There are certain body parts that accumulate fat that’s very hard to get rid of. Even if you tone your body and work out actively, those parts will be stubborn enough not to go away.
One of those areas where the fat settles down and is hard to get rid of is the arms area. The more fat accumulates in the area, the more flabby the upper arm gets, which tends to bother many people.
Women experience this issue very often, and if the top arm fat is accompanied by armpit fat, this tends to be a problem while wearing straps.
Since this is such a problem for many people because it bothers their confidence, we’ve gathered some exercises for you to do in order to get rid of the flab around the upper arm effectively.
1. Simple Starter
This rotating arm exercise is easy and is usually the first one you do for your arm routine. This is a good warm-up and reduces flabs.
- Stand and have your feet to apart
- Stretch your arms so that they’re aligning with the floor in a parallel way
- Make a fist with both your hands
- Start moving your hands in a rotative motion. Repeat this about twenty times. You should mimic a clock’s motion
- Rest for about fifteen seconds
- Repeat up to fifteen minutes
Repeat this at least two times a day. You can basically do it absolutely anywhere since you don’t need anything.
2. The X and V Exercise
This is a straightforward exercise and you can do it as a first warmer up as well. Read below about how to do it yourself.
- Stand up with your legs apart
- Stretch out your arms fully, and pull them on the inside, so they form the letter V
- Then, while doing this, pull them, so they make the letter X
- Repeat by going back and forth for about twenty times.
- Relax your arms for about fifteen seconds between each twenty-time set
- Repeat up to twenty times overall
Do this routine twice a day or even a lot more if you can or have the time.
3. Arm Plunges

You should repeat this about two times per day. To make this a bit more challenging, you can even hold up some weights, or a can, or maybe just a water bottle. This will be better for the flexing since your muscles are going to have something to hold on and will be tighter.
4. It’s All About The Elbows
