5 exercises that can help you reduce arm fats:

1. Push-ups

Push-ups are one of the basic exercises that can be performed anywhere at anytime. Even though it is a basic exercise, it works a few of your muscle groups such as your shoulders, back arms, abdominals, chest muscles, and the wing muscles that are hidden under your armpit. Put in some effort and you will be able to see some results on your arms and other areas of your body.

How to do it:

  • Start in the plank position with your hands firmly on the ground, directly under your shoulders.
  • Ground your toes into the floor to stabilise your lower body.
  • Flatten your back so that your entire body is neutral and straight.
  • Begin to lower your body until your chest grazes the floor.
  • Make sure to keep your body straight. Do not let your butt dip or stick out.
  • Push yourself back up to the starting position.
  • Do this for 15 reps and 3 sets.

If the normal push-up is a little difficult, you can try doing the easier version by using your knees to support your lower body instead of your toes, which is also known as the knee push-up.

Your triceps are muscles that run on the backside of your upper arm, from your shoulder to your elbow. Toning your triceps will help you to tone your arms easily. You do not need a lot of equipment in order to do the triceps dips. You can use a chair, a bench, or anything that can elevate you from the ground.

How to do it:

  • Position your hands shoulder-width apart on a secured bench or a stable chair.
  • Slide your butt out of the front of the bench with your legs extended in front of you.
  • Straighten your arms, keeping a little bend in your elbows.
  • Then, slowly bend your elbows to lower your body towards the floor until your elbows are at a 90 degrees angle.
  • Then, press down to the bench and straighten your elbow to return to the starting position.
  • Repeat.
  • Do this for 15 reps for 3 sets.
