Banish Arm Jiggle!

My mom used to call it, the “bye bye” arms.

Why because when you wave, even your triceps wave bye bye, thanks to the loose skin on the underside of your arm, that’s far from toned.
Well have no fear, here are 5 simple exercises, to help you banish arm jiggle for good!

My 5 favourite exercises for banishing arm jiggle include, 


1. Bench Dips

This one is for your triceps. You can do this against any chair or bench really, that is stable and rooted to the floor. I loving doing this in the park, and outdoors, with lot of green around me. So just grip the edge of the bench. Keep your feet together and legs straight. Lower your body straight down slowly and press back up powerfully. Keep your elbows pointing back and back upright. You can extend a leg at a time, for added difficulty. Trying to keep centered and balanced, actually makes you work harder. Do this for 20 reps, or till muscle failure.

2. Sideways Floor Push

This one works the Triceps. Lie on a mat on your left side with your left leg bent slightly behind you and your right leg extended diagonally from your hip. Bend your right arm, putting your right hand on the mat near your left shoulder.

Keep your feet on the mat, extend your right arm and push your body up sideways Make sure you are always aligned from your head to your toes. Lower your body to complete the rep. Do 20 reps, then switch sides and repeat.

3. Reverse Curls
This one works the biceps. If you are in supermarket, you can even do it with two large mineral water bottles, or two big bags of rice. I even tried it in the wet market once, using two moderately sized combs of bananas! Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding the weights in each hand in front of your thighs, palms facing in. Without bending your wrists, curl both hands to your shoulders, then lower them back down to complete the rep. Work up to 2 sets of 20 reps.

4. Jump Rope

Interval training with a jump rope — One of the easiest ways to rid the body of that extra arm jiggle is through interval training. The high intensity workout maximizes calories burned, which results in less body fat. To really target your arms during an interval workout, grab a jump rope. Your shoulders, back, and arms will definitely feel the burn. Try for 15 minutes without stopping then gradually increase time.

5. Balancing Tricep Kick

Do this on all fours. The idea is to kick back your arm (in a tricep extension move) and extend the same leg to the back, at the same time. Trying to stay balanced actually burns more calories and makes you work harder, which is good! Come onto your hands and knees. Place a dumbbell in your left hand. Bend your elbow and pull it up so it’s in line with your shoulder. Straighten your left leg behind you so your heel is in line with your bum. Pull your navel toward your spine to engage your abs, which will help you stay balanced. Holding your left leg in the air, do a tricep kickback by extending your left hand behind you. Inhale to bend your elbow. This counts as one rep. Complete 20 reps on each side and repeat.
