Exercises for Arm Flab: Exercises You Can Do at Home

You wake up early in the morning to prepare your family’s food or your kids’ things before they go to school.  Then you take a quick shower and rush to the office for another stressful battle with the paperwork and stuff.  You wish it ends there, but it doesn’t.  You rush back home to get dinner prepared.  When you get the chance, you stand in front of the mirror and take a quick glance at yourself.  You frown and you raise your arms to check on what looks like gray hair growing on your head.  You shriek when you get distracted not by your gray hair but because of that thing that wiggles and jiggles on your arms.  You have got to be kidding me.  How do you take care of all of these plus your newfound flabby arms? 

Stop.  Did you just picture yourself in that same scenario?  I can totally understand you.  Women these days can conquer the world, but sometimes that very feat takes a toll on their physical appearance.  So if you seem to have it all under control until you see that horrible flab, don’t give up.  Not just yet.  There are a lot of remedies out there that can totally get rid of that darn fat.  And if time or money is an issue, I got you some amazing home exercises for your hideous arm flab.  Are you ready?

Lift weights

Weight lifting is great exercise for arm flab.  You don’t need dumbbells if you don’t have them.  Look around your house and choose any item that you can use as a weight.  Try a 2-liter bottle of juice from your fridge if you have any.  Holding it with both hands, lift the weight over your head and lower it behind your back.  You can reach as low as you can as long as you don’t hurt yourself.  Remember to do it slowly to avoid injuries.  You also need to practice proper breathing to get a maximum result.  Slowly bring the weight back to your front and then repeat the steps.  You can do this exercise for arm flab while standing or sitting down.  Whatever is comfortable for you as long your posture is correct. 

Counter push-ups

When you’re done with the dishes and you’re trying to get things sorted out in your head, why not do counter push-ups?  This exercise can help lose the jiggles, trust me.  You can use your kitchen counter for this.  Face the counter and place your arms on it.  Move back from the counter until you are leaning towards the counter with your body straight.  Slowly bend your elbows until your chest area touches the counter.  Do not bend your knees.  Go back to your original position and then repeat the set.  This superb exercise can do a great job at toning your arms in just a few weeks.

arm flabChair dips

Before you doze off for the day, you can also make use of your bed or the nearest chair you can find for this exercise.  When you have anything stable to hold on to for this routine, face away from the furniture and keep about a foot or two of space between you and the chair or bed.  Lower your body and place your hands on the furniture.  Bend your knees and keep your back straight (as if on a sitting position without the actual chair).  Lower your body until it touches the floor.  Pull yourself up using your arms back to your original position.  Do this routine every day and your flab is sure to go away.

If you’re a woman on the go, you deserve a flab-free arm.  No woman likes to run around conquering the world with saggy arms, right?  So, if your busy time permits, get any of these home exercises for arm flab done, and everything will be just fine.
