Flabby arms are a sure sign of excess percentage of fat in the body and less muscle development. Flabby arms are seen in the women as well as men which creates a bad impression to their personality. The main reason behind flabby arms is that the triceps muscle gets covered by fat and the arm becomes flabby, and that definition or that sharpness doesn’t come out. To get rid of flabby arms a lot of exercises, body-weight exercises could be practiced, but the most important factor is the reduction in the total body fat percentage. If one says that, a particular part will lose the fat, it’s obviously not possible the sharpness will only come with the reduction of fat percentage in the body. Arms are a combination of two muscles, i.e., TRICEPS AND BICEPS, where triceps is a bigger muscle which should be given more importance while working on your arms. Once the triceps become defined and clear the arms will get a boost and will lead to a better look and to obtain such good arms, one must reduce the fat from the upper arm, i.e., your triceps muscle.
1. DON’T EXPECT TARGETED WEIGHT LOSS
It’s difficult to target weight-loss to a specific area. Yes, that means all of those burn stomach fat fast adverts are not real. The bright side is that a little calorie deficit will guarantee that you slim down from all over the body.
2. CHECK YOUR BMI
Body mass index is an estimation that informs you whether you are in a healthy weight range or not. BMI tells about the total proportion of FAT, WATER LEVEL and different aspects of a body and it becomes necessary to know about the body type, structure and its composition to set targets.
3. REDUCE YOUR CALORIE CONSUMPTION
If you have checked your BMI and it shows that you do have some fat to lose and the best way is to cut down your per day calorie intake and stay away from bad fats and bad carbs. Patience is the name of the game even if you have a lot to lose you will reach there steadily. Bad eating habits are often the main reason for the excess of fat.
