Bats have webbed wings that hang from their arms to their bodies, enabling them to fly. This is great if you’re a mosquito-eating, cave-dwelling creature, but not so great if you’re a human! If you wave and your whole arm waves with you, maybe it’s time to get those wings clipped! After all, it gets hot in Florida and there are so many sleeveless styles that are totally “in” right now. If you wear long sleeves because you’re embarrassed by your arm flab, you are not only missing the fashion boat, but you’re probably sweating up a storm. Instead of living with the embarrassment and excess sweat, try these exercise tips for toned arms:
Swim! Hey, we’ve got an ocean at our fingertips, why not use it? Or go jump in the pool. Swimming is a fabulous arm flab fighter. Try a nifty pair of swimming gloves for even greater resistance, or swim only using your arms and not your legs.
Pump it up. Dumbbells are great for bicep curls, triceps kickbacks, and more. The best part is, you can start out with light weights and gradually increase the pounds and the repetitions you do. If you would rather stick with bodyweight exercises, pushups and triceps dips are great alternatives. Give us a call for complete instructions.
Of course if exercise just isn’t proving to be enough, ask Dr. Lisa J. Learn about an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty. This procedure removes the excess skin and fat from the underside of your upper arm, giving you a firmer, toned look you’ll definitely want to show off. The procedure is often combined with liposuction for an even greater slimming effect. Then you can bare your arms with confidence, so start stocking up on some of those stylish, sleeveless shirts today!
