I rock climb which provides awesome muscle definition.  However, I know that that’s not a feasible option for most people.  So I’d suggest the 100 push ups.  I’m also working on this, and adapting it to a 100 pull ups routine too.  I use a wood grips board, but the iron gym works just fine.

you can always do wall push-ups which are super easy but effective in quantity and easy to do while watching tV or hanging out without floor space.

I really want Michelle Obama arms so I’ve been trying different arm workouts too. Do you remember those evil little arm circles from gym class? Do those but with weights, it gets all your small muscles working together. I used to have a trainer and she told me it’s better to use free weights to get all your muscles working together and harder rather than machines which isolate muscles.

do you have access to a weight machine? i’ve been doing something where you push a bar down and have started to notice a bit of a difference in the backs of my arms (this is where i have problems). also, increase the weight–8-10lbs is not very much..i dont know what it’s called, but i sit and “pull” 50-60 lbs towards me for a few sets. for this, i’ve noticed some change in the front of my arms and forearms.

 

good luck! my arms are my trouble spot too..

Definitely try the 100 push-ups.  I have been working out every day for about 10 years but have never had any luck getting any definition in my arms until January when I started doing 100 push-ups every other day.  When I went gown shopping a few months later and tried on strapless dresses I was amazed to see how good my arms looked as a result of the push-ups.  Dips are also very helpful.  Good luck!

Pushups are good, also tricep dips are good for the backs of your arms.

I love the good ol’ plank pose. If you have good form, it’s a great workout for your arms, chest, back and abs. And you can do it in your living room while watching TV!

I have bad wrists, so I usually do the modification where I’m on my forearms. But to really punch up the arm aspect, do the full-extension version.

Crud – picture didn’t work.

And to add on even more – move from plank to side plank, back and forth, pausing for a couple counts before switching each time.

It’s KILLER!

Oh the plank is so awesome!  It seems fine at first and you are dying at the end!
