Bicep curls will help strengthen your bicep muscle and would be a great exercise to start doing to help get rid of flabby arms. Bicep curls can be performed standing or seated — your choice. To start this exercise hold the weight in your hand at your side keeping your palm inward and your shoulders straight. Next, bend your elbow towards your shoulder while turning your palm and then return to the starting position. Repeat this exercise for 10 repetitions.
Keep in mind you can use dumbells to perform this exercise but you if you don’t have any on hand get creative. Cans of soup or a water bottle will work too! Another thing to note, if you perform this exercise standing you’ll be working on your balance simultaneously.
