What is the best exercise for your arms?
I do dips off the front of a chair and aim for 5 times 10 reps. It get rid of my bingo wings and really makes me feel the muscle working the next day. Also, when you've done each rep do a tricep stretch, which means, reaching behind your head and inbetween your shoulder blades so that your elbow is in the air and holding your elbow with your other hand for ten seconds at least. Was that explained ok?

Curls are good too. If you're a girl don't go for big weights - I use 2lbs - and do more reps eg. 10 - 15 and that 5 times. I sit on a chair gripping a cushion inbetween my knees, which works my thighs and abs and keeps my posture in line and then lift my weight to my shoulder and down again.

Also, lying down on your back with your knees bent, a weight in each hand, reach to the top of your head and bring your arms up straight and then back down to just above your head. 10 - 15 reps times 5 and the same stretch from exercise 1.

If any of that is unclear I'll try to explain it in a different way.

Try looking at www.bodyforlife.com they have some exercises on video and pictures that are really good. I've just incorporated them into my everyday work out.

Cheers, Jess
