Toning ArmsHere are opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers:
  • I am a registered esthetician. There is a program called EMS that is non-surgical and safe to use. Put it this way 30 minutes of this treatment is like 8 hours in the gym, however, 10 treatments and you'll be toned and trim.
  • If you're talking about what I call the "hello flab" (it shakes when you wave hello to someone on the other side of the room) then my best advice is to do exercises that work on your triceps. If you take 5lb weights in either hand and lift your arms straight up and out so your arms are at shoulder level - that's a good one. I started with 5lbs doing 3 reps of 6. Two days later it was 3 reps of 8; then two days later it was 3 x 10. Then I moved up to 8lbs and went back down to 6 reps. I now do it with 12 lbs and I'm working my way to 15. Now when I make a muscle the "hello flab" is rock solid.
  • Contrary to popular belief, doing specific exercises do not target the fat around a specific area. There is absolutely no way to target pecfic areas of fat. Period. For best results, you must do aerobic activity, weight training and proper diet to lose fat. Your body burns the fat as a whole, not from specific areas. The only way to get rid of the fat from the underarm (triceps) is to eat healthy exercise and perform exercises that tones/firms that certain area. You can do these exercises at home or in the gym, by using weights as stated above in the other comment ot if you don't have any weights you can do tricep dips, this enatails you finding a good sterdy surface that wont move and can withstand alot of weight. You stand infont of it with back to it, palms facing forward place your hands on the object i.e stair at home and you bend down from your elbows and back up again, so you are holding your weight do as many of these as you can until failure, do these everyday and it will work. The only reason why it shouldn't is if you have alot of access skin if you have lost alot of weight that can only be removed by surgery, not exercise alone.

Besides cosmetic surgery, the only way to actually add fat to your arms is to add it to your entire body.

It won't add fat, but it'll tone them and make them larger and healthier.

Dieting reduces fat system-wide. In men, stomach fat is the most problematic. It goes on there first, and without exercise to tone the abdominal muscles, it looks like it comes off last.

Put away that hacksaw! You probably don't want to reduce the size of your biceps, you just want to get rid of the fat that's accumulated on your arms. Eat right and exercise regularly to reduce the fat and gain a toned appearance.


You cannot spot reduce fat. To lose the fat on your arms, you need to lose fat all over.

You can't tone fat, but you can tone muscle. This will lead to the burning of fat. Try to hit the gym and use the weights and mix in some cardio. Your muscles will become defined and the fat will melt away. Yes, if there's muscle under the fat it makes it more solid. But softer fat is preferable.

The part of speech for 'tone' depends on how it is used. Examples: She will tone her arms by lifting weights. (tone = verb) Please describe the tone of the play. (tone = noun)

The only way to get rid of fat is cardio, such as running, dancing, biking, and swimming. Doing cardio combined with eating healthy (avoid refined carbs and sugar) should get rid of the fat. However, to firm up your butt you need to tone, you can try the bridge ( lay on the floor legs bent and lift butt up) or squats will lift and make your butt firmer

Swimming, like any form of exercise, can help to lose overall body fat. Breast strokes may also help to tone your arms muscles in general, but swimming does not specifically target armpit fat.

Best way to do it is to get a weight and hold it behind your head and lift up and down like 30 times a day. That gets rid of all that extra fat that seems to accumulate! :)

The fat that is the most dangerous for one's health is the intra-abdominal fat or visceral fat. The fat on the arms isn't a health risk. A Liposuction on the arms is more of a cosmetic procedure.

A lot of toning up exercises sweetheart. Push ups, sit ups, running, aerobics or even lifting heavy objects to improve your arm muscle tone. Cutting back on fatty food products will help too. :-)

One way to get rid of leg fat is to run, walk, and jump rope.
