5. Pull Ups:

2. Raise your entire body upwards till your chin is above the horizontal bar level.

3. Now slowly lower down your body downwards. Repeat it as many times as you can.

4. You need to stay in this position as much as possible.

7. Downward Dog:

Downward dog is yet another sun salutation pose which tones the arms.

1. You need to form a reverse V shape as in the image. Put your feet and hands flat on the ground. Your spine should be straight following downwards with hips pressed back.

2. With the help of your hands, push your body weight towards your heels.

3. Stay in this position for some time or as much as you can.

8. Handstands and Headstands:

headstand

Both these are related to balancing your body. Upper arm strength is required to keep your body upside down and in perfect alignment. You may or may not require the help of a wall for this. Those who are quite new for this you’ll need a wall for support.

1. For headstand position, crouch down near a wall and clasp your hands with your elbows about shoulder width apart from each other.

2. You are going to position your head between your heads.

3. Lift both the legs at a time against the wall.

4. For headstand position, you are going to put hands on the floor with shoulder width apart from each other.

5. Lift both the legs together against the wall. Your elbows should be straight all the time.

6. Stay in headstand/ handstand position for few minutes and come back to the normal position by putting one leg down followed by the other.

Without using weights, if you do these exercises three times to four times a week with a healthy diet, you can achieve long and lean arms for sure. This will take time and commitment but these definitely work well.
