Un-jiggle those arms!

Arms. They jiggle. It happens. If you want to firm them up a bit more and look more svelte in your bikini, here are some exercises that'll tone you up.

Bicep curls

It’s not a big surprise that the basic curl is on here: this move works! You'll need weights so start with something in the 3-5lb range. Standing with feet shoulder-width apart and wrists facing outwards, slowly curl your arm upwards letting your bicep do the work. Your elbow should remain by your side and there should be no swinging. Swinging creates momentum that cheats your arm out of a good workout. Slowly lower your arm back down and do the same move with the other arm. You can curl with both arms are the same time if you like. Do about 8-12 reps and complete 2-3 sets.

Tricep kickbacks

To do a tricep kickback, start with the weight in your right hand. If you have a flat bench, place your right knee and left hand on the bench and keep your back flat. With your elbow tucked into your side and arm at a 90 degree angle with palm facing inward, raise the dumbbell straight back until your arm is almost straight. Lower your arm slowly back to the start position to complete one rep. The work should be done in the elbow and the shoulder shouldn't be moving. Do 8-12 reps and 2-3 sets, then switch sides.

Lateral Raise

To start, stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Bend slightly at the knees and keep your abs engaged. Weights should be in both hands with palms facing each other. With elbows slightly bent, raise your arms straight out to the sides and up to shoulder height. Hold then slowly lower back down to the start position. Repeat for 12 reps.
