Postpartum Weight Loss: Exercises for Flabby Upper Arms

Posted Jul 30 2010 4:55pm

To Sara of Fit by Sara: “Ever since having my first child I’ve had flabby upper arms that jiggle with the slightest movement.  I really hate it! Is there any exercises I can do to get rid of the flab?”

From Fit by Sara: “There many exercises you can do to firm the muscles of the upper arms, however one key element is to recognize that you won’t see the firming of muscles until body fat is lost.  Losing body fat is accomplished with consistent exercise, moderate portion sizes, and eating healthy. A simple exercise you can do at home to firm the muscles of the upper arms is tricep dips.”
 To do Tricep Dips 1. Sit on the edge of your chair with your back straight and your feet on the floor
2. Bring your bottom slightly away from the edge of your chair
3. Slowly bend your elbows and lower your bottom towards the floor
4. When you feel your muscles of the upper arms working or contracting straighten your arms so you come back up towards the original seated position, but do not sit down
5. Repeat lowering your body and pressing back up
6. Repeat 10-15 reps.  Work up to 2-3 sets.
