Flabby arms are embarrassing
especially if you like wearing strappy dresses or sleeveless tops.
Tone flabby arms with these simple arm
There are two reasons for flabby
arms, one is being overweight and you will have to address this as well, but itís not the only reason.
The other reason is loss of tone to the muscle at the back of your arm, the tricep muscle, and there are many women who are slight in build that also suffer from flabby arms, especially as they get older.
How To Tone Up Flabby
Flabby arms can be caused by excessive weight but if you lose weight by dieting alone or do not do arm exercises as you grow older then you will inevitably end up with loose
and soft muscles in your arms. Muscles that are not used on a regular basis quickly become soft
whether you are overweight or not.
So it's not only people who are overweight who
are wondering how to tone up flabby arms.
Here's what the experts say:
Rylan Duggan, a Women's Fitness Expert and author of Go Sleeveless, has this to say: 'Even some of the leanest women in showbiz have bat wing arms and droopy skin because they have neglected to build and tone the muscles in their arms'.
Rylan also warns: 'If you only ever focus on losing body fat, your arms will look worse!'
Rylan Duggan is the expert quoted in much of
the media coverage concerning Michelle Obama, and in 'Totally
Toned Arms in 21 Days', he offers his 21-day program to get those sleek and sexy
arms for yourself. If you want toned arms, then it's a must read!
You will discover the secrets Michelle Obama
used to have totally toned and sexy arms. Rylan Duggan says: "Obama's arms are popular because she's not too skinny and she's not overly muscled. She's lean and toned yet still feminine."
Rylan also has three simple steps to help you get toned and sexy arms you
can proudly show off in strappy dresses and sleeveless tops.

Burning Exercise for tips on burning off fat and toning up at the same
You donít have to look overweight either to carry fat on your upper arms, even if you are quite slim you can still have fat pockets and this is called being skinny-fat. If your arms are flabby then itís a good indication that the rest of your body is un-toned as well.
The muscles at the back of the top your arms are no different to any other muscles in your body but you have to use them to keep them toned. The problem is they can be extremely hard to get to.
Before I give you any tips on how to tone up flabby arm muscles itís a good idea to understand how muscles in general work and interact with each other.
Muscles are there to move your bones and they fall into two groups. One group of muscles shortens as the other group lengthens to allow the joint to flex and they work in pairs in tandem with each other.
Strengthening the muscles on the back of your arms alone is going to be difficult because isolating one group of muscles (spot toning) doesnít work.
Using weights to add resistance will also build up the muscles on top of your arm as they work hard to shorten. Many women worry that using exercises with weights will make them look too muscled but the truth is it takes years of dedication to build up muscles like a weightlifter.
So you wonít end up with bulging biceps unless you work extremely hard to get them and then work hard to keep them. This is a full time job for professional weightlifters so itís not going to happen to you by accident.
Lifting weights will speed up the process and make toning of your arm muscles quicker and easier.
There are several flabby arms exercises without weights you can do to tone up your arms and how fast your arms tone up depends largely on how often you do them.
Flabby Arms Exercises Without
Flabby Arms Exercise 1
Stand with feet shoulder width apart, step forward with one foot and bend slightly at the knees. Hold your arms a little away from your sides, bend your arms at the elbow, form fists with your hands and hold your fists at chin level.
You should now be in a boxer stance.
Punch the air in front of you alternately with each fist so that your arms extend to their full length at shoulder level and you twist at the waist. Keep your arms up at shoulder level and count 20 energetic punches.
Without stopping, look up and punch the air above your head in the same way. Extend your arms to their full length and feel those muscles stretch. Put as much energy into it as you can and count 20 punches.
Return to punching the air in front of you for another 20 repetitions and then above your head again.
You should aim for 3 sets of each and increase to 5 sets as your stamina improves. This is also a good cardio exercise because it will get your heart pumping.

4 Ė 8 pounds each produces

heavier weights for shorter workouts which will produce the muscular results found in weight lifters.
