5 Ways to Reduce Arm Fat


  Arm fat is one of the most unflattering thing a woman can have and, especially in the summer, is very difficult to be hidden. Of course, as all body fat, arm fat can disappear only by physical excercise. Here are 5 ways you can reduce arm fat with training:

  1. Skipping

Skipping is one of the best cardio workouts and it’s inexpensive, too. “Skipping rope affects arms muscles as you lift your body’s weight as well as move your arms in circular motion. This increases the activity in the arms.” says Gautham Kumar, a fitness expert.

  1. Stretching

You don’t have to stretch only when you’re working out. Gautama says, “Stretching tones the arm muscles and brings them back in shape. Do it in the office, post meeting or after finishing a report.”

  1. Rotate wrist

“Hold one to two pounds of dumbbells in each hand and stand up. The gap between your feet should be equal to your shoulder length. Extend both the hands forward and keep them firm. Now, swiftly rotate your wrist upward and inward as far as possible. This will help tone the arm muscles,” says Gatuham. This will affect your shoulders and lower arms and make them slimmer.

  1. Lift your body up

This one is a bit more difficult, especially for women who are not really strong. Hold a sturdy strong rod that can bear your body weight. Grasp it firmly and pull yourself up the floor. When you go up hold the position for a few seconds and let your arm muscles take all the strain. Do a set of 20 and after a two-minute break, repeat the set.

  1. Triceps with one arm

Sit on the floor and place your hands almost a foot behind your hips; your fingers should point towards the butt. Your legs and feet should be pressed together, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Keep your arm straight to raise your hips above the floor. Bend your left elbow only with one arm and lower your butt as close to the floor as possible without actually touching it. Repeat it with right elbow.

Don’t forget to combine the training with a heathy diet involving as much water as possible and the results will come soon!
