Simple Exercises to Get Rid of Arm Fat

Simple Exercises to Get Rid of Arm Fat

June 24, 2019

After the long winter and spring, you’re bound to notice that some of your body parts are carrying some extra weight.

If your arms seem a little flabby don’t fret because there are simple exercises to get rid of those unwanted fats and you don’t even have to leave the house (getting out of the house after a horrendous winter will take some time, we’re sure) because you can do these exercises in the comfort of your own living room.

Punch with dumbbells

One good way to get rid of arm fat is to do a little shadowboxing in your home, but with a twist: carry a dumbbell in each hand while you’re doing this. But don’t get carried away and lift a 5 pound dumbbell on each hand. Just carry something light (less than 3 pounds) and you’ll be able to tone the muscles in your arms in no time.

Do tricep push-ups

This kind of push-up is much more effective in toning the muscles in your arms.

To do this push-up you should lie face down on the floor and put your hands closer together than shoulder width. Your starting position is when you’re holding your torso up at arm’s length.

To begin, lower yourself while inhaling and stop right before your chest touches the floor. Push yourself back up to your starting position by using your triceps and pectoral muscles while exhaling. Do these steps according to the reps you want to make.

Forearm plank

If you already know planking then this one is familiar to you. Just place your forearms on the ground and they should be parallel to your body. Your elbows should be aligned and placed below your shoulders for balance.

Hold yourself up for a few minutes and do this exercise every day to tone your arm muscles and even your abs.

Overhead tricep extension

This one requires dumbbells and heavy ones if you feel that you’re strong enough. But please exercise caution because the equipment you’ll be using can fall on your head if you’re not careful.

In order to do this, get a pair of dumbbells, or one 5 to 10 pound dumbbell, and while standing lift it over your head (this will be your starting point).

Your elbows should be next to your ears and holding the dumbbell firmly lower them behind your head by bending your elbows back to 90 degrees.

Using your triceps bring the dumbbell back to its starting position by lifting it over your head.

Do these exercise regularly for a few reps and you’ll get rid of arm fat in no time.
