The 5-Minute Workout To Banish Flabby Arms

5 minutes a day is not a lot, right? We strongly encourage you to give our 5 minute flabby arm workout to banish your arms.

For the exercises below, you’ll need some hand weights. This makes the exercises more intense and effective. No dumbbells around the house? You can easily make your own by filling a bottle with water or sand.

You can do it every day because you don’t need any extra equipment, and it only takes 5 minutes. Each exercise lasts 60 seconds and the workout consists of 5 exercises. If so, you can start with these five exercises. They can be done at home: what more do you need?

1- Lateral raises

HIIT Workout

Finally, a spirited but very effective exercise. This will exercise your whole arm! Use your weights again with this exercise.

  1. Hold a dumbbell in each hand.
  2. Start with your arms next to your body.
  3. Raise your arms sideways until they are fully stretched in a straight line.
  4. Hold your arms for a few seconds and slowly bring them down again.
  5. Perform this exercise 15 repetitions of 3 sets.

2- Triceps dips

HIIT Workout

For this exercise, use a chair, bed or other solid surface to lean on.

  1. Put your arms at shoulder width on the edge of the chair or bed.
  2. Slowly sink down in a squat until your arms are bent and your buttocks are just above the ground.
  3. Push yourself up again and repeat this process over and over.
  4. Complete this exercise 15 repetitions of 3 sets.

3- Shoulder Press

HIIT Workout

This exercise is ideal to get rid of the fat on the inside of your upper arms. Use weights or your water bottles.

  1. Hold a dumbbell (or weight) in each hand.
  2. Start with your hands at shoulder height.
  3. Bring both arms above your head at the same time and then down again.
  4. Repeat this exercise 15 times of 3 sets.

4- Bicep curls

HIIT Workout

This exercise builds tighter biceps. Also use your weights in this exercise.

  1. Hold a dumbbell (or weight) in each hand.
  2. Start with your hands next to your body.
  3. Raise your forearms to the level of your chest and then lower them again.
  4. Do this exercise 15 repetitions of 3 sets.

5- Plyometric push-ups

HIIT Workout

A plyometric push-up is nothing more than a ‘normal’ push-up in which your hands briefly come off the ground. By pushing yourself upwards, you make a small “jump”.

  1. Start in a push-up position with your hands stretched out.
  2. Lower yourself down and push yourself up again.
  3. When you push yourself up, use some extra strength so that you make a small “jump”.
  4. Make sure your body stays straight all the time, so keep your bottom down.
  5. Do this exercise 10 repetitions of 3 sets.
