How To Slim Your Arms
1. Exercises for the arms: Do you dream of having sculpted and sexy arms? Some simple exercises will get you the arms of your dreams in next to no time.
-For the first exercise, start with 2kg dumbbells - you can increase up to 5 kg as you progress and build up your strength. Standing feet slightly apart, knees slightly bent, take a dumbbell in each hand. Raise your arms up to shoulder height, palms down, keeping your elbows slightly bent. Lower your arms, then start again. Do 2 sets of 10 movements every day.
-Another dumbbell exercise: lie on the floor, knees bent and feet flat. Take a dumbbell in each hand, arms extended on each side of the body. Holding out your arms and without bending your back, bring the dumbbells back over your head. Repeat the movement 10 times, and do 3 daily sets.
-Last exercise to slim the arms: do push-ups to strengthen and refine your triceps. Take up a push-up position - arms stretched out, knees touching the floor, on the tips of your toes - putting your hands at shoulder height. Tense your abdominals and bend your arms so that your chest approaches the ground. Your back should stay straight, elbows point back, upper arms stay along the body. Press the arms to go back to the initial position, then try again. Do 2 sets of 8 push-ups each day.
2. Diet to slim the arms: If you suffer from cellulite on your arms, you might want to adopt a targeted anti-cellulite diet: opt for foods rich in antioxidants (garlic, aubergine, beetroot, coffee, carrot, ginger, etc. .) and diuretics (meadowsweet infusions, fennel, dandelion, artichoke).
If your problem is not cellulite, opt for foods with a moderate glycemic index (whole grains, vegetables, pulses, fresh fruits, lean meats, shellfish) and avoid dairy products, animal fats, and ready meals.
3. Tips for losing weight on the arms: Some sports are particularly effective for slimming down the arms: swimming, dancing, yoga, pilates, javelin. These activities perfectly sculpt the arms - give one of them a go alongside the exercises described above!
