The Madfit Lifestyle team have shared a video on their official YouTube channel on how to achieve toned arms with a few exercises which can be done from your home without using any gaming equipment’s.

Triceps dips

For this first workout you will need to get down into a crab-like position, insuring that your heels are the only part of your feet touching the floor.

You will then use your arms to lift your body and then dip your body, repeating that motion for a full hour.

Walk out knee pushups

Once the first exercise is done, you will then do a walk out on the floor using your arms into a plank position, and once your body is fully screeched out then you will kneel onto the floor to do a half pushup, before doing a walk out back into a sanding position.

Repeat this exercise for a full minute or for as long as you can.
