5 Simple Ways to Lose Arm Fat at Home

It can be quite unpleasant and embarrassing at times. Every woman desires toned and slim arms in order to wear the latest fashions, while men desire massive muscles.

Have you ever waved goodbye to someone only to discover that the extra jiggle in your arm continued to swing in the breeze long after your hand ceased to move? Here are some tips for losing excess arm fat.

 

1. Increase the amount of protein you consume.

Increase your protein intake to lose arm fat more quickly.

The University of Texas discovered that supplementing with protein increased muscle synthesis by up to 25%, implying that you can build stronger muscles faster in the privacy of your own home.

2. Do the dip.

Dips are not easy, but they are well worth the effort if you want lean arms. It's simple to do at home with parallel bars or even a sturdy chair. Grip whatever surface you're dipping on with your arms shoulder-width apart at the waist. Bend your elbows to 90 degrees, bringing your entire body down, and then extend your arms to straighten them again.

Not only does this help you develop strong triceps, but it can also help define your pectoral muscles, giving your entire upper body a stronger appearance and feel.

3. Juice from grapefruits

You are, as the adage goes, what you eat. Rather than drinking only water before and after meals, add a half glass of grapefruit juice to your diet to aid in the loss of excess arm fat.

On a larger scale, when you lose fat, it disappears from every part of your body, which is why a few sips of real grapefruit juice—the fresh, no-sugar-added variety—can help you finally say goodbye to those bat wings.

4. Cardiovascular augmentation

Cardio is recommended if you want to lose the excess fat that causes your arms to wiggle.

Additionally, it benefits heart health, metabolism, and diabetes management.

5. Consumption of nutritious foods

Under no circumstances should you skip breakfast, as this will result in excessive eating later in the day. Plan your meals so that you aren't tempted by unhealthy salty and sugary snacks.
