Exercise Guide To Tone Flabby Arms

Most people with flabby arms dread the spring and summer seasons. This is when everyone wears sleeveless shirts and bathing suits. 

If you have flabby arms you have three options:
  • Accept your situation and wear what you want.
  • Hide your flabby arms.
  • Do some exercises for flabby arms.
In this article we will look at how you can do some exercises for flabby arms.

Fat Reduction

Exercises for flabby arms will not have much effect if you have too much fat in your arms. If you want results then you will also have to work on reducing your body fat while you do your exercises for flabby arms. The easiest way to do this is to burn off more calories than you consume. Here are some things you can do to achieve this:

Cut back on high calorie foods.

  • Exercise at least three times a week.
  • Include weights in your program.
  • Do some cardio vascular exercises such as walking, running or swimming.
  • Eat lots of fruits, vegetables and whole grain foods.
If you do all of this on a regular basis you should easily be able to lose 1-2 pounds a week. However bear in mind that the more overweight you are the longer it will take you to get rid of those flabby arms.

Exercise Options

If you have flabby arms, your triceps are probably lacking muscle tone. Try to do exercises that strengthen your triceps.
All you really need is a set of dumbbells. The weight that you will need will vary from person to person. However, a good starting weight is five pounds. It does not matter whether you do these exercises at a gym or at home. However, it is important that you perform these exercises regularly. Some good exercises to perform include kickbacks and extensions. Perform at least 3 sets of 10 at least 3 times a week.

Another alternative to this is to use exercise machines at your local gym. Exercise machines are not as effective as free weights. However, you might find them to be a lot easier to use than free weights.

If you don't like weights, you can also try using your own body weight. Some good bodyweight exercises are pushups and pull-ups. However these may very difficult to start off with. This is because your body weight is likely to be too much for your arms when you begin. Other good options also include swimming or using rowing machines for your arms.

Don't Expect Overnight Results

If you follow my guidelines, you will achieve results. However, don't expect them to happen overnight. It will probably take a few months before you notice significant results. The secret here is not to give up or feel discouraged when you don't see results immediately.
