Many YouTube viewers have asked me, “How do I get rid of arm pit fat?” I finally decided to create a video to answer this popular query.
The problem with arm pit fat is that you cannot get rid of it with exercise. There are many factors that go into removing excess fat from one specific area. First, you need to change up your diet to lose more fat. A simple diet plan will do the trick.
If you’re curious what diet is best, it really really depends on your personality. Here is how I lose weight when I know I’ve been eating or drinking too much.
Second, you need to build some muscle underneath the skin. The best exercises for the arm fit fat area are push ups, supermans, lat pull downs at the gym, upright row, shoulder press, chest press and dumbbell chest fly. To learn how to do some of these moves, watch the video above or check out this updated favorite.
These arm workouts are also super helpful when it comes to getting rid of arm pit fat! My favorite is this chest and back workout that is actually called Boobs and Posture.
A more controversial answer includes findings from a few preliminary studies. Some research has linked chemicals in our diets and environment to arm pit fat. Chemicals like BPA, pesticides and hormones fed to animals that we eat. They have also linked medicine such as birth control to contibuting to the arm pit fat area. I am not recommending going off birth control if you are currently on it. However, I just want to point out that even with a proper diet and fitness plan, it may not be possible to get rid of this area of fat.
Lastly, this area is one of the top photoshopped areas on the female body. I remember teenage singer JoJo speaking to a classroom as part of Dove’s campaign for beauty, showing that she too in fact had arm pit fat and she was a skinny little thing. Do not dwell on one area of your body. We are all made differently. Genetics probably play the biggest role in how your body is composed. Looking at celebrities and envying their body parts is unrealistic because often times, they do not even look like the images of themselves you see in magazines.
