Belly fat and flabby arms are the biggest problem areas for women. You need to put a little effort and you’ll get the shaped arms you want. Try our tips for getting rid of your flabby arms.
Remember that that area is really hard to tone, so don’t lose hope. With the right routine and you’ll achieve amazing results.
1. Don’t Skip Cardio
Do cardio 3-6 days a week. You must do exercises that burn overall body fat. Start by 30 minutes a day and then increase the intensity of your workouts. Any type of cardio is better than none at all. Jumping rope, swimming and running are the biggest calorie burners.
2. Reduce Calorie Intake
You must reduce your calorie intake but don’t starve yourself. The best way is to lose 1 to 2 pounds per week, this way you’ll keep the weight off. Start consuming more healthy foods, such as fiber-rich whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy products. If you reduce your overall body fat and you increase muscle mass, your flabby arms will turn into toned muscles.
3. Weight Lifting
Combine your cardio with some weight lifting. Weight lifting will help you get rid of your flabby arms and get more toned ones. Here are a few simple exercises you can do at home:
Lie on your back. Raise your arms above your chest. Your elbows should be slightly bent. Bend your elbows at 90 degree until the weights reach the floor. Lift your arms back to starting position. Do 15 repetitions.
Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees and your upper body forward (bent from the hips up). Keep your spine neutral and your hands straight under your shoulders. Bend your elbows back. Repeat this exercise 15 times.
-One Arm Push Up
Lie on your right side with your knees slightly bent. Put your right arm on your left shoulder. Then press your left palm into the floor and lift your upper body. Repeat 10 times, and switch sides.
