    Flabby arms can feel embarrassing and uncomfortable, especially in summer when it's nice to wear t-shirts and dresses. But don't worry, there are simple exercises you can do at home to tone those arms and reduce arm jiggle for good!

    We're talking here about toning up your triceps, those large muscles at the back of your arms that are used when straightening the arms out. Working on this area can really improve the look of your arms, making them appear more toned and firm.

    You can do these arm exercises with or without hand weights (also called dumbbells). Let's get started!

    1. Push Ups

    Flabby arms can feel embarrassing and uncomfortable, especially in summer when it's nice to wear t-shirts and dresses. But don't worry, there are simple exercises you can do at home to tone those arms and reduce arm jiggle for good!

    To do a push up, place your hands underneath your shoulders on the floor. With your legs outstretched and toes pointing down, move your body up and down off the floor with your arms and elbows close to your sides. If this is too difficult, you can do this with your knees bent instead. Repeat this movement around 10 to 15 times.

    2. One Arm Push Ups

    To do a one arm push up, lie on your left side with your knees slightly bent. Place your left arm on your right shoulder. Next, press your right palm into the floor until the arm is straight and lift up your lower body. This should be repeated 10 times for both sides.

    3. Tricep Dips

    Flabby arms can feel embarrassing and uncomfortable, especially in summer when it's nice to wear t-shirts and dresses. But don't worry, there are simple exercises you can do at home to tone those arms and reduce arm jiggle for good!

    For tricep dips you will need a stable chair. Stand in front of the chair, facing away from the seated area. Next put your hands behind you and onto the front of the chair, shoulder-width apart and your bottom in front of the chair.

    You should have your legs hip-width apart, bent on the floor and your back close to the chair. To perform the dip, straighten your arms out but keep the elbows slightly bent. Slowly bend your elbows, lowering your body down to the floor, creating an approximate 90 degree angle with your arms.

    This should create a tension in the tricep muscles. Then press the arms and push back up into the starting position. Repeat this around 10-15 times.

Extend both arms backwards with the palms facing each other and then return to the start position. You should feel a tension in the triceps with each movement.

    To do them standing, straighten the arms whilst the elbows are close to the ears. Bend the elbows at 90 degrees. Squeeze the triceps to straighten out the arms, and repeat 15 times.
