Self-test: I have the best trick for ripped upper arms, and you don’t have to do (almost) anything for it
The famous “wave arms” are perfectly normal and nothing to train away. Nevertheless, many wish for a little more defined upper arms, where maybe even some triceps and biceps come to the fore. Like me. What I really don’t want to do, however, is hard arm training in the gym. The good news: It takes consistent training, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be in the gym or at sports courses. Not even with a home workout – at least not in the classic sense. As a beauty editor, I found a trick on how you can train your upper arms, and doing so without much effort and without having to overcome your weaker self.
Defined upper arms: It works with this simple trick
In most cases, sport takes a lot of effort, so I’m happy about any tricks I can do something good for my body without having to pull myself together or make an effort. Although I would like to have a little more defined upper arms, my level of suffering is really not high enough to do hard training sessions for it. By chance I came across a product that is supposed to train the upper arms without much effort and with a lot of effort. What is that supposed to be? Cuff weights for the wrists. If you think about it for a moment, it’s pretty logical actually. By wearing the cuffs in everyday life, which are available in different weights, the arms are also trained. Without you having to do anything for it or restrict yourself in any way.
So I integrated the weight cuffs into my everyday life
There are no exact instructions here, because I just wore the cuffs almost always – except at night, of course. Even if I was just sitting at the desk, because if you pay close attention, you move your hands and arms quite a lot even when typing on the keyboard. The purpose of the weight cuffs: Every single movement of the arms, no matter how small, is increased with the extra weight. Incidentally, you don’t have two kilos hanging from each arm here, but a few hundred grams are enough to train your arms and not be restricted in everyday life. I started very motivated with 500 grams per cuff, but realized relatively quickly that that was a bit too much and I had sore muscles in my upper arms and shoulders every evening. A good sign, but I didn’t want the ankle weights to limit me, and ideally I didn’t want to even notice them. At some point I settled down to 300 grams per wrist. If you want, you can increase the weight a little over time.
Legs and butt instead of triceps and biceps
Of course you can also simply put the weight cuffs around your ankles and train your butt muscles and legs. Here it is only important to know that the visible results usually take a little longer to appear, since the muscles in the buttocks, thighs and calves are significantly larger than in the arms and therefore require more time during training.
