Default Flabby backs of arms

I'm starting to get some nice definition to my biceps, but the backs of my upper arms aren't keeping pace. What's a good exercise to target this area? Thanks.

Hi Lizzy. You might want to take a look at the following website for triceps exercises. Some can be done at home if you don't use the gym.

Overhead Tricep Extensions with a Dumbbell are fantastic for this as it will target the Long Head of the Tricep muscle which is at the back.

Here's a how to

Use a light weight to begin and do 4 sets of 12. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure if I want to tone the backs of my arms, I mean seriously - whenever I wave at anyone all that skin under there just gets to flapping back and forth and I quite enjoy the cooling breeze from it. Thanks for the website!

Thanks everyone! I now have new weapons in my arsenal, time to hunt some "chicken wings" to extinction.

Try tricept kickbacks!


1.Grab a dumbell in one hand and put the other hand and 1 knee on a flat bench
2.Point your elbow as high as you can towards the ceiling while leaving the dumbell hanging by your side
3.Slowly extend your arm until it is as straight as it will go (DO NOT change the position of your elbow!)
4.Pause for a second, then lower back to starting position
5.Repeat steps 3&4 for desired reps
6.IMPORTANT: Your upper arm and elbow should not move at all during the enter set. This is very important! If you cant do a complete set without moving your upper arm/elbow drop the weight off.
