Adho Mukha Svanasana or Downward Facing Dog Pose:
This asana helps rotate the shoulders and tones the arms, Sarvesh wrote in his post.
Dolphin Cobra - C Pose:
"This asana stretches the arm muscles and helps build lean muscles," he wrote in the caption.
Purvottanasana or Upward Plank Pose:
This asana is effective for strengthening arms, as most of our body weight rests on them. It also builds stability in the wrist and shoulders.
