-Turn on the Snap toggle (press S key) and make sure the snap3D is selected.
-With a right click on the Snap Toggle button you can change the Snap Settings, make sure Vertex is ON, so that it will snap to the vertexes.
-With the Polygon sub object mode selected and with the axis gizmo limited to moving along the Z Axis (press F7 key), pick one of the lower vertexes in the "hand area" and drag it to the "armpit" vertex. This will keep the arm horizontal, which is easier to model.

Arms 3 (Fig.10)

-Change the view to Top and keep shaping the arm
-You can alternate to Orthographic view and Orbit around the area to understand the volume in 3D.
-You should define the arm shape and increase the volume of the hands. We will start modeling the boxing gloves in the same mesh as the body.
