I wished i find some excercise thay works to tone my arms. It seems they are becoming more like my grandmother’s everyday.  I do things that challenge my upper atm strength like tree pruning, because i have to.  I hurt my shoulder and elbow doing that over a month ago and i am still in pain.  Seems to be getter harder to do as i age.  What would you suggest? I am 56 and have a few health issues.
