Nobody likes flabby arms but unfortunately many have them. Why is that so? Flabby arms happen due to extra fat deposits in this area and even though it may be easier to burn the fat from other parts of our body it kind of looks like this arm fat is extremely hard to eliminate. And layer by layer the fat makes our arms flabby.
As we age the problem becomes more evident. When we start finishing our twenties our body starts to accumulate and deposit more fat in different parts of our body and our lean muscles begin to decrease. And in time the accumulated fat becomes more than the muscle it surrounds and makes our arm look flabby.
Not exercising enough or engaging in some kind of activity also causes more fat to accumulate and leads to flabby arms. Another thing we can add to the list is a slower metabolism. As we get older our metabolic functions decrease, we can’t burn enough calories, we store more fat and part of this fat goes to the arms as well. All these factors contribute to this unattractive appearance.
Are you among the flabby arms people? Do you feel like everyone is looking at your arms when you’re wearing shorter sleeves? Or maybe you don’t wear them at all?
If this is the case then you’ll be happy to hear that there are specific exercises which can help you lose that stubborn arm fat and get the toned look you’ve desired for a long time.
