If you're feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable about the shape of your arms, specially so when the weather is warm and you want to wear dresses or sleeveless tops then you've come to the right place as we are going to show you how to get rid of arm fat.

The exercises we recommend can be done with or without the use of dumbbells (small bar that fits in the hand that has a weight at either end) depending on the exercise.

What Causes Flabby Arms?

The two main causes of arms looking like this are:

  • Age: As you become older the skin starts to lose its elasticity and thus begins to become saggy. Unfortunately there is not much that we ourselves can do about it.
  • Body fat: This is something we can tackle. If you lose weight, this will help reduce your body fat including the fat around your arms. In addition by doing resistance exercises it will help to tone the targeted muscle.

Exercises to Get Rid of Arm Fat

In order to make your arms look better and toned, we are going to recommend 10 exercises for you to perform.

We'll start by focusing on the triceps, which is the large muscle at the back of the top part of your arms which is worked when straightening your arms out. Doing exercises that target these muscles has a huge impact on the look of your arms and can really make them look firmer and more toned.
