Toned arms are something that every woman dreams about, and you're probably one of them. Maybe you have a problem-spot like the back of your arms, or maybe you just want better overall tone. You can easily spend hours every week working on your problem-spots without seeing any results. Though it may sound hard to believe, you can actually tone your arms by walking. This requires a little devotion and a change to your regular routine. If you want to tone your arms while walking, commit to the change and reach for some weights.
Things You'll Need
- Weighted Belt
- Ankle Weights
- Wrist Weights
Pump your arms as you walk, trying to mimic power walkers. This forces the unused arm muscles to participate in the workout.
Carry a set of dumbbells with you as you walk, preferably a 2 to 3 pound set. Even if you just carry the weights without moving your arms, it will add resistance to the walk.
Place a weight belt around your waist, but only use it during your walks. The weight belt helps you burn more calories, which can result in toned arms.
Use small ankle weights to help burn more calories during your walk. The ankle weights cause your legs to feel heavier, forcing your leg muscles to work harder. The more calories you burn, the better your body will look, including your arms.
Buy a set of wrist weights and use them when you walk. As you move your arms during the walk, the weights will cause the muscles to work. Before long you'll begin seeing improvements and better toned arms.
