It’s not nice, it’s not attractive and it’s definitely not the look you want – so you want to know how to get rid of arm flab once and for all?
There is no ‘get rid of arm flab quick scheme’ though. It’ll take a little time, but you have to be determined, be focused and above all else, persevere. If you can do all of these, then I promise you will get the results you strive for.
There are three things that you will need to do to get rid of arm flab and they are:
- Arm strengthening exercises targeting both the biceps and triceps muscles.
- Some intensive cardiovascular exercise to burn the excess body fat.
- Eat a really healthy and well-balanced diet.
Arm strengthening exercises involving some resistance in the form of weights are extremely important. When the muscles are placed under stress, the muscle fibres break down and as they repair, they grow burning more and more calories from the body, thus burning up excess body fat.
This continues to happen for many days after the repair process starts, encouraging the muscle to grow and increase in size. Bigger muscles require more energy to function even when resting so they will continue to burn calories and body fat always.
High intensity interval training is another method of burning fat, again that will last for many hours after you’ve finished the workout itself.
And finally, the diet. Lots of lean protein is required to help with the repair and growth of the muscles after performing strength training exercises, and up to 6 small meals a day is preferable when trying to build the muscle mass.
As I said before, bigger muscles burn more fat – now that you know how to get rid of arm flab forever, what are you waiting for?
