The 5 Best Exercises to Tone Your Underarms


Do you refer to your underarms as “wingdings” or ” flab”? Thousands of women do, and you are not alone. We scoured the internet looking for the best and brightest in exercises capable of giving you flawless, toned arms. The exercises that require dumbbells can easily be substituted with water bottles. It is so easy, anyone can do it.

1. Dips-

An oldie but goodie. Sitting on a bench with your hands gripping the edge, slowly walk your feet forward about 24 inches. Keep your wrists straight and bend your elbows as you lower your body to just above the floor, or your biceps are parallel to the ground. Raise yourself back up, and do 12-15 repetitions.

2. Arm Circles-

This is a classic exercise that shows results. Standing with feet hip-length apart, raise your arms to shoulder height. Facing palms forward, move your arms in circles, being careful not to move your torso. make small circles for 1 minute, then move on to larger circles for another minute. Repeat 3 times.

3. Superman-

This exercise does wonders for the arms and legs. Lay on the floor, with arms stretched out in front of you. Lift your arms and legs off the ground, palms facing the floor. Hold for one count, then lower limbs back to the ground. Repeat 15 times.

4. L Pushup-

Almost everyone can do a regular pushup, but this comes with a twist. While in raised pushup position, lift one arm off the ground to shoulder height. Hold for one count and then lower. Repeat 15 times for each arm.

5. Curls-

With a straight posture and keeping elbows at your sides, hold a dumbbell or water bottle in each hand. Contract your biceps, bringing everything below the elbow up, and palms facing upwards. Do not let shoulders slouch forward. Lower arms and repeat 15 times.
