Exercises and feeding tips to avoid bat arms (especially if you are losing weight)

We agree that life would be much easier if we could choose the areas of the body where we want to lose weight.

Then comes the change in the face, then in the breasts, precisely the place that you would like to leave as it is and after that, the hips. When you get to the belly, you are most likely bored of the caloric restriction (unnecessary. As a reminder: here are the diets that you should never do) that you have been subjected to, so the task will be half done.

The first, you will be able to create a healthy eating habit, so you will not regain the lost weight once you reach your goal. And the second, it will be much easier to tone up if you combine diet with exercise. We must bear in mind that fat is not lost in a localized way, but in an integral way throughout the body, so losing fat in the arms will be the consequence of a diet intended to lose weight globally. Toning, especially in this very specific area, is one of the main tasks focusing on triceps exercises that tone the muscle.
