    okay, I'm sticking to plan most of the time and have lost over 3 stone so far;) but I need to get toning!!!!
    I walk every day for up to an hour and have just started using my treadmill this week (as not at work). I've also started sit ups to work on my tum.
    BUT really need to attack those bingo wings, any good tips guys???

    Hey there!

    Triceps are possibly one of the trickiest areas to tone on the body, but once they are toned they look damn good!

    If you have some hand weights use them to do tricep kickbacks, if not some bottles of water will do. You can also do tricpe pull over and 'skull crushers' using weights.

    You can also use a chair to do tricep dips and if you are brave do some tricep push ups.

    :)

    As a side note, I hear the Palmers Cocoa Butter (Firming) is really good for helping tighten up the skin! It's about a fiver from Boots. I bought some today as my arms are desperate!

    Yeah I agree with Stacey - moisturise too! It'll help the skin stay all kinds of nice. I get the OH to do it for me - massage and moisturising in one. Result! ; )

    Sorry mate, im rambling on with technicalities here!

    Kickbacks - find a steady surface where you can bend one knee onto and steady yourself with the opposite leg. If using left knee hold weight in right hand and use left hand to hold yourself up. Pull your right elbow up so it is inline with your shoulder on a 45 degree angle and push your forearm back. Do 3 sets of 20 on each arm (more or less depending on how comfortable you are)

    Pull overs - stand tall with your weight in both hands and raise your arms up above your head. Keep your elbows close to your head and push your forearms back so the weight comes down past your neck and push back up to the starting position. Do 3 sets of 20 or more/less.

    Skull Crushers - Using a barbell (or other long weighted object if your not in a gym) lie on a bench or step with your hands close together on the bar and push the weight up. Bring your forearms down towards your forehead and then push back to starting position. 3 sets of 20 again or more/less.

    Hope this makes sense :)

    Not much to add to the fabulous advice given already - infact everything I was going to say.

    One thing I can add is if you get two chairs or something similar and sit between them, then putting one arm on each chair push yourself up - don't use your legs though, let them go all floppy so you can't use them. If you find this hard to start with get a stack of magazines or something similar so you only go up and down a few inches and then lower the stack as you get stronger.

    Just bare in mind triceps are quite a small muscles and can't withstand quite as much as say your biceps.

    Happy toning!

    Probably not a lot of help at all BUT I'm helping at a kiddies holiday club and they have a fantastic game there which exercises the arm muscles - unfortunately I can't remember what it's called - helpful eh?

    Basically it is two ropes with a handle at each end of both of them. The ropes pass through a ball. What happens is someone at one end opens their arms and therefore the ropes which push the ball too the other end. That person then opens their arms and therefore ropes which pushes the ball back. It has been brilliant for my arms.

    I also found that breast stroke swimming toned up my bingo wings. As for using any weights, if you dont have any, use 2 tins of beans or something, they work just as well!
