I want to get my arms in shape. Right now they're okay, but I never feel super great about going out in sleeveless shirts. I don't necessarily want guns or anything, I just want my arms to be more toned – and slimmer. I don't want to deal with that toneless flap for the rest of my life, you know? Fortunately, it's relatively easy to tone your arms and make them thinner. They don't have to be heavily muscled; there are exercises for slimming your arms that will just leave them shapely and comely!
1. Bicep Curls

Whenever you want to find exercises for slimming your arms, it's important to focus on your biceps. Bicep curls are great for that, and they're easy to do. You need some small weights, and you can start really small if you need to, gradually working your way up to something heavier. Five pound weights fall right in the middle. Anyway, your back needs to be straight, you hold the weights with your palms facing forward, and you curl each hand to your shoulder.

2. Hammer Curls

Hammer curls work both your biceps and your forearms. This time, while holding the weights, your palms should face inward and you need to keep your elbows near your body. It's basically the same as a bicep curl, where you bring your hands up to your shoulder, but actually, the direction of your palm makes a huge difference.

3. Modified Push-Ups

I abhor push-ups, but a modified version is really a great exercise for slimming your arms. With this version, you're on your knees, which makes 2 Day Diets it easier to get your arms completely extended as you push up with your arms. If you're not good at regular push-ups, this is a great alternative, and it will still work your arms beautifully.

4. Triceps Dips

This exercise is ideal if you want the backs of your arms toned. Get a chair, and position yourself so you're a few feet away from it as you face away. Your hands go on the seat, which should be behind you now, but your fingers need to be pointing toward your body. With your legs straight, dip down slowly, using your arms in a slow bend. Stop when your hiney is ready to nearly touch the floor. Then, use your arms – primarily your triceps – to push yourself up again.

5. Triceps Extensions

Triceps extensions are great for your arms as well, but with this exercise, you're also helping your biceps. What you want to do is sit down, keeping your head, your neck, and your spine straight. You'll need one of your weights for this one too, because you'll be lifting your arms over your head, so that your palms face inward, allowing you to clasp your fingers over it. Using just the muscles in your upper arms, you need to lower your weight down so it's behind your head, then hold it before going back up so your elbows are straight.

6. Arm Circles

This is another great exercise for slimming your arms, and it's super easy. Hold your arms straight out to either side of you – and make circles! Be a windmill! As a kid in gym class, you probably thought this was the dumbest exercise 2 Day Diet Japan Lingzhi Slimming Formula ever, but it's really helpful. Start out circling your arms to the front; begin with tiny circles, then work your way up to bigger ones. There are no real reps with this, so do it for 3-5 minutes, then reverse direction and repeat.
