Many women are complaining about flabby arms and this problem occurs because women tend to store more fat in their upper arms than men due to hormones. This can be seen greatly in old women because as we age our skin tends to lose its elasticity so it stretches and tends to sag.
Flabby arms can prevent you from wearing exact cloth because of their embarrassing appearance, so you should get rid of those arms by a well-balanced diet and regular exercise routine.
The balanced diet will help in reducing excess body fat and the toning exercises will firm and define your arms. Shown below are some of the most effective exercises that will help you get rid of your flabby arms.
1. Push-ups: The pushup is a basic exercise that many people are doing it because of its efficiency. Although it is a primary chest exercise, it also targets the triceps muscle in your arms. To do the basic push-up, place your hands palms-down on the floor, approximately a shoulder width apart. Keep your feet together and support your weight on your hands and toes. Lower yourself until your chest is almost touching the floor. Inhale as you do this. Then slowly raise yourself back to the first position, exhaling as you do. Repeat this for some times.
2. Dips: Dips are a common exercise that strengthens the triceps and at the same time works on the pectorals and major shoulder muscles. This exercise can be done using a chair or bench. Sit up straight on the edge of the bench or chair, extending your legs in front of you. Place your palms on the edge of the seat. Slowly lower our body towards the floor, keeping your back straight ensuring that your elbows are at 90-degree angle. Then push your body back using only your triceps. Repeat.
3. Arm circles: Arm circles are an easy yet effective exercise that you can do it anywhere. This exercise is great for toning your triceps and biceps. And it also strengthens the back and shoulders. To do this exercise you need to stand with your feet about a shoulder-width apart and raise your arms to the shoulder level to your sides. Move your arms in small, circular motions but don’t move your wrists or elbows. Do about 20 circles, then change the direction and begin rotating your arms backwards.
