Suggest some exercises that a lady could do to firm up her upper arm muscles?
Without having to buy equipment?
Are you looking for exercises for the biceps (top of the arm) or triceps (underside of the arm)? For biceps, lifting from the elbow up back toward your body with weights appropriate for your fitness level will help with toning. Triceps, hold your arm directly above your head and bend the elbow so that whatever weight you have goes back behind the head while your elbow remains straight. Repetitions, weight, etc., depend on your personal fitness level. These can be done with large books, water bottles, etc., though if you were willing to buy a single piece of equipment you may be surprised just how useful a resistance cord can be for variety and effectiveness.
Hi there, without any equipment at all... i noticed that a lot of women like exercising their triceps, so you can do push ups - depending on your strength level and preferences you can push up from a floor, a chair, a wall... you can do it with a chair in a dip-like fashion with your arms behind... you can vary the width and arms position - that`s pretty good exercise for toning up... i would choose for a start a pretty easy option and go for 15-25 repetitions...
i have also seen lots of women successfully using plastic bottles with water for exercises - good substitution for 0,5-2 kg weights - so you basically can do all what you can do with dumbbells - all kind of biceps curls, and all kind of triceps extensions - standing, sitting, lying and triceps kick backs...
another good thing do lots of boxing movements... just with an air... if its too easy - the same with holding anything in your wrists (100 - 500g) - works great for toning and firming up...
finally even short sprints do help for arms - when you run for speed and use your hands quite extensively
You should do right exercise and nutrition, of course it is not easy if you don't have enough knowledge about it.
In my opinion best exercise is the combination of right exercise and right nutrition. Both of them will effectively help you to get your goal quickly.
If you need information about it, I have hubs about how to exercise right.

What is the best exercise (without equipment or weights) for the back of the arms?You know the upper back part of your arms that seem to keep waving after the rest of your arm has stopped moving.

I am getting married in about 4 months. I have been a fit guy with no fat all my life. I have just started to build up a bit of belly fat. It's nothing major as yet but I think I need to work on it as I am getting married in the next few months. I hate dieting and exercises. I can do some exercises...

Why does my lower back hurts when I do abs workout?I lay down on my back and do several different sit-ups, sometimes with the upper body, sometimes with the legs getting up and down. But my lower back always hurt. I can feel a gap between my back and the floor when I lay down on my back.

Do YOU think that compound exercises make you bulky?I recently heard a personal fitness trainer make the comment- "compound exercises make you bulky". Before I write a hub on this topic, I wanted to see what people thought about this perspective on compound exercises. Please comment below.
