Happy birthday to Madonna, who turns 53 today! While we've been jamming to Madonna's music in workouts for years now, there's no doubt that this "Material Girl," is one of the fittest celebrities out there. Just check out those arms - so strong! Read on for three exercises that can help you to tone your arms to get them looking a little more like Madge's, no matter your age!

3 Exercises to Get Arms Like Madonna

1. Tricep dips on a ball. To get arms like Madonna, you have to really challenge your body. One way to do that is to add some instability to your workout. In this tricep dips on a ball move, you have to lower yourself up and down while keeping yourself balanced on the ball. Talk about challenging!

2. Biceps Scoop. Using a pair of dumbbells and a Pilates ball, this move targets the bicep, along with working your abs and inner thighs, too. Bonus!

3. Scorpion push-up. Made famous by Bob Harper, this push-up works your body in a variety of ways, working your chest, triceps, core and butt.

Add these exercises to your strength routine a few times a week, and you'll be sporting arms that look a little more like Madonna's in no time!
