Exercises to Get Rid of Flabby Arms

Most women's body is highly vulnerable to sagging because fat is deposited in the female body in three areas: the tummy, buttocks and yes, the back of the arms. Usually it happens at a fairly young age.

Exercises to Get Rid of Flabby Arms

Here are some flabby arms exercises for women and for all genders that will save you from embarrassment and will bring back your confidence up to the highest level.

Exercises to Get Rid of Flabby Arms

1. Diamond Pushups

First, before I tell you about diamond pushups, I'm just going to assume you realize that flabby arms are a result of being overweight in general. So you will need to work on your diet to reduce body fat since this will also have a big impact on how your arms look.

Now... diamond pushups.

Get in pushup position. For women, if you aren't really good at pushups, instead of putting your weight on your feet/toes, put your knees on the ground. Put your hands together and open a triangle of space between both thumbs and your pointer/index fingers.

This triangle is the diamond. Do as many pushups as you can. Rest for 45 seconds and repeat. Do a total of 4 sets 4-5 days a week. This takes less than 5 minutes, so don't come up with excuses about being busy. You don't even need to do all 4 sets 1 after another. You can spread them out throughout the day.

2. Jump Rope for 5 minutes a day

OK, this does 2 things. First, it burns off body fat from all over your body. This indirectly benefits your arms. Second, you have a sort of isometric tension with your arms as you hold the jump rope in position while you're doing it. This directly benefits your arms.

If you combine these 2 exercises to get rid of flabby arms and improve your diet a bit, your arms should get firmer and tighter within 3 weeks.

3. Triceps Dips Exercise

Triceps Dips Exercise

The dip is an extremely effective exercise for stressing the pushing muscle of the upper body, namely the shoulders, chest and triceps. The triceps dip is a variation of the traditional dip, where the torso remains upright throughout the exercise, with the upper arms tucked close to the body to maximise triceps recruitment and decrease the involvement of the chest. The dip recruits the triceps (brachii) via extension of the elbow. The triceps is a three headed muscle to the rear of the upper arm. Although the form of this dip variation reduces the chest involvement, the chest and shoulders will still assist during the movement, with complete isolation impossible.
