For many, the struggle is real. You want to wear that cute tank top or tee, but what about your arms? The part that jiggles and sags, and dances around like it has a mind of its own. You can hide it with long sleeves, you can disguise it with sweaters and shawls, but is that really how you want to spend your life? Hiding?
We didn’t think so.
The following 8 moves, designed by fitness expert Matt Perfetuo, are guaranteed to tone even the most stubborn arm flab! Have a look:
Put your knees on the floor and your hands directly under your shoulders. Then, contracting your abdomen and glutes, lower your body and keep your elbows close to your side. Return to the original position and repeat 10 times.
Stand with feet together and arms to your sides, then jump and spread your legs while bringing your hands up to touch overhead. Go back to the original position and repeat 25 times.
Use Your Soups
If you’ve got soup cans in your cupboard (or cans of anything, really), you’ve got exercise tools! Stand with arms stretched out all the way up, then bend your elbow at a 90-degree angle. To pull your arms back up again, squeeze your triceps. Repeat this 10 times.
Lay on a bench or floor and stretch your arms completely overhead while holding a bottle in each hand. Bend your elbows so that the forearm is parallel to the floor, and then slowly return your arms to the previous position. Lower your arms back to the elbow bent position and repeat 10 times.You Won't Believe It But THIS Could Be The Answer To Arm Flab Click To Tweet
Sit up straight and slightly extend your legs. Place your palms just outside your hips and grab the chair. Then, without moving your legs, bring your glutes forward off the chair. Try to place your elbows at a 90-degree angle slowly, and then push yourself back. Repeat this 10 times.
Come to a plank position with your arms leaning on a bed or another piece of furniture. Bend your arms at a 90-degree angle, then press back up to straighten. Repeat this around 10 times.
Lie on your left side with your knees slightly bent. Put your left hand on your right shoulder, and place your right hand on the floor. Use your right hand to push your torso up and then come back down. Repeat this 10 times on each side.
Get into a push-up position with your knees on the floor. Then, form a triangle with your palms directly under your chest (thumbs form the base and the tip of fingers the point). Keep your body in a straight line and then slowly lower yourself almost to the ground. Come back up and repeat 10 times.
