Postpartum Weight Loss- How to Tone Back of Arms

Posted Nov 12 2009 10:00pm

To Sara of Fit by Sara: “I’m 50 years old, I workout regularly but I can’t seem to get good definition and muscle tone on my upper arms.  What do you suggest I do to tone up the back of my arms?”

From Sara of Fit by Sara: “Take 3 things into account. 1. Your age 2. Your nutrition 3. Exercise.  As we age it’s more challenging to obtain muscle tone and a “cut look”.  So be sure to be the best you versus an image in a magazine.  Depending on how often and what you eat can determine how much body fat you have, and the more body fat we have the less you’ll be able to see muscle definition/tone.  So be sure to eat plenty of veggies, fruit and water, and consume “back of your fist size” portions of low-fat meats.  For exercise you want to do exercise that will target the back of your arms or “triceps”.  Yoga is excellent for targeting the upper arms and shoulders as well as toning the entire body.  You may also like to add tricep extensions with light weights (3-5 lbs) or use a tricep extension machine at the gym.  Work up to 3 sets of 10-15 reps 3 x per week.” - Sara Holliday
