5 Simple Exercises to Tighten Loose Arms

Loose skin in the upper area of the arms is a frequent cosmetic problem
in both men and women. In most of the cases, the skin becomes sagged due
to aging or not enough physical activity. Luckily, the skin can be
tightened with the help of certain exercises that focus on the triceps

When the triceps are formed, the sagging skin becomes aligned with the
arm muscles and disappears. Take a look at these 5 exercises meant for
tightening the arm skin:

Push ups

Begin in push-up position, on the toes and the body aligned with the
head, whereas the hands need to be under the shoulders. Next, bend the
elbows and lower them down close to the floor and then bend them
backwards at 90 degrees at the bottom position. Maintain the body
straight and when pressed back, the arms need to be entirely extended.

Triceps dips

Glide your buttock off the bench front while stretching out the legs in
front of the body. Your arms need to be straight. Hold the bench with
the hands apart at shoulder width. Afterwards, lower down your body and
bend the elbows at 90 degree-angle, while maintaining the back near the
bench. When your body touches the floor, straighten the arms and go back
to primary position. Remember to keep your shoulders down the entire

Bent over barbell roll

First, bend the knees slightly and then face the palms down and hold a
barbell. Next, bend at the waist and lean the body forward, but keep the
back straight. While keeping your head up, the back needs to be
parallel to the ground. The arms need to be perpendicular to the floor
and the body. The barbell needs to hang in front of you. Afterwards,
hold the body static and breathe out and raise the barbell. Hold the
weight with the forearms. Then, squeeze the back muscles at the top
contracted position and hold the position for a few seconds. Breathe in,
lower the barbell, and return to the primary position.

Triceps extension

Begin in a standing position while your feet are at shoulder-width
apart. Take a dumbbell in one hand and then raise it over your head and
fully extend both hands. Your palms need to face up. Next, you need to
lower the resistance in a semicircular motion behind the head until you
touch the biceps with the forearms. Hold the upper arms close to the
head and the elbows need to be perpendicular to the floor. The upper arm
needs to be static and you should move only the forearms. Breathe in
and then raise the dumbbell with the triceps and go back to the primary
position. Breathe out.

Triceps dumbbell kickback

Hold a dumbbell in both hands while you keep your back straight and the
palms facing the body. Next, bend your knees and the torso forward at
the waist. While keeping your head up, your torso needs to be parallel
to the floor. Point the forearms toward the floor at a 90-degree angle
with the upper arm. The upper arm needs to be static and then you need
to lift the weights with the triceps until your arms are entirely
extended. Pause for a couple of seconds and then breathe in and
gradually lower the dumbbells. Go back to the primary position.
