Flabby arms look as bad as any other part of the body with excess fat. They make you look bad. They make sleeveless clothes seem like a distant dream. Flabby arms can ruin your entire look even if you have a perfect body. Flabby arms are also known as bat wings. 

Regular exercise can definitely help you get rid of those flabby arms - the ones you despise so much. Let’s take a look at some exercises that can help you tone them down. 

Push-ups 

Push-ups are chest exercises but they can help work triceps as well, thereby reducing the fat around your arms. 

Steps 

  • Lie flat on the floor and keep your weight on your chest with your elbows pointed towards your toes 
  • Make a straight line from head to toe – a plank. 
  • Now, lower your torso to the ground holding yourself up with your hands and come back up to the initial position. 
  • Keep your body as straight as possible. Come a few inches up the ground each time you go down for a rep.

Triceps Extensions

This exercise definitely helps tone the arms and it also makes the arms strong. 

Steps 

  • Stand straight with a dumbbell in your hand and keep your feet width apart from each other. 
  • Hold the dumbbell with both hands and hold them behind your head with your palms facing upward. 
  • Keep your upper arms close to your head and your elbow perpendicular to the floor. 
  • Breathe in as you do this and go back to the initial position by using the triceps to raise the dumbbell. 

One-Arm Side Push-Up

One-arm side push-up is an exercise specifically for the triceps. 

Steps 

  • Lay on your left side on an exercise mat with your right arm bent, keeping the palm flat on your shoulder. 
  • Wrap your left arm around your rib cage with your knees slightly bent. 
  • Push yourself up from the ground with the help of your right arm.
  • Repeat on the other side. 
  • Do 15-20 reps.

Triceps Dips

This is easy and can be done pretty much anywhere. But ensure that you are being careful. This strengthens the triceps and helps tone the arms. 

Steps

  • Place your hands shoulder-width apart on a bench or a chair. 
  • Extend your legs in front of you. 
  • Straighten your arms while bending your knees, keeping the tension on your triceps. 
  • Now, bend your elbows to lower your body towards the floor. 
  • Once close to the ground, straighten your elbows by pushing them into the bench or chair. 
  • Come back to the starting position and repeat. 
  • Do 15-20 reps and 3 sets.

Arm Stretches

Pulling the hands to the opposite sides creates a stretch in the triceps, which helps in toning them. 

Steps 

  • Raise your hands above your head and hold your right wrist with your left hand – interlock them. 
  • Now, pull your right hand towards your left, making your right elbow fall behind your head. 
  • Now, release and take your arms back to the center. 
  • Repeat on the other side and do at least 20 reps on each side.
