Like just lower belly fat, stubborn arm fat is also difficult to reduce. No matter how hard you try, getting rid of arm fat seems to be impossible. However, there are many exercises that can help you to reduce arm fat. Some yoga asanas are quite helpful to get toned arms.
These yoga asanas target your upper back and arms. So, lay down your yoga mat and get ready to practice the following yoga asanas to get rid of arm fat. Have a look at these yoga asanas suggested by Yoga master, philanthropist, Religious guru and Lifestyle coach Grand Master Akshar.
Grand Master Akshar says, “Excess fat on the arms can be unnatural and can lead to a lack of confidence. If fat has accumulated on the hands as a result of total weight gain, then yoga can help in managing the weight. Here are some ways in which we can lose weight with our hands. Along with the following asanas, you should also be paying attention to your diet.”
Try to do these asanas twice a day in the morning and once in the evening. Focus on your breathing and try to practice awareness on your breath while doing these asanas. Repeat each asana 5 times and do this entire set twice a day for best results.
