    Get a pair of dumbells and start doing different arm exersizes with 12 to 15 reps. Type this phrase into Google and you will get some good ideas for exercise routines:

    Isometric exercises are really good too. One of the keys to having good success with them is to really focus on the muscle you are trying to firm and breath correctly - you should be able to find them on google as well. Also, dumbells are great but if you can't afford to run out and buy them right now you can use household items too - like laundry detergent bottles with handles, etc.

    Like said above, try 12-15 reps on exercises. All I do when I want to focus on a particular body part when working out, I do whatever motion will contract that muscle or muscle group, then try to mimic the motion it took to make that contraction, while using weight.

    If you don't have access to a gym, or equipment, youcan use household items like mentioned above, or you can use your bodyweight. Push ups, pull ups are great, time proven exercises. Also try some dips. You can use the edge of a bench or sofa to do these. Tricep kickbacks are also great for this.

    For toneing, you want to keep the reps high. Lower the reps and increase weight if you want to build muscle mass and increase strength.

    Hope this helps.

    Tennis/badminton/squash, rock climbing/bouldering. Or swimming. They make your arms nice and tone! And they are not as boring as reps. Aaaand you get to do them with someone else.
