Many women are afraid that if working out the arms too much they might look too muscular, so they basically only focus on the lower body (buttocks, abdomen, and legs), however, this shouldn’t be the case.
When it comes to fitness, balance is important!
When women do weight exercises they don’t get their arm muscle increased as men. The reason for that is, our testosterone levels are much lower than in men. It is scientifically proven that testosterone has a lot to add up to muscle mass.
Furthermore, the changes in the muscles don’t come so quickly and it’s a process that gradually builds up.

HOW TO GET RID OF FLABBY ARMS

ONE-SIDED SHOULDER LIFTS
Stand straight with dumbbells in our hands, then place one arm at chest level, and from here we will stretch the arm upwards, extending it.
Make sure that the force is made only with the arms and that the rest of the body remains stable while keeping the back straight.
You need to stand up straight with your knees soft, holding the weights by your sides, and then turn your hands so your palms are facing away from you.
Then inhale and then, exhale as you curl the weights up toward your shoulders, keeping your elbows tight by your sides, and inhale again as you lower your hands down.
BENCH PRESS WITH DUMBBELLS
Lye with your back on a bench and then keep your arms straight and take a dumbbell in each hand.
Lower the dumbbells until they are close to the sides of your chest and then you need to finish the exercise and press them back up to the starting position.
It’s recommended to work out your arms 2-3 times a week and you can do 2-3 sets per exercise.
