Is it time to finally wear tank-tops and short-shorts. Are you ready for it or do you need to lose arm fat fast?
You know that stubborn jiggly flesh on the back of your arm that never seems to go away no matter how hard you work it.
The weather says it’s time for tank tops and bathing suits but your flabby arms are saying no, not yet, we need more time.
You need a plan to lose arm fat fast and not miss any of the fun this summer.
This post is for you if:
First, what not to do.
Don’t focus on working your arms in false belief that you somehow can preferentially reduce the fat on your arms.
You can’t do it. You can’t do it for belly fat, fat legs, a fat face nor flabby arms. It just doesn’t work that way. Your body stores fat all around itself from top to bottom.
You now have a photo progression of how your body gains weight. Just run it backwards and you will know how the weight will come off. That is your genetics.
And genetics are running your show (for the most part).
So if you want to lose arm fat fast and you know you cannot force the arm fat to reduce until your body says it is ready, what do you do?
You accelerate overall body fat loss by focusing on two things:
You may love yoga and Pilates but they are not your answer for accelerating fat loss.
I am not saying don’t do them. They certainly offer benefits but don’t expect your shredded triceps to magically show up from doing the downward dog.
Resistance training is a broad term that covers weight lifting, body weight exercises and really anything that provides an opposing force when moving your body through space.
Resistance exercise is ideal because you get an additional benefit that most other forms of exercises don’t offer.
Not only do you burn energy while performing the exercise but you can get an after burn effect when you train hard enough to break down muscle tissue.
It is common for your body to remain at an elevated metabolic rate after lifting weights due to the healing and muscle repair required after a good workout.
This is what you want. Maximize your calories burned for the time invested.
Warm weather is coming and you need to lose arm fat fast. No time to mess around.
You gotta go big with your exercise selection. By this I mean move the big muscle groups through their full range of motion.
Big muscles mean big energy expenditure. You want to train the legs, hips, back chest and shoulders to lose arm fat fast.
Don’t work your arms, focus on everything else!
Don’t worry, your arms will get trained as a secondary effect of pushing and pulling weights for the other body part movements.
