Flabby arms: 5 movements to do at home every day to slim and tone them

The skin on the arms is one of the first to show signs of aging, due to reduced elastin production and the effect of gravity. Sedentary lifestyle aggravates and anticipates this problem from which, sooner or later, we will all suffer.

To eliminate the problem of flabby arms, it is necessary to adopt the right exercises. However, not everyone has the ability to lift weights or perform exercises such as planks or push-ups.

Fortunately, there are “lighter” exercises that can be done at home in your spare time, and for which you do not need to be in athletic condition. Below we suggest the most effective exercises against skin falling off the arms.

Circles with the arms

This very simple exercise involves stretching your arms out to your sides and making circles with your open palms, as if you were trying to push the air.

Perform 25 small circles, then rest and repeat three more times.

Wing Beat

Start from the same position as the previous exercise, this time your palms should face downward. Perform a movement similar to a wing beat, but without moving from the starting position.

Perform 25 repetitions, then rest for a few seconds and repeat two more times.

Ball behind the back of the neck

To perform this exercise you need a medicine ball, or any other weight such as a full bottle of water.

From a standing position, tighten your abdominal muscles and grab the weight with your arms extended toward the ceiling. Then slowly bring the weight behind the back of your head, keeping your back straight.

Repeat 15-20 times.

Ball on head while seated

Get your medicine ball or weight and sit on a chair. Grasp the weight with your left hand and bring it to the left side of your body. Lift it until you bring it over your head, then grab it with your right hand and bring it to your left side.

Try to be quick with the movements. Perform 20 repetitions.


A very simple exercise, but one that not only tones the arms but also helps burn a lot of calories. The idea is to mimic the movement of a boxer, unleashing a fist toward an imaginary target.

Unleash 20 punches on each side, without stopping.

Repeat the whole circuit at least 2 times. It will take you about 7-10 minutes to do one circuit.
