Do you have jiggly, wiggly upper arms?
Your triceps are a likely culprit.
Triceps are often forgotten during weight training and, as a result, these muscles tend to atrophy, which basically means that they lose their strength and tone. Muscle atrophy, as well as excess body fat, contributes to the jiggly, wiggly appearance that can often be seen on the backs of the upper arms.
In order to build strength and maintain tone in your triceps, here are three exercises that should be staples in your weight training routine (click the links to see a full description and image for each exercise).
For optimal results, you should perform 2-4 sets of 10-16 repetitions of these exercises at least two days a week. Use a light to heavy weight progression when performing each exercise. In other words, increase the amount of weight you lift during each set with a goal of fatiguing your muscles within the allotted number of repetitions.

Before starting an exercise training program you should first make sure that exercise is safe for you. If you are under the age of 55 years and generally in good health, it is probably safe for you to exercise. However, if you are over 55 years of age and/or have any health problems, be sure to consult with your physician before starting an exercise training program.
