The best arm exercises always have a time sensitive mission with multiple benefits to your health and your transformation goals. So, today we’re going to tone the back of the arms, all while we reduce back pain.
That’s a crazy combination isn’t it? But I know how busy you are!
There really isn’t enough hours in the day to focus on pain relief, weight loss, toning, running, all while running after grand kids, your kids or running around doing errands!
Ugh! It’s exhausting just thinking about it.

To make life easier, I’ve found one of the best ways to cross-off the fitness “to-do” is to make it as quick as possible while it includes both the pain relief exercises your body is begging your for and the toning and strength component all in one.
So, for this week’s win, win workout, I thought I’d tackle back pain relief and a major hot spot you want to tone up (the back of the arms).
The Cobra (the back exercise we do in today’s workout video) may be a good exercise for the low back if you suffer from herniated disks, bulging disks, degenerative disks or low back joint pain.
This exercise creates a gentle and supported low back arch that gently massages disks into proper alignment. It also increases blood flow which brings nutrients to the low back and may provide back pain relief.
This same exercise is also a modified version of the triceps push ups for beginners.
Triceps push ups activate more muscle fibres in the back of the arm than other triceps exercises. This tones and tightens the back of the arm while increasing your arm strength.
So are you ready! Let’s get started!
For this workout, you’ll need 2 pillows or a small 7 inch pilates ball.
(AND CAUTION: If you suffer from back pain, make sure the cobra is right for your back pain, check with your physiotherapist or doctor before you give it a try)
Ok, it’s time! let’s get started!
