What are the secrets to successful weight loss? First, focus on making exercise fun. Second, work out in groups. Third, change your routine. Finally, work on lifestyle changes that can be maintained.
Want to lose weight and get rid of arm flab?
Flabby arms can be toned without developing bulky muscles; while moderate exercise and portion control can help you lose weight and keep it off for good.
Weight Loss Tip # 1 – Avoid exercise boredom by signing up for classes. When you only use exercise machines, this could lead to that dangerous threat: monotony.
Research and find dance classes, hip-hop workout classes and kickboxing classes.
Weight Loss Tip # 2 – Team up with others for motivation and support. Nutrition classes will help to establish good portion control habits. Start with eating vegetables, salads, fruits, and grains.
Weight Loss Tip # 3 – Write small goals on mirrors: five-and-ten pound intervals so that you don’t become overwhelmed. Write motivational quotes on the mirrors.
Limit weigh-ins to once-a-week. Shrink your stomach by eating less. Eat three small meals a day and three small snacks a day. Avoid eating after 7:00 p.m.
Weight Loss Tip # 4 – Challenge your body and mind with a new workout routine. And a change of pace will burn major calories. Walk everyday for thirty minutes.
Add lunges, sit-ups, squats or push-ups to your walk. Walk to music.
Weight Loss Tip # 5 – Switch your goals by focusing less on weight and more on doing what you enjoy. Take pictures and create a motivational poster board.
When you fall off your routine, this board will be your inspiration. It will help you to regain your perspective.
Weight Loss Tip # 6 Women don’t have enough testosterone to build large amounts of muscle. It’s actually very difficult for women to get large arms, but women can develop arm flab due to weight gain.
Getting rid of arm flab is a three-part process:
1 ) You need to reduce the fat that sits on top of your muscles by burning more calories than you eat. Examine your diet and make sure you’re creating a caloric deficit. Calories can be calculated by visiting caloriecontrol.org.
2) You need to tone the muscle underneath the fat. One recommended strategy is to work your arm muscles from a variety of different angles; for your triceps (the rear upper-arm muscle.)
3) Do some basic exercises such as triceps press-downs, kickbacks, and overhead presses. These will ensure that each of three heads of the triceps muscle gets its proper workout. Additional exercises can be found on shape.com.
Whichever exercises you choose, use heavy-enough weights that your muscles fatigue after eight to twelve repetitions. Lift enough weight so that by the end of each set, you can’t do more repetition. Do three sets of eight. Lifting weights that are too light is a waste of time.
No need to panic; you can lose weight and get rid of arm jiggle. Use these tips to also trim tummy, hips and thighs and keep the weight off for good.
