Goodbye Batwings! This 4-Move Workout Helps Lose Arm Fat
Your abs are not the only sign of healthiness. If you want to get an overall good physique, then you should also work hard on your arms and legs. So here are 4 simple moves that will help you lose arm fat and define your shoulders and arms.
Even though spot reduction is just a myth, and you can’t actually lose arm fat, this workout is a bat wings destroyer. That’s because besides the arm movements involved, it also contains full body exercises that torch fat overall.
Squats, lunges and pushups engage all your body muscles (more or less) and really melt the pounds away. At the same time, the arm movements strengthen your biceps, triceps and deltoid.
It’s like you’re doing a cardio and a strength training session in a single workout. Lose fat overall, lose arm fat, and get toned arms!
Incorporate these 4 moves into your workout to tonify your arm muscles and burn the extra fat.
How To Lose Arm Fat With 4 Simple Exercises
For beginners, 10 reps for each exercise should be enough. But if you feel this is too easy, increase the weight, or the number of repetitions.
Anyway, if you’re not a beginner and want to rock this workout, you’ll need to do each of these 4 exercises until you feel the burn in your arms… and then do 5 more reps.
Three sets are mandatory if you want to lose arm fat and show off your “guns” in a sleeveless shirt. But if you feel you can do more, then aiming for 5 sets per day should be your goal.
For the best results, I recommend doing this arm workout at least 4 times a week. Or you can add these exercises to your favourite workout routine to challenge yourself even more.
The 4 compound exercises used in this workout that promises to help you lose arm fat and forget about your bat wings are:
- Dumbbell squats;
- Dumbbell lunge with bicep curls;
- Elevated pushups;
- Pushups and rows.
Besides your arm muscles, these exercises engage 3 of the biggest muscle groups in your body:
- Gluteus Maximus – the most voluminous muscle group in the human body;
- Latissimus Dorsi – the widest muscle group in the human body;
- Quadriceps Femoris – the second largest muscle group in the human body;
You should already know that the bigger the muscle you’re working is, the more fat you’re burning. And with these 4 exercises you’ll be able to maximize your fat burning process. ( 1 )
