Has anyone found anything that helps tighten up the old bat wings??? Have been swimming 3-4ks every week but still all of a wobble 😬

Aqua fit? Wear 1kg wrist weights while swimming.

Alternatively I scrubbed some decking last week, killed my arms.

Rowing is good too.

Do you have any weights?

If not then triceps dips (as already suggested) but also push ups (on counter top, knees or on feet) with narrow, standard and wide hands will all make a difference if done regularly.

(Sorry if this is a silly question!)

Have you looked on youtube? I always scroll down to the comments on any exercise videos to see if people are saying it works or not.

Just like you do it on the floor, but standing up! Stand a few feet away, hands on the edge, and lean forward into it.

I've got an old Davina McCall exercise DVD. It's split into 15 minute sections. Cardio, arms, legs, stomach.

The arms section is very good.
