4 Best Arm Exercises To Burn Fat And Get Skinnier Arms
These four moves are the best arm exercises to help you achieve strong and toned arms (but not bulky guns). Get ready to burn some arm fat.
As you may already know, spot reducing fat is just a myth, even though we all want it to be true. (1)
It’s impossible to get rid of fat from a specific area of the body with a set of exercises that target only that single area.
Instead, a good “spot reducing” workout should focus on burning fat in the entire body and toning the targeted area.
That means that you can get skinnier arms, and burn fat in the rest of your body too, with the best arm exercises.
They’re designed to increase your heart rate, eliminate body fat and strengthen your flabby arms.
And if you pack these powerful arm exercises with a half an hour of running (or jogging, swimming, or any cardio workout), and a healthy diet, then you’ll meet all the scientific requirements to reduce body fat. (2)
Toned arms look skinny!
Best Arm Exercises
These arm exercises won’t help you melt the fat off your arms. Instead, they will help you burn fat overall, and tone the arm muscles to make them look slimmer.
Here are the best arm exercises to get skinnier guns:
1. Warrior Press
This move sets your arms, shoulders, and thighs on fire. Do it as slowly as you can to fully experience the burn in your muscles.
Hold a dumbbell in each hand, bend your elbows and bring the dumbbells in front of your chest.
Step into a side lunge position, keeping one leg straight and the other one bent at knee. Keep the thigh of the bent leg parallel to floor, and heels aligned.
This position is called the warrior pose in yoga.
Now press dumbbells directly above your head 20 times.
Then switch legs and do another 20 dumbbell presses.
2. Flip-Flop Dips
This move targets your biceps, triceps and shoulders, but it also gives you a little extra burn in your abs and legs.
Lay down in a reverse plank position with palms placed directly under your shoulders.
Lift one leg until it is parallel to the floor and keep it steady.
Slightly bend your elbows simultaneous until you feel a burn in your arms, then get back into the reverse plank position.
Keep your elevated leg straight during the entire exercise.
Try to perform 10 reps before switching legs. Then do 10 more.
And try not to cry… because this move isn’t just one of the best arm exercises, is one of the hardest too.
