Want sleek arms but think it is not possible? While the rest of your upper body might need a little extra to look sculpted, your arms are the easy ones to tighten. Here is how you do it:

Opposite Arm & Leg Lift

Opposite Arm & Leg Lift

Get on all all fours, reach your right arm forward.

At the same time, stretch your left leg back and flex your foot.

Hold for 5 seconds, then release and repeat using the left arm and right leg; that's one rep.

Do 10 to 15 reps.


Modified Push-Up

Modified Push-Up

Position yourself resting on your knees and toes.

Place hands in front of you, shoulder-width apart, and fingers spread.

Tuck in the abdominals, keeping your upper body in a straight line.

Slowly inhale and lower your chin to just above your fingertips.

Exhale as you press up.


The Plank

Lie flat on the floor, on your stomach.

Prop your upper body up on your elbows, forearms facing front.

Next, come up slightly onto your knees, toes on the floor.

Finally, lift up onto just your toes, keeping abdominals tucked to support your lower back.

Hold for as long as you can, then relax back down onto the floor.
