The best way to firm up and tone your body is through conditioning and resistance training. You can do this using bodyweight and weights. If you don’t have a specific goal of increasing strength or muscular endurance, but just want to feel tighter and look better, then the specific rep (repetition) range that you should be lifting should be between 8-12 reps. Now that doesn’t mean you lift just any weight for that many reps.

In my new YouTube video below, I demonstrated some exercises that strengthen the wrists, fingers, knuckles, and grip, in addition to the muscles of the upper body. Allow a realistic time frame for working up to the more difficult exercises. If you have already worked through basic progressions for pushups and pullups, and have good flexibility in your wrists, you're ready for hand specializations.
