Yoga Asanas To Chiseled Arms

The triceps, biceps and deltoids are the most visual muscles in the arms. Biceps run along the front of the upper arms and help you bend your elbow; triceps run along the back of the upper arms and help extend the elbow; and deltoids, the outer layer of the upper arms, allow you to lift your arms to the side, front and back, as well as rotate them inward and outward. Focusing on poses that engage these “defining” muscles will help create a more chiseled, beach-ready look.

Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog)

Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limbed Staff Pose)

Chaturanga is like a push-up, and as such is a great arm strengthener. It is part of the Sun Salutation vinyasa sequence of poses. 

Marichyasana (Sage Twist)

Bakasana (Crow Pose)

Beginners: Try lifting one foot up at a time to get a feel for how far forward you need to bring yourself. Do not let your head drop. This will cause you to tip forward and lose balance.

Chakrasana (the Wheel)

Sirsasana (Headstand)

Even standing poses, such as Warrior II, where you are resisting the pull of gravity and reaching the arms outward, firm and straight, will help with sculpting. Hold each pose for 5 breaths.
