If you’re eating healthy, are maintaining a healthy body weight and are still struggling with excess arm jiggle, dumbbell exercises offer a solution. Resistance-training exercises for the triceps tone and firm the muscles on the backs of your upper arms, which can reduce the look of the flab.
These are the most effective exercises to get rid of the fat on the back and the underarm flab:
Push and touch
Begin with arms by your sides with palms facing forward. Raise your arms up to shoulder length, with palms to the ceiling. Pause and feel the burn. In one fluid motion, raise your arms over your head, palms facing behind you, and tap the ends of the weights together. Slowly return your arms to shoulder level, pause, and lower to starting position. Don’t move any other part of your body for maximum gain.
Bend- over circular row
Bending at the hips, place your right hand and right knee on a bench or chair. Holding a dumbbell in your left hand let that arm hang straight down with your palm facing in. Slowly pull the dumbbell up toward your chest, keeping your elbow and arm close by your side. Hold for a second, and then slowly lower. Repeat with your right arm.
Elbow Kiss exercise- This involves spreading out your arms on either side at the level of your shoulders, palms facing up. Then fold each arm at the elbow to make a ninety degrees angle upwards. Swing the hands while folded to the front so that they close in at the elbow with forearms touching on the sides. Lastly, return the arms to their initial position. Do sets of three, each 10 repetitions.
Crisscross reverse fly
The reverse fly is an exercise you can do with dumbbells to target the muscles in the upper back. During a reverse fly, you work the rhomboid muscles in your upper back and shoulder region. Strong upper back muscles help balance your shoulder strength and help protect your shoulder from injury.
Remember than being fit and beautiful demands discipline, consistency and hard work.
