There doesn’t seem to be an ounce of fat on them, the muscles are well defined, and in extreme cases, they look like someone who could bench press a car. Most people think that in order to get the toned look to their arms that they have to use tons of equipment and weights to make this happen.

You will find that adding in the movement makes this exercise all that more beneficial.
This is a classic arm exercise for a reason...it works! Get into push up position, making sure that your back is like a straight lower.

As you get stronger and more toned, you can increase the number of sets that you do.
