One of the most embarrassing jiggles on a woman’s body, and one of the most difficult areas to make progress on is underarm jiggle.
Targeting and working on underarm jiggle is not difficult, you just have to know which exercises to do and how to perform them most effectively.
The following exercises will help master underarm flab.
Ways to Get Rid of Underarm Jiggle
Arm raise with palms parallel
Hold a 3 to 5 lb dumbbell in each hand with hands parallel, palms facing each other. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Beginning with your hands at your waist. Lift your arms out straight in front of you to chest level. Hold for a five second count and lower. Maintain muscle control as you lower the weights. Repeat for 3 sets of 10 reps.
Cross chest press
Use one dumbbell at a time to complete this arm firming exercise. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Hold the dumbbell by your side. Lift arm in a semi-circle in front of your body. Keep your palm facing your body. Raise the dumbbell to chest level. Hold for a count of five seconds. Lower your arm reversing the semi-circle back to starting position. Aim for 3 sets of 10 reps.
One of my favorite exercises to help tone under arm flab and tone triceps is the kickback. Hold a dumbbell in each hand with palms facing inward. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend slightly forward from the hips. Keep your elbows close to your sides as you alternately pump each arm back extending your arm behind you. As you pull one arm into a curl extend the other arm behind you. Feel the stretch in your tricep, but be careful not to hyperextend your elbow. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
Bent arm cross chest
Hold a dumbbell in one hand, beginning with the dumbbell by your leg. Stand with your feet should-width apart. Bend your elbow with your palm facing inward. Lift the hand holding the dumbbell to the opposite shoulder. Hold for a count of five seconds. Sweep it over your head, facing your palm outward, until your arm is straight in the air. Lower your arm back down by your side and repeat. Do 3 sets of 10 reps with each arm.
Stretched arm pull back
Use an exercise band to perform this exercise. Stand with legs shoulder-width apart. Grab the resistance band with both hands extending it across your chest to a point of resistance. Adjust your hand grip on the band as needed. Bring hands together in front of your chest. Then pull the band across the width of your chest extending arms in both directions. Keep shoulders level and the resistance band centered across your body. Hold for a five second count. Return hands to center. Repeat the exercise. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
As your body begins to adapt to these exercises increase the number of reps to 12 to 15 or do an additional set or two of ten reps. Work up to 50 repetitions, taking as many sets as necessary.
Work these exercises into your workout routine 3 times a week. You should soon begin to see your under arm firming up. You will have less arm jiggle in no time at all.
