Here is another yoga pose to tone arms. You can also tone arms in 30 days with these exercises.
Steps to do the asana:
Sit in a squatting position on a yoga mat and maintain equal distance between both the knees. Make sure you keep your feet flat on the mat while you squat. Place your palms in between your knees such that they are flat on the ground.
Now bend your torso forward while lifting both the legs up such that your body is balanced solely on the palms.
Hold the position for 20 seconds to a minute and bring your feet down on the grown back to the starting position. Make sure you are breathing normally while you are holding the pose.
