Arm toning exercises are generally not considered to be aerobic activity, however any exercise that increasesmass, will speed up the metabolic rate. Which means that your body will burn more calories even when you are resting or sleeping.
And arm workouts for women will involve a certain amount of building lean muscle, which will burn more calories and burn excess body fat from areas that you just don’t need it, let alone want it!
Ultimately your whole body will benefit from some. For women to mass in any part of their body, requires a lot of lifting really heavy weights.
It’s not going to happen – believe me!
So no need to get worried that you will start to look too masculine – we just arn’t built the same way as men, and we simply don’t have enough of thehormones anyway!
You could include in your arm workouts for women, the following exercises:
concentration curls, hammer curls or barbell curls.
press down with a rope, reverse push downs, dips, or some single arm reverse push downs.
Burn the Fat
In order to burn the extra fat from your body and tone and define your upper arms, try performing somein between your bicep and exercise routines.
In addition, you will need to add lots of lean protein, including lean been, skinless turkey and chicken, and some fish too. Complex carbs and healthy fats such as olive oil are also important – they are all required to help, which ultimately give that tone and definition to your upper arms.
