Whether you're looking to put on muscle, tone it up, or just have healthy joints to increase your quality of life, when it comes to your arms - there are an endless amount of exercises you can use to achieve your goal. We use our arms in a variety of ways throughout the day so it's important that we take care of them. These exercises will ensure that your arms stay strong and healthy for your years to come.
The arms are the upper limbs of your body. They are made up of a variety of different bones, muscles, tendons, and more that run through the upper arm, the forearm, the wrist, and the hand. Some popular muscle groups within the arm include the bicep, tricep, and forearm muscles.
Strengthening your arms obviously pays off if you're chasing aesthetics, but, more importantly, strong arms will benefit you in your day-to-day life. Need to carry all those grocery bags into the house in one trip? Strong arms will help! Since there are many different parts to the arm, these exercises may target separate parts of the arm. Incorporate a variety of these movements into your workout routine to ensure that you're getting the most bang for your buck.
