Wings or Nah

Welcome to the Wings or Nah Section!

This section is meant to help the crisis of arm fat. It’s real out here guys. We all have it, except the ones that don’t eat of course. We all want to rid it, except the ones that don’t eat of course. We all want to avoid it, except the ones….. You got my drift.

I’ve always wondered if arm fat was due to my eating habits? or getting older in age? Or is it because I’m not doing enough arm exercises?

I want to learn and provide information on how to reduce this issue and have that summer body all year round.

So get up ya’ll.

It’s time to fly up and get fit.

You know that infamous area along the back of your arms, the nemesis of so many women? The wiggle and the jiggle that happens every time your arms are in the air?

Yeah, you know exactly what I’m referring to don’t you? But don’t be alarmed, I’m here to help you get a hold of this thing called “Arm Love Handles”.

Helpful Steps

Step one: Eat a healthy balanced diet with proper nutrients.

Step two: Try to get at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep  for your body to repair, recover, and build muscle.

Step three: Try to maintain your exercise programs for quicker results.

Step four: Drink a lot of water. Water helps maintain a sense of fullness and also helps alertness. It will reduce your cravings which  in the end will help reach your goal faster.

Step five: Try these below  flab-fighting exercises;

For a Challenge: Do each exercise back to back with no rest, performing as many repetitions as possible in 30 to 60 seconds.

 1. Thumb Downs: Stand in a wide stance and point your toes outward.  Keep your spine in a neutral position, chin up and hips pulled in. Extend both arms outward directly over knees with your hands in the thumbs up position. Next, rotate the thumbs in and downward (as if you were pouring our a bottle of water). Slowly lower your arms, thumbs brushing closely inside the thighs until they meet (starting position). Then in one quick movement repeat.

2. Bridge the Gap: Position your back against a corner. Walk your feet forward, keeping only your head and back against the wall. Raise your arms up 90 degrees with elbows bent. Squeeze your shoulders blades together while contracting your triceps and drive your elbows back into the walls to lift your body off of it. You’ll end up in a standing position. Retract.

 

3. Hands of Time: Position yourself in a  standard pushup position, feet fully extended outward and your hands directly under your shoulders. Pick your right/left hand off of the ground and begin to perform as many counter clockwise circle as possible for 20 to 40 seconds. Quickly switch directions (clockwise) for another 20 to 40 seconds. Try to  contract the tricep muscle on the circling arm to maximize gains.

 4. Geisha-Ups: Start  in a kneeling position on the floor. Go forth and touch your big toes together while sitting on the heels of your feet. Separate your knees as wide as your hips. Then extend your arms out in front of your body with your palms facing the floor and arms positioned shoulder width apart. Should look similar to child pose. Next, drive your hips forward and fall into a pushup position. Try to come as close  as possible to the ground with your chest while your knees remain on the ground. Elbows should be tight on the sides, in order to maximize tricep development. Retract.

5. Body Rockers: Starting in a planked position, fully extend your legs and upper area of your body supported by only your elbows. Then replace your elbows with your hands until you have reached a traditional pushup position. Resulting now in your  hands supporting your upper body. Return to your elbows and repeat.
