For this exercise you can use a 2 liter water bottle or a pair of dumbbells. Just try not to choose something that is breakable or valuable. Lifting is one of the most effective, fat-reducing exercises for toned arms.
If you have chosen a bottle, hold it with both of your hands and lift it over your head. Make sure that your arms are straight. Now lower the weight by taking it behind your back and reach the bottle as low as you can. Then again bring the bottle up above your head. The trick here is to move your arms slower, the slower you move, the more toned your arms will get. To make sure that you are doing it correctly keep your upper arms close to your ears. Do 2 sets of 20 reps. After the first set, take a rest of one minute. Find time to do this exercise three times a week, then start to gradually increase the reps and the weight, but make sure that you don’t hurt yourself. Increasing the reps or weight will help you tone your triceps, effectively.
Chair dips with your body weight are irreplaceable exercise for losing fat and building up your triceps. You only need a chair or a bed. If you choose bed, it should be little higher to the ground.
As you sit upright on the edge of the chair, place your hands on the chair next to your hips. Move three to four steps away from the furniture. Bend your knees with your feet flat on the floor. Slide your hips off the chair, using the weight of your body. Perform the dip by bending your elbows to lower yourself and then straighten your arms to return to the starting position. The aim is to touch the floor. Chair dips also tone the back muscles. You need to do 2 sets of 20 reps every day.
