5 Best Arm Toning Exercises For Women Over 50

Having strong arms definitely has it's benefits! It's awesome to have toned arms that look great in your favorite summer top, but even more important is being able to do the things you love to do. Whether it's garden, picking up your grandchildren, feeding your animals, being able to pull yourself out of a chair or playing pickle ball with a friend.  Feeling strong goes way beyond how we look. While these exercises not only deal with "bat wings" as we age but they also will help prevent injuries. Doing exercises that strengthen our upper body is super important because lifting things is always going to be part of our everyday life.

Strength training also decreases our risk of osteoporosis and better than cardio, strengthen training will help you burn more fat so you can reach your weight loss goals faster too!

If having strong toned arms is your end goal, it's honestly very doable and easy to get started. All you need to build beautiful strong arms is  about 10-15 minutes 2-3 times per week. Here are 5 of my favorite arm toning exercises!

If you need to start out with body weight only that's okay. As you progress, start to incorporate dumbells or bands to work all of your arm muscles—think your delts (shoulders), biceps (fronts of your upper arms), and triceps (backs of your upper arms). The more consistently that you do these exercises the more progress you will make to reach your goals. If you are just getting started, begin with 5 reps of each and then increase the number of  reps as you get stronger.
