There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to workouts, one of which is that you can target one part of the body to look slimmer. However, for that toned and taut look in any part of your body, you will need to lose fat from the entire body. This can be achieved with proper nutrition, workouts and adequate rest.

That being said, there are numerous exercises that can be performed as a part of your everyday workout that specifically targets the arms, by fitness coach Utsav Agarwal, Fittr.

Biceps curls with bands

The most obvious exercise for growing your biceps, this one will train both heads of the biceps.

Steps

1. Keep the band underneath your feet.
2. Hold the ends of the band and lift in such a way that palms face forward and your arms are by your side.

Pro Tip: Do not swing your arm while doing the exercise and try to keep your body upright for the entire movement.

Hammer Curl with Dumbbells

This exercise will not only target biceps but your forearms also.

Here’s what I’ve learned about MOTIVATION… . . . Motivation is not the best way to drive yourself toward your goals. Yes, motivation is great & it’s easy to push for your dreams & your goals when you are motivated, but it won’t be around forever. Motivation does not stick around when times get tough, when set backs occur, when everything in life seems to be going wrong and against what you want- motivation is not going to be there for you. You will start to lose motivation. It will fade away & you will no longer have that drive that you did when you first started out on your journey. What will drive you through everything, is discipline. Discipline is what will drive you to do something that has to be done, whether or not you want to do it at the moment. Discipline takes time to learn, & takes time to master. You won’t have it unless you are honest with yourself – brutally honest. You won’t have it if you don’t truly want it. It will be hard, it will be uncomfortable but it is what will drive you to the end. The times lately have been weird and tough. My motivation has ironically decreased tremendously during these times, and it may have for many of you as well. It is my discipline & will to succeed that has kept driving me through all of this. However, I will admit, it is always easier when you have someone in your corner helping you build up the discipline needed to get through the slumps when motivation is gone, If you are someone that is struggling with motivation and having a hard time establishing discipline to make it through, reach out for help & guidance.

Steps:

1. Hold the dumbbell in a neutral position, with the palm facing your body and then lift the dumbbell just above a parallel position.
2. Then, return to the start position and in this entire movement, elbows should be lined with shoulders.

Pro Tip: Don’t swing your arms while doing this exercise. Keep elbows firm, and complete the exercise with minimal movement in the body.

Push-ups generally target your chest and shoulder optimally, but this particular variation targets your triceps to some extent.
