Working your arms will give you more than just sexy sculpted biceps: it will help you burn more calories, too!

The effect is two-fold. First, you’ll actively burn calories while you do the strength-building exercises. Then, you’ll passively burn more calories after you build more muscle tissue.

For stronger, leaner arms, try these classic exercises: Push-ups, starting with wall push-ups or knee push-ups if you can’t do a traditional one; Pull-ups; Bicep Curls; Tricep Kickbacks; and Arm Rows.

You can find illustrated guides online to walk you through these effective exercises. Do them every other day to firm up fast and burn extra calories.
