3 Great Exercises for Arm Flab
Most people take long breaks from their gym and exercise routine. This can not only increase your body’s fat but can also negatively affect your stamina. Arm, hip, thigh and tummy fat increases due to such breaks. You can reduce the hip, thigh and tummy fat by running or jogging regularly but arm flab usually doesn’t go this way. Many people lift light or heavy weight to reduce their arm fat. When these people stop lifting weights, their arm fat increases. There are some easy exercises to reduce arm flab. Here are some of the best ones.
1. Modified Pushups
This exercise works on your arms, shoulders, back and abdomen. Lie down on your stomach, bend your knees and cross your ankles. Now bend your elbows slightly, keeping your palms on the floor. Make sure your neck and head are aligned. They should face the floor. Now push your body up slowly, making your elbows straight. Afterwards, bend the elbows and bring your body as low as possible. Make sure that you don’t go all the way down on the floor. You can do 5 to 6 repetitions of this exercise in one set and then gradually increase it to 20 repetitions and 3 to 4 sets a day.
2. Hand resistance curls
This exercise works only on your biceps. You can place one arm, sliding it down to your side. Afterwards, you can place the other hand on the first hand. Now start curling with one arm and simultaneously resist with the other one. You must complete the curl while using enough pressure. Once you have completed this cycle, you can do the same exercise with the other arm. This exercise develops your muscles in an effective way.
3. Diamond Pushups
This arm exercise works majorly on your triceps. It also works on your chest. Start with placing your hands on the ground. Join all your fingers, expand your thumbs and position your hands to make a diamond shape. Now you can start doing normal push-ups.
