Age-defining Arms?!

Here, personal trainer David Marshall gives his top three exercises for banishing those unwanted bingo wings. There’s no need even to go to the gym — you can do them in your home.

Half press-ups: These are like normal press-ups, but are done on your knees to make them easier.
Bicep curls using dumb-bells: Sit with a weight in each hand and, with your arms hanging straight down and your upper arms fixed by your sides, you curl the weights up towards your shoulders

Tricep chair dips: Sit on a chair and grasp the edges. Push yourself up and forwards. Then, with your knees bent at 90 degrees and your feet flat on the floor, lower your bottom towards the ground by bending your elbows, and then use your arms to push yourself back up

For each exercise, aim to do one set of between 25 and 30 repetitions to the point of muscular exhaustion. For the dumb-bell exercises, if you can’t do 25 repetitions with even a light weight, build up gradually. Whatever you can do today, do at least one more tomorrow.
