    loads but hard to explain!

    Your muscles that need to be exercised are yout triceps.

    Slow, controlled toning exercises are best. Holding small weights / tins of beans / bottles of water are best for resistance.



    Here is a link for these exercises:



    This is a video : I suggest # 3 & 5 are the best to get started with.

    Tesco sell small weights which would be good for these exercises if you are willing to invest - no more than £10 for 2 weights - don't use anything more than 3kg in each hand!

    Good luck!

    the old ones work the best I have found!



    exercises such as:

    tricep dips

    push ups (great for you chest, back and shoulders)

    bicep curl

    tricep extensions

    tricep kick-backs



    Try 3 sets of 8 of 3 of the above every other day (give your muscles time to repair) and I am sure you should see a difference!



    I should listen to my own advise and get doing some myself!!
