My Top 3 Exercises For Toned Arms

When you want to tone your arms for SUMMER! 
Choose a variety of exercises to hit all the major muscles. The big muscles in your arms are the Biceps and Triceps.
Your biceps run along the front of your arm. There are actually two muscles that make up the biceps. On the back of your arm, there are three muscles known as the triceps. One goes all the way up into your shoulder and down to your elbow. The other two start on your humerus, the arm bone, and insert into the elbow.

Building up your shoulder muscles will help round out the appearance of your arms, so they deserve some attention as well. The shoulder muscles are called the deltoids and there are three parts, The front, middle and back.
But for now, let's focus on your Biceps and Triceps.

Keep in mind that building the muscles in your body is only half the equation. The other half is weight loss, which means you have to lower your calorie intake and exercise more. Burning more calories than you consume makes you lose weight over time and reveals the muscles that you’ve been working hard for in the gym.

Bend your arms but keep your elbows pointed toward the ceiling. Bring the dumbbells down until they’re next to your head, then press back up until your elbows are straight.
