I am wondering if anyone can give me an idea on simple exercises to start working on toning my arms. I am very much a beginner at anything concerning strength training. Any help would be very appreciated!

Whenever I want to concentrate on a specific problem area. Usually my stomach... I always find new and helpful instructions on youtube. I've tried the 5 minute arms or Flabby arms: toning. I was very happy with those results. You can also use weights or bands but if you dont have those things... these simple workouts help! Good luck!

-Bench press - Works your triceps plus your chest.
-Dumbbell curls

Go light for 3 sets of 8. Over time your arms will get toned and youll lose weight in the process and gain lean muscle.

If you have dumbells, I would suggest dumbbell skull crushers (they aren't as scary as they sound). Works your triceps. Triceps make up 2/3 of your upper arms size and it is a more useful muscle in day to day life. If you don't have dumbbells try diamond pushups.

or search from your app store.

Walking in place
there is working out, and there is exercise. Walking is only one piece of a complete workout.

It does make sense, but it doesn't mean you should EAT those calories!
