Try adding these moves to your workout to strengthen and tone your arms.

What you'll need: A resistance band

Exercise Reps
Bicep curls 15
Lateral raises 10-15
Tricep kickbacks 15 on each side


1. Bicep curls


Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees slightly bent. Hold the resistance band near each end, with the band under your feet. Arms should be by your sides, slightly bent. Keep your elbows by your sides and curl your hands towards your shoulders. Squeeze at the top, then slowly lower to the start position. Do 15 reps.

2. Lateral raises


Stand with arms by your sides, holding the resistance band with a slight tension. Slowly bring your arms out to the side until they reach about shoulder height, hold and squeeze for a second, then slowly lower to just out from your sides. Do 10-15 reps.


3. Triceps kickback


Start with your right foot forward in a slightly split stance, hips bent, with the band under your right foot and in your right hand. Bring your right elbow up behind you to make your upper arm is parallel to the ground, with a slight tension in the band. Slowly straighten your right arm back until it is straight, hold and squeeze for a second, then return to start position. Do 15 reps, then swap sides and repeat.
