How to Get Sexy Arms

Q: My arms are a flabby mess. Do you have a simple exercise to tone them up?

A: Absolutely! I've got just the thing. When you have sculpted triceps you free yourself from having to wear those loose, long-sleeved shirts. Go ahead and fill your closet with short-sleeved shirts. Better yet — go sleeveless! With toned triceps you can wave to your fans all you want (no more upper-arm jiggle!).

Sound good? Then get started with tricep kickbacks, a terrific beginner exercise for sculpting the backs of your upper arms:

Tricep Kickbacks

Hold a dumbbell in each hand and stand with your feet hip-width apart with a slight bend to your knees.

Bend over at the waist so that your torso is slightly above parallel with the floor. Bend both elbows so that your upper arms are locked at your sides parallel to the floor.

Keeping your arms still, straighten your arms behind you until the end of the dumbbell is pointing down toward the floor with your palms facing in towards your body.

Hold for a beat and inhale, slowly lowering your arms back to the starting position, and repeat.

To do this properly, remember to keep your abs tight and your back flat.
