Arm Exercises

Exercises with your arms as a contributor:

  • Lat Pull-down - Machine

    The movement simulates a pull-up. Since you are seated, it allows you to concentrate on your back and shoulders doing the work instead of also having to be concerned about your hips and legs.

  • Lat Pull-down - Resistance Tube

    This can be done with your feet in a variety of positions and is an exercise you can take anywhere-on the road or to the gym.

  • Plank - Stability Ball

    This works your transverse abdominals, back, and triceps and can help build strength to do push-ups.

  • Plank - Bodyweight

    The plank strengthens your upper body and your abdominals.

  • Pull-ups - Machine

    This is the same movement as a pull-up, but the weight stack helps support your bodyweight as you execute the pull-up. This allows you to train for an unassisted pull-up, and is a good way to strengthen the lats, traps, and biceps.

  • Pull-ups - Free Weight

    Pull-ups are one of the most challenging exercises you can do. If doing a full pull-up is too tough, lift your chin up to the top of the bar and hold for as long as you can in order to build your strength.

  • Push-ups - Bodyweight

    Push-ups are a great way to build upper body, arm, and abdominal strength.

  • Push-ups - Stability Ball

    Great for your chest, triceps, abs, and anterior deltoids.

  • Row - Free Weight

    When you work one arm at a time, you can concentrate on your form and on each arm independently. Keeping your spine neutral throughout the exercise works all of the muscles of your back and rear shoulders.

  • Row - Stability Ball

    Another good posture builder, this strengthens one arm at a time so that each arm has to pull its own weight, no pun intended.
