Do you often feel conscious when you are sitting at the dining table and you are asked to spray some salt on a dish? Well, people who have visible arm fat feel conscious. Don’t worry, we have the perfect solution for this and will try our best to help you overcome it.
Zubin Atré , Founder of AtréYoga, an author, Tedx speaker and an audiophile shares how we can try and lose arm fat. He also busts several myths around arm fat.
How Does One Know That He Or She Has Arm Fat?
The fact is if a person has arm fat, he probably has fat all over the body. There are very few cases where you see the fat only accumulate around your arm. It may be more visible around the arms but the reality is that the fat will be everywhere around. Anything around more than thirty percent of body fat is something where one can say a person is visibly fat. This will be the amount of visceral fat in the body.
Are There Any Home Workout Tips To Lose Arm Fat?
There is a myth that spot reduction can be done. Spot reduction with the help of workouts cannot be done. If you do a lot of yoga or a lot of gym only to reduce the fat around your arms, you will reduce the body fat from all over your body and not just your arms.
Another major thing which people often get confused about is between losing fat and gaining muscles. In order to tone your body, you try to grow muscle. You can work out and do your arm exercises and the tissues break and when the body finds the protein, it will rebuild those muscles. So, repairing the tissues helps in the growth of the muscles. And this is not applicable only to arm muscles but it is applicable for the total body. But stop spot muscle building is possible. For example – if a person goes to gym and only does arm exercises, of course the person can build up more visible muscles in the arms but spot reduction of fat is not possible with the help of workouts. So, if you are losing weight from everywhere, you are losing it from all parts of your body. You can do a lot of things to tone your arms. You can work on your biceps and triceps.
