This Lazy Girl Arm Workout will help you get toned arms without a lot of effort so you can get toned arms even when you’re feeling lazy. I’ve gone for periods of time and I feel addicted to exercise. It’s no prob-Bob.
I put on the yoga pants and sneakers. I grab my water and keys. I workout. I do my thing. I sweat. I feel accomplished and glad I get to check it off of my to-do list and I get on with my day feeling awesome.
Then some days I want NOTHING to do with workouts. Usually, it’s because I’m in pain because my back and knee injuries are flaring up. Sometimes I feel unmotivated, lazy or just straight up don’t feel like working out.
GET TIGHT TONED ARMS THE LAZY GIRL WAY
I know should exercise… Heck, I’m a personal trainer and fitness coach for crying out loud.
And as a coach EVERY SINGLE PERSON I’ve ever worked with feels the exact same way. If you do, too… girlfriend, you’re in the right place.
That’s exactly why I created my lazy girl workout routines. They’re perfect for the days when you know you need to workout, but don’t feel like it or you’re struggling with motivation.
Today I’m sharing an easy, yet effective Lazy Girl Arm Workout. This workout is great for days you’re feeling lazy but want to tighten and tone your arms. This is one of several lazy girl workouts, the others are linked for you below… keep reading 😉
LAZY GIRL ARM WORKOUT
When it comes to training the arms it’s best to use different exercises that use multidirectional movements. When you strategically combine the right kinds of movements into one workout, you can train all of the muscles in the arms in one session.
When you do all of the muscle fibers suck in tight like a corset. HINT: That’s what this arm workout does and why it’s so awesome!
The arm exercises in this lazy girl workout routine help boost metabolism and energy so you can lose weight and feel great.
The best thing about this workout you can do the entire routine laying down on your back! You can do this from bed if you want! If you don’t like exercise (or flabby arms) you’re going to love this lazy girl arm workout.
See me demo the exercises for you in this video below.

Lazy Arm Exercises Instructions
Lazy Chest Fly
Lie on your back with a dumbbell in each hand. Lift your arms straight up over your chest, with a slight bend in your elbows. This is your start position. Keeping a slight bend in your elbows lower your arms out to the side in a wide arc until your hands are a few inches above the floor. Pause then return your arms back to the start position, to complete one rep.
Lazy Chest Press
Lie on your back with a dumbbell in each hand with your elbows out and knuckles up. This is your start position. Exhale as you push the dumbbells up, all the way. Hold for a second and then inhale and slowly lower the weight back down to the start position to complete one rep.
Lie on your back. Extend your arms straight up while holding dumbbells tightly. This will be your start position. Inhale and lower the weight down until it’s just above your face. Exhale and lift the weight back up to the starting position. Contract the triceps hard at the top of the movement for a second to complete one rep.
Lie down on your back with your feet firmly placed on the floor. Hold your dumbbells together and lift them up over your chest. Inhale and slowly lower the weights back and down until your arms are by your ears. Without letting the weights touch the floor, exhale and slowly lift the weights back up to the starting position to complete one rep.
Laying Side Curls
Lie on your back while holding a pair of dumbbells out by your sides with your wrists facing up. This is your start position. Exhale and curl the dumbbells up towards your chest as far as you can without touching your chest. Inhale and slowly lower the weight back down to the start position to complete one rep.
Lazy Around the Worlds
Lie on your back with dumbbells in each hand up overhead with palms facing up. This is your start position. Exhale and lift your arms up, overhead, then down until they’re about an inch above the floor. Inhale as you return the weights back up to the start position to complete one rep.
For the best results, I recommend doing this arm workout one time a week along with my other lazy girl workouts (linked below.)
