Top Tips for Reducing Arm Flab

Have you found yourself changing the way you hold your arms when someone is taking your picture so they'll look slimmer? Do you hate it when you catch yourself raising your arm to wave, only seeing that extra flap flapping in the wind?

If you want to get rid of that loose, flabby skinned arm, then you will need to take on two different efforts. This will involve fat burning and lean muscle building. This is the case even if you don't want to achieve a built look. You don't have to bulk up to create a fit looking arm with great tone and without the extra squishiness.

Use the following great tips to get the arms you want as fast and easily as possible:

Don't spot train to lose fat  

it's important to understand that spot training may help to tone a muscle, it won't do anything to shrink the fat in that specific area. Use these workouts to make sure that when you do burn the fat away, there's a toned arm underneath.

Use high intensity interval training (HIIT) to burn fat

instead of trying to spot train to burn fat, HIIT is a much more effective way to get the job done. There isn't any way to target fat burning on a specific part of your body. However, by using a highly efficient form of cardio, you can burn fat on your whole body including your arms.

Lift perfectly heavy weights  

lifting weights is one of the best ways to overcome flabby arms. If you're a woman who is afraid of bulking up, don't be. The female body doesn't contain enough testosterone to make that possible. Lift a weight that you can comfortably lift for between 8 and 15 reps. Lifting heavy will build lean muscle, not bulky size.

Give your daily calories a small cut 

try to reduce your daily calorie intake by 100 to 200. If you don't know how many calories you usually eat, try tracking for a week or two. Count every bite of everything you eat and every drop of everything you drink. After you create a kind of baseline for yourself, cut back by 100 or 200 calories. This small change won't be enough to leave you hungry but it will be enough to add up over time in being able to reduce the fat from your body – including your arms.
