Default Flabby arms

What does everyone on here recommend for flabby arms? What sort of exercises will help me to tone and tighten that area? And how many times a week should I work them? I guess it would be more my tricep area as my biceps do not look so bad but the flab under the arms that wiggles and jiggles. Thanks.

Would like more info. What does diet look like? Fat is fat, no matter where it is located, exercise is only a small part of the process.

I agree that more info will help, but in the mean time... Changes in your diet and activities will benefit anyone who is not already a strict dieting top tier athlete. If you feel that the problem isn't necessarily the "size" of the area so much as the "composition", i.e. not large, but just too soft, the first step is to look at the foods you eat. Once you can honestly say you've done your nutrition homework, and have a diet plan in place, move to your physical activity. If you're already going to a gym, assess what you're doing for it's benefits. Are you a "cardio bunny", spending an hour on a flat tread mill set at speed 5.0, or an elliptical reading a magazine? Do you find you spend your time doing exercises Cosmo says will "tone" you, or reduce fat from specific areas. These tend to be bogus routines designed to appeal to a large demographic. Of course well all want rippling abs and firm asses. Resistance training. Really, speaking as a beginner in the world of not being "skinnyfat" anymore, I can't say enough about how doing resistance training properly can change your life. If you feel like you'd like to decrease body fat in the process, end your workouts with a bit of HIIT (high intensity interval training). Once we know more about you, there will be better, less vague answers.

I try to eat as healthy of a diet as I can. I do eat a lot of chicken and fish and salads as well. Soda is a downfall of mine. I do not drink a lot of water, but will drink sweetened tea. I could aim to get more fruits in my diet. I usually eat a few servings of veggies a day. Breakfast is usually cold cereal or oatmeal unless it is the weekend when I will have eggs, bacon, pancakes, or something along those sorts. I usually only eat two meals on the weekends, but eat 3 on weekdays.

Heidi, your problem, sadly, is written all through this post. "As healthy of a diet as I can..." Usually means, " I really have no idea what I am eating." I/ we are not intending to come across mean, but based on what you posted, your diet IS the problem. Many of us would be happy to help, but you must first be willing to help yourself. When you are ready PM, and I will be happy to help you.

Kick the soda habit if you can. I know that is hard but it is for the best. Soda is not good for you at all and the sooner you kick this, the better you will feel. Try to get more water into your diet. Do it with crystal light or Mio, or use green tea with no sugar or very little.
