4 Pilates Exercises For Stronger Arms.
Pilates is a great way to build strength and tone the muscles throughout the body, including the arms. Here are four Pilates exercises that can help you build stronger arms:
Tricep dips: Sit on the edge of a chair or bench with your hands on the edge next to your hips. Walk your feet out a few steps and straighten your arms. Lower your body down toward the ground by bending your elbows, then press back up to the starting position. Repeat for 8-10 reps.
Arm circles: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and raise your arms out to the sides at shoulder height. Make small circles with your arms, keeping your shoulders relaxed and your core engaged. Repeat for 8-10 reps, then switch directions and repeat for another 8-10 reps.
Push-ups: Start in a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Lower your body down toward the ground by bending your elbows, keeping your core engaged and your hips in line with your shoulders. Push back up to the starting position. If a full push-up is too challenging, modify by dropping your knees to the ground. Repeat for 8-10 reps.
Bicep curls: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and hold a light weight (such as a dumbbell or water bottle) in each hand. Bend your elbows and curl the weights up toward your shoulders, keeping your shoulders relaxed and your core engaged. Lower the weights back down to the starting position. Repeat for 8-10 reps.
Incorporating these Pilates exercises into your workout routine can help you build strength and tone in your arms. Be sure to start with lighter weights and focus on maintaining proper form throughout each exercise to avoid injury.
