BEST ARM EXERCISES WITHOUT GYM OR EQUIPMENT

by Thera Now Physical therapy home exercise software

Being in the gym gives us access to a lot of equipment like dumbbells, barbells etc. to perform our daily workout. But when we are traveling or do not have access to the gym, or are too busy to go all the way to get our daily dose of exercises at home, we tend to miss out on our regime. We have come to think that workout can be done only when we have access to the gym equipment. But that is not quite true. We can still do a lot of good exercises without all those fancy equipment.

For example, when we are doing as a resistive force. However, it’s very important to learn the correct way of doing these exercises to avoid any kind of injury. If done in a proper way, these exercises can be performed from anywhere, without the use of a single equipment. Let us now see a few exercises that can prove excellent for the arms.

  • Bend one arm and bring your elbow to floor then do the same with other arm.
  • Come back to the starting position and repeat it 20 times.
