    Here is a version on ground, it might be a bit safer, but don't get me wrong, it isn't a bad exercise in itself, but you have to be careful.

    0:35 to 2:00 is about the bench dip.
    Just sayin': be careful and do it the right way...

    I did not knew that, but it explains why my shoulders do not like this exercise...

    If I can do Girl Power Week, you should be fine with workouts showing male illustrations. Exercising has no gender.

    ​​​​​​What I meant was Upperbod blast on Monday, trim and tone on Wednesday and Chest and Back on Friday, for example.

    No exercise is only for cardio or strength, it depends on the persons fitness. If you only can do a few repetitions, you built strength muscle and if you can do a lot you built endurance/cardio.

    kandy good tip with Express Tone!

    Haha, don't feel bad. I think you are looking fine. It's normal to have a bicep bulge even for those who never workout their biceps in particular, because every human has biceps, and we easily just use that muscle every day. Yours doesn't look bulky at all. Mine is "bulkier" than yours, and I haven't done bicep workouts for ages.

    The Chest and Back is not for male only, although it uses male illustrations. You can take a look at the new program Express Tone. You can use dumbbells of any weight for it.

    Yes, HellYeah back-to-back. Increase the dumbbell weight? I only have 8lbs for now. I cannot go outside.

    What do you mean alternating the 2 workouts thrice a week? I will do the Upperblast only on Monday then Trim and Tone only on Wednesday and then Upperblast only on Friday...something like that?

    And yes, I can do push ups and planking! Push up is also a cardio? I thought its for toning?

    Hey Ensee,
    you are at the beginning of your journey. "Beginner gainz" say hello and everything looks fine. Your triceps doesn't look disgusting at all. Just go on and you will see some tricep toning, too.

    Are you doing the two workouts back to back? Cause if you do, you also could increase the dumbbell weight, and alternating the two workouts three times a week.

    What about adding PushUps? In case you like it:

    Im doing Upperbody blast + Trim and Tone 🙂 Twice a week. Using 8lbs dumbbells.

    Is twice a week is good or do I need to do it thrice? 😁

    Im also doing cardio but just walking in place since we were under quarantine and I do not have much space to do other cardio exercises. ☹

    From my experience, if you always do bodyweight strength workouts, you will likely develop a lot more triceps than biceps because of things like push-up or tricep dips. It's much harder to make your biceps big without dumbbells or any equipments, unless you do pull-ups.

    Yeah you can't really get rid of your flabby arms without lowering your overall body fat. You will need to work on your diet, too, if you seriously want to kick those fat around your arms. Keep building muscles, too, because they help you burn fat. For females it's even harder to have very low fat around the triceps. I don't see many.

    Oh if what you actually care about is how it or your overall body looks but not really the arm fat itself, you can work on your muscle definition on other areas such as your forearms, shoulders, or even you torso, back, lats, etc., because the visual appearance of one body part can be affected by what's surrounding it. A bigger forearm can make your upperarm appear smaller. A wider back or lats can make your mid section appear narrower and your whole upper body will become slimmer, too.

    HaHa,... You should in no way, try to get rid of your triceps.


    Seriously, to get rid of your tricep surrounding mass ( aka fat) you have to lower your overall bodyfat.

    You can not reduce fat on a specific bodypart by doing exercises, but you can change the muscle /fat ratio. to make it more visible behind the curtain.

    The idea of changing the focus is good. Just try, if it works for you...
