Ok, so I’ve been on a diet and I have exercised to lose some weight but even after doing all that, I still had one problem left – arm fat. I really wanted to get rid of it so I looked up some great exercises and now I am going to share them with you. Here are 4 great ways to lose arm fat fast.
Our arms tend to get weaker because we don’t do any heavy lifting. Let’s face it, unless you carry really heavy bags from a grocery store, or your baby around the house, you probably don’t lift anything heavy. As a result, your arm muscles are weak and it could be hard for you to do push-ups at first.
Start slowly, with beginner’s push-ups. You might have heard of those as push-ups for women, or knee pushups. Basically, instead of holding your weight on your hands and toes, you hold it on your hands and knees. Knee push-ups are easy to do and make a great starter exercise. Once your arms get stronger, you can gradually move to regular push-ups. Do open push-ups; with your arms placed wider than the width of your shoulders, or closed push-ups; with your arms placed close together.
Start exercising with some weights in order to lose arm fat. Don’t start with weights that are too heavy; they should be 2-3 pounds. You can get heavier weights when your arms get stronger. Basically anything you can do with weights is good for strengthening the muscles in your arms, so improvise as much as you want.
Best exercise for leaner arms is to take the weights in your hands, put your arms down in a normal position and then lift your arms to the side and in front of you at the height of your shoulders and to the back as high as you can. Note that your arms need to be completely straight; don’t bend your elbows and don’t bend over while you’re lifting your arms back.
Don’t let the name scare you, you are not really going to twist your arms and hurt yourself. This is one of those exercises that look so easy until you start doing them and see how effective they are.
Stand up straight and spread your arms to the sides like you are going to give someone a huge hug. Keep your arms completely straight and twist them to have your palms face the ceiling. Now, twist your arms around horizontal axis to have your palms face the ceeling once again. Repeat this exercise as many times as you can but bear in mind that this exercise can give you sore muscles the next day, so don’t push too hard.
This is another great way to lose arm fat fast. It’s called the scissors because movements resemble scissors being opened and closed. Stand up straight and stretch your arms straight in front of you at the height of your shoulders. Keep them straight and firm the whole time. Stretch them to the side and bring them back in front of you to have your right arm overlap your left. Stretch them out again and bring them back to have your left arm overlap your right. Repeat at least 20 times.
See, it’s not that hard, once someone gives you the right advice and right exercises. If you manage to do these exercises for at least 10-15 minutes every day, you will notice the change very fast.
THE PROBLEM is that it’s actually not possible to get rid of arm fat just by itself. You can make your arms stronger by building some muscle, but you first need to burn the fat and get your arms toned! It’s well know that you can’t target fat loss at a certain body part like your arms, instead, you need to lose fat in general and then you’ll also lose arm fat. I highly recommend you check out this breakthrough video from the creator of the Fat Loss Factor, the bestselling guide on burning fat.
