Need Help with Upper Arm Size.


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to loose and inch or two on my upper arms. I have lost 29.5 pounds and have lost quite a few inches all over except my upper arms. What is strange a dress that I could wear about 6 years that is a formal gown fits perfect and is actually really loose except in the sheer arms. They are tight as could be and when I wore this 6 years ago it was loose.

Does anyone have any special exercises to help the flabby upper arms.

Get some 3 lbs weights and work your arms. I can't explain the exercises here, but Leslie Sansone has a video for your arms. It is suppose to be very good. Good luck!

One word---Pushups, do Bent knee ones, and really concentrate of form, do as many as you can 'till you cant push up the last time and then stretch--take a day off and then repeat---add more when ur ready.

push ups and pull ups are good but I have a very hard time with those--actually HATE them! I have had very good results with free weights. As the above poster said, buy some 3 lb weights and a video and good luck.

While my upper arms are a litttle tight, my biggest problem is the "wingspan" hanging down underneath the upper arms, and the spillover just under the arms.

Same Problem here Kathy. That wingy thing. I've talk to doc about it. If I can keep everything else the same for a year, they may do something for me.
