You can still get your biceps and triceps toned for summer–minus the weights. Here’s how:
The following arm toning exercises focus mainly on biceps and triceps and most are simply movements.
Combine any of these arm toning exercises with 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise and you’re good to go.
1. Arm Circles
Toning Benefits: triceps, biceps and shoulders
Standing straight (or sitting in a chair without a back if you need to sit) stretch both arms out to your sides.
Also flatten your hands, palms down.
