You may think you’re carrying all your excess fat on your abdomen because it’s the easiest to spot. But fat could be hiding under your arms and on your back, places that you don’t get the chance to look at very often.
This type of excess fat can be serious, but it can also be a big confidence downer. A little excess fat should never compromise your confidence or self-esteem, but excess fat can sometimes stop us from looking and feeling our best. However, these four exercises that we suggest will provide the quickest effects to excess upper body fat, and they will quickly make you love the way you look.
Losing Back and Underarm Fat is Hard
There are several reasons it can be difficult to lose back and under arm fat. Perhaps you aren’t performing enough cardio or you aren’t using resistance training. Eating poorly, excessive alcohol consumption and stress are also large factors in stubborn back fat.
No matter what your activity level is, good rest comprising of a 6-8-hour sleep is optimal for performing a peak physical capacity. A lack of variation in your workouts could also be contributing to your fat, you could not be pushing yourself hard enough during a workout, and of course, the omnipresent suggestion, drink more water! Water is crucial for recovering muscles and flushing toxins from your body.
This exercise is great for your chest and shoulders, as it exercises your deltoids, latissmus dorsi, and pectoralis major.
Raise your arms above shoulder level, with your palms faced up.
Bend the knees to a 90-degree angle, and pull your arms together in front of your chest.
You should not raise your shoulders. Reverse the steps to return to the initial position, and make three sets of 10-12 repetitions.
