How to Get Rid of Flabby Arms
Nobody wants the skin on the triceps to be flabby, and especially women. However, as we age our bodies accumulate more fat.
Moreover, we lose collagen, which means that we lose the skin’s elasticity and that fat makes your skin sag in certain parts of the body.
That fat as we grow older more difficult to get rid of. However, although it is difficult, it does not mean it is impossible.
How to Get Rid of Flabby Arms
In order not to have flabby arms on the area of your triceps, you need to focus on healthy nutrition and exercising.
Do not give up if you do not see the results immediately. It takes time, but if you are persistent, you will get there eventually.
For that reason, here are some exercises that will help you get rid of flabby skin, and the only equipment you need is dumbbells.
1. One Arm Push-Up
To do this exercise put your body in a push-up position. Place one of your hands on your back and start doing push-ups with the other hand that is on the floor.
The arm that is on the floor should be in line with your shoulder. Do 3 sets of this exercise and do 10 push-ups in each set.
2. Bent-Over Row
Take a dumbbell in each of your hands and stand with your feet at shoulder-width apart. Bend your upper body in a 45 degrees angle and place your hands straight with the dumbbells in front of you.
Lift your arms up by bending your elbows backwards. As you move your arms you should feel the tension on your triceps. Do the exercise 15 times, take a rest ad do 2 more sets with rest in between.
3. Triceps Extension
You can sit or stand while doing this exercise, but either way, make sure your back is straight all the time. Lift your arms above your head while holding one dumbbell with both of your hands.

You can do one hand at a time, or you can straight your arms backwards together while your palms are facing. Do 3 sets of 10 repetitions.
5. Push Ups
To do a push up lift your body off the ground on your palms and your toes. Make sure your palms are right below your shoulders and your whole back is straight.
Start bending your elbows and bring your body down to the ground as much as you can without touching it. Repeat this exercise in 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions. If you are a beginner you can start with 5 repetitions.
