No one wants to wear sleeveless shirts or dresses when you feel like a small child could swing on your arm. Having so much fat packed in that region of the body can be frustrating. The arm and back of the shoulder are parts of the body where fat accumulates easily. The good news is that there are workouts that get rid of arm fat and leave you with sexy and sleek arms to show off in no time! These workouts are simple and can be done at home; you only need your dumbbells.
One thing that you would love to learn is that shoulders and upper back tend to carry less fat than the rest of your body. So when the right arm exercises are done, this area gets a nearly instant makeover as said by Ramona Braganza, a celebrity trainer who has worked with stars such as Anne Harhawway and Jessica Alba. Braganza’s upper-body workout hits every major muscle and will help improve your posture, stabilize your shoulder joints and build strong, tone look you’re after.
The only equipment you would need for this workout is five-eight pound weights, you would need to perform 15 to 20 reps of each exercise and go from one to the next with little or no rest between. Do this 2-3 sets 2 times a week for maximum results and sexy toned arms.
Workout 1: Reverse fly
Grab a pair of dumbbells and stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees bent. Bend forward at the hips and let your arms hang straight down from your shoulders, facing your palms. Then raise both of your arms to the sides as you squeeze your shoulder blades together. Return to the start. And that makes one rep.
Workout 2: Biceps curl
Hold a pair of dumbbells at your sides, palms facing forward, and keep your back against chest up. Without moving your upper arms. Bend your elbows and curl the weights toward your shoulders. Slowly lower the weights back to the starting position, straightening your arms completely. And that’s one rep.
Workout 3: Lying triceps extension and dumbbell crossbar
The next and last workout is a combination of two exercises.
For the dumbbell cross jab you will need to stand with your feet a bit wider than hip width and knees slightly bent. Hold the dumbbells at chest height with elbows bent palms facing each other. Extend your left arm across your body until the weight is in line with your right shoulder. As you return to the start, repeat with the right arm.
As for the lying triceps extension, lie face-up on a bench and hold a pair of dumbbells above your head, arms straight and palms facing each other. Without moving your upper arms, bend your elbows to lower the dumbbells until they are either side of your head. Pause, then lift the weights back to the starting position.
