In modern society these days it’s not so much about being skinny, but rather the social media promotes and encourages a healthy body. Even though dieting is a big part of that, exercising as well has a huge role in living healthy as well.
Male, female we all have different bodies however every one of us want to be our healthiest and look our healthiest. There are surely some areas on your body that you might feel have excess fat, which may cause those areas to look slightly bigger.
Men and women definitely experience different parts that they feel store the most excess fat. For women, those problem areas are usually their inner thighs, or their buttocks, even their arms.
If you are someone or know someone who is having difficulty figuring out where to start to lose underarm and breast side fat, then stop worrying.
Because we can tell you it’s not even excess weight but some insufficiently developed muscle of the arms and chest, and there are all easy exercises that if done regularly over time, give you some great results.
Dumbbell Floor Press
The first exercise that can help you out with those frustrating areas is the dumbbell floor press. According to Women Fitness, this specific exercise is a clean upper body movement, allowing you to press some heavy weights without hurting your shoulders and your back.
The site notes that all you have to do is lie on your back on the floor and just push up the dumbbells up so your arms go directly over your shoulders. Women Fitness says that pressing one arm at a time will “increase the core demands of the exercise, as you have to brace to keep your torso steady”.
Before we go to the next exercise it is important to realize that everyone experiences those annoying folds of skin between your arm and your breast, so in case if you feel like you are the only one that struggles, don’t!
It’s super common and according to Women’s Health Magazine, “all of us store weight in certain places based on our genetics, so just have in mind that if you’re trying to lose a little from a certain spot, you need to focus on losing overall body fat.”
The magazine points out as well that diet has a huge role in all of this. So, although these exercises can help you gain muscle and reduce the fat, if you are eating fattening food, these exercises won’t help so make sure you watch what you eat.
Diet is very important. Women’s Health writes that you need to make it a point to take in less calories than you are “expending overall (not just via exercise)”.
Staggered Push Ups
Alright let’s return our focus back to the exercises. Shape.com is a fitness site and they’ve released a 30-day-challenge HIIT workout. So one of the exercises they’ve included is the staggered push-up and that’s the exercise that’ll help you with underarm and breast side fat.
The site explains that unlike regular push-ups, with these you have to have one hand slightly back and the other slightly in front of you. Then you do the push-up! As previously mentioned, you can be working out as hard as ever, but if you aren’t eating the right foods, you won’t see the results you want.
According to Livestrong, the best pre- and post-training meals, they recommend for most exercises typically have a combo of high-quality protein, high-quality carbohydrates, healthy fats and some fruit and veggies. But everyone’s body is different so you need to find what works for you and your lifestyle!
Dumbbell floor fly
To perform this exercise, you must keep your back straight, lean forward and bring the weights together in front of you until your arms form a circle.
Thensite LiveStrong mentions that any form of standing dumbbell training works a lot of muscles in your upper body. Form is very crucial. Having poor form can cause shoulder impingement.
Are praised by muscleandfitness.com to be the most basic exercise that “strengthens the back, shoulders, and biceps while actively engaging the core throughout the movement”.
The site also notes that dumbbells are a crucial aspect for this exercise (as well as all the other ones) because they not only create muscle, they create balance and stability on both sides of the body. Don’t be afraid to lift and create muscles; it’ll create such a difference.
According to livestrong.com, dips are exercises that go a long way for those annoying, flabby areas of your body. They write, “dips are intense and effective isolation exercises that help develop powerful and defined triceps”.
They’re also exercises that you can do just about anywhere. That’s why the last exercise on this list is the bench dip. Just position your hand shoulder-width apart on a bench or chair.
With your legs straight out in front of you, simply move up and down, with a pause at the bottom!
