercises work the entire chest, shoulder and upper arms area.
Headstands, handstands, elbow stands, shoulder stands: These are all yoga poses that can be implemented with a fair bit of practice. The aim is to hold yourself up in these postures for as long as you can stay. These postures build tremendous strength in your shoulders as in all the four postures above your shoulders are carrying the weight of your entire body! Start by doing them up against a wall (supervised of course) and once the balance comes, it’s easy to stay in these postures for as long as you want.
These exercises can help you get a sexy arm and shoulder; they can also help you tone your arms. But it is up to you to continue practicing these exercises for well toned arms.
