Sometimes all that stops you from buying a new outfit or sporting a sleeveless shirt or dress is your excess arm fat. If a busy work schedule or an overly priced gym membership is stopping you from the perfectly toned arms that you wish for, then here are a few tips that you can follow right at your home, to lose all that flab that your hands sport.
Generally it is the triceps that accumulate the most fat.
To reduce excess fat storage in your body you first have to regulate the amount and kind of food that you intake.
A balanced diet is necessary to maintain a healthy and fit body. You will notice the difference in your body as soon as you start regulating the kind of food and beverages that you eat and drink. You have to ensure that your meals are generally home-made with rich nutrition content and less on fat.
Once you get used to your food habits. Then you can begin with simple exercises, using objects conveniently found at your home.
A skipping rope is easy to find at any home with kids. If you do not have one you can purchase it from a supermarket. Skipping is one of the most simplest and efficient cardio workouts that will help you tone your arms. While working both your legs and arm muscles, this vigorous activity burns all your arm fat quickly and efficiently. It involves the circular motion of you arms and they support all your body weight while you jump up and down.
A common mistake that people make while skipping is that they count the number of skips they do and judge their workout according to it. What you should really do is keep a tab on the amount of time that you skip instead.
Stretching is another way of working out your arm fat.
Keep stretching your arms throughout the day while you are at office or even at home. Stretching your arms keeps them toned and also has a calming effect on your body. Thus stretching helps you to keep healthy and calm. All you have to do is interlock your fingers and stretch your arms behind your head. This process will also definitely make you feel more refreshed and wake you up from your lethargy.
Another activity that you can do to reduce arm flab even at your home is wrist movements.
For this exercise you need to stand and hold your hands out. Then rotate your wrists slowly a few times first in the clock-wise direction and then in the anti-clockwise direction. Rotating your wrists tone down your shoulders and lower arms which usually have the highest fat content. Upward and downward movement of the wrists also helps you to lose the fat.
If you have an ottoman, sofa or table in the house that is sturdy enough to support your weight then you can use it to for this exercise. Rest your arms on the furniture that you choose, stretch your body out and lift it up and down. Keep doing this for some time until you feel your muscles tiring. You can also locate a sturdy rod that is attached at a height in the house and do pull up on it.
If the exercises and diet mentioned above is followed diligently and regularly by you then you will have fatless, toned arm muscles to flaunt whenever you like. These simple activities are easy to follow and can be done at your home without wasting any money on expensive gyms or health trainers.
