The dreaded bingo wing - one of the first things that gets a little too flabby for our liking. 


But we’re here to tell you that doesn't have to be the case.


We’ve put together a list of five exercises that will get those arms looking lean.


1. Swimming

Swimming is by far one of the best exercises you can do, as you are working every muscle in your body.


Whatever stroke you prefer, make sure your arms are always engaged.


For a more intense workout let your arms do all the work, and just pull your body through the water.



2. Wrist weights

If you’re a regular walker whether for leisure, exercise or just on your way to work, why not pop on some wrist weights to give your arms an added workout?


You’ll also be burning more calories overall - win!



3. Push-ups

We know those two words send shivers down your spine, but honestly, they work wonders for your arms.


If you struggle with the traditional push up, try dropping your knees to the ground to ease the pressure on your shoulders, or try wall press-offs instead.



4. Rowing

The rowing machine is a great way of toning those arms, and it’s as common as a treadmill these days.


They’re also becoming more affordable, so if you did want to make the investment, we guarantee you'll see a big difference.



5. Chair dips

We all know the drill here, basically a variation of the traditional push-up, but somehow chair dips don’t make us want to scream in agony.


We like to do these while watching our favourite soaps, the heartbreaking drama acts as a great distraction from the burning pain.


Just a suggestion.
