Under Arm Exercises

In the south, when spring comes it means that the warm weather has arrived. We might have a couple days that will be 60 degrees – but for the most part the 80 to 90 degree weather has begun. That means that we want to start wearing the sun dresses and tank tops that look cute and that help to keep us cooled off.

The problem is that most of us are afraid to wear these things due to the fact that it shows off the under arm flab that we hate so much. This is the worst area for women and the hardest to work out. This is due to the fact that we are doing the wrong exercises. The triceps are the muscles to be targeting and we have the work outs to help with this problem area.

The Crank

Stand with a resistance band underneath one of your feet and hold each end of it in each hand. Extend your arms straight out in front of you and at shoulder height. Make sure that you do not lock the elbows. Now rotate the hands in a circular motion. Do 10 reps in one direction and another 10 in the other direction.

Chest Fly

Hold dumbbells and lie with your back on the floor. Bend the knees, keep the feet flat on the floor, and the arms straight out to the sides with the palms facing up and elbows slightly bent. Lift your hips slightly so that the body is in a straight line from the knees to the shoulders. Squeeze the chest and raise your arms and dumbbells over the chest. Pause and slowly lower back down. Keep the hips raised for each of the 15 reps.

Tricep Lifts

Hold the dumbbell in your left arm and place it over your head. With your other hand, grab you’re the left elbow. Your right arm should be sitting across your forehead. Slowly lower the arm down to the middle of the back and than back up again. Make sure that your arm is not moving. The right hand on the elbow will keep it from moving around. If the arm comes off the forehead than you are moving too much. Do 10 reps.
