The Best Arm-Strengthening Exercises After Age 40

1. Bicep Curls

Bicep curls are a fundamental part of any effective arm workout. They maintain your forearms and biceps healthy. To prevent acquiring any mobility constraints, be sure to use your entire range of motion.

2. Triceps Rope Pushdowns

Having strong arms largely depends on having powerful triceps. When pushing, throwing, or reaching overhead, the triceps are what cause the elbow to extend. Pushdowns using a tricep rope are a terrific and risk-free approach to develop stronger triceps.

3. Bicep Hammer Curls

Hammer curls apply a different angle of pressure to your biceps than traditional bicep curls. For this workout, you'll need dumbbells held with the thumbs pointed up and in a neutral position.


4. Tricep Skull Crushers

In contrast to the tricep rope pushdown, tricep skull crushers train your triceps while your shoulders are in flexion. This makes sure that every part of the triceps muscle is worked during your arm workout. For these, you can use an EZ-curl bar; a dumbbell or regular barbell also works.

5. Wrist Curls

Wrist curls conclude these arm-strengthening exercises. Wrist curls work your forearms, which arm routines often neglect. Reverse or normal wrist curls work. Do both. Dumbbell reverse wrist curls are palm-down. Palm-up wrist curls are standard.
