Losing weight from difficult areas such as the arms may require the eventual loss of a high percentage of fat because the body draws energy from all over rather than from one specific place, even if there is regularly exercise for the arms it will often tone them up before fat will reduce in the arms. Many people who suffer with flabby arms may find it best to tone the arm muscles rather than exercise to try losing weight from such difficult areas. When people try to lose weight from the arms or problem areas they often find they lose it from other areas first, sometimes even losing weight from places they don’t want to lose it! If there are a large number of fat cells around the arms, losing fat around the arms will often take longer because there is more fat to shift than in other areas.
The best way would be to tone the arms while at the same time losing weight with basic aerobic exercise. The best exercise for toning the arms are single-joint movements. Examples are curls and tricep kick-backs. These exercises place direct stress on the bicep and tricep muscles of the arm causing them to firm up much more quickly. In fact the triceps muscle at the back of the arm make up two-thirds of arm size so it would probably be best to work more at toning the tricep muscle of the arm. Squats mainly stress the quadriceps, lower back and the buttocks, they also place secondary stress on the hamstrings, carves, back and abdomen areas. Bench presses stress the chest, triceps, shoulders and chin ups stress the upper back, biceps and forearms.
