Arm Strengthening Exercises For Seniors

A guest blog post written by Jane Seymour, Actress and Crépe Erase® User.

It's Jane Seymour, and I am delighted to share with you some fabulous arm-strengthening exercises that are not only effective but also bring a touch of elegance to our daily routines. As we gracefully navigate the golden years, maintaining strength and flexibility becomes a key aspect of our overall well-being. Let's embark on this journey of embracing our strength with exercises that celebrate the beauty of movement.


Seated Bicep Curls

Let's start with an exercise that's as graceful as it is beneficial. Seated bicep curls are perfect for seniors as they engage the muscles in our arms without putting strain on our joints. Simply sit comfortably with a light pair of dumbbells in hand, palms facing forward. Slowly lift the weights towards your shoulders, then lower them back down. Feel the strength in your biceps and embrace the fluidity of the movement.

Tricep Dips

Say hello to toned triceps with this effective yet straightforward exercise. Find a sturdy chair and sit on the edge with your hands gripping the sides. Slide your bottom off the chair, keeping your back close to it, and lower your body down by bending your elbows. Push back up to the starting position, and voilà—your triceps are getting the attention they deserve. Remember, slow and controlled movements are the key to both strength and safety.


Wall Push-Ups

Let's reimagine the classic push-up with a senior-friendly twist. Stand facing a wall at arm's length, place your hands shoulder-width apart, and lean forward to touch the wall with your hands. Then, push back to the starting position. This modified push-up targets the chest, shoulders, and arms while allowing you to control the intensity based on your comfort level.

Arm Circles

Embrace the simplicity of arm circles for a delightful and effective exercise. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and extend your arms to the sides at shoulder height. Make small circles clockwise, then switch to counterclockwise. This exercise not only strengthens the shoulders and arms but also improves flexibility. It's like a dance for your upper body!

Resistance Band Exercises

Let's add a touch of resistance to our routine! Grab a resistance band and explore exercises like bicep curls, overhead presses, and lateral raises. These resistance band exercises provide a gentle yet effective way to strengthen the arms without straining your joints. Plus, they're portable and easy to incorporate into your daily routine.


Ladies and gentlemen, let's savor the joy of movement and celebrate the strength that resides within us. Arm-strengthening exercises for seniors are not just about physical well-being but also about embracing the beauty of every graceful moment. So, whether you're lifting light weights, dancing with resistance bands, or simply enjoying the fluidity of arm circles, remember that your strength is a work of art. Here's to graceful strength, vibrant health, and the joy of being beautifully strong at any age!
