Flabby Arms & Arm Fat…Should I Be Worried?

Flabby Arms – when to worry and how to fix them!

Flabby arms are due to a combination of factors associated with aging and genetics, including an increase in overall body fat mass (a greater portion of which localizes to the arms in some women due to genetics), loss of muscle mass in the arms associated with aging and reduced activity (causing the skin to hang more loosely on the upper arm) and a loss of elasticity in the skin due to both aging and sun damage from UV radiation, according to San Francisco dermatologist Dr. Richard Glogau.

This hidden fat poses the biggest health risk. Excessive body fat increases your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and certain cancers.

How do I know I have excessive arm fat? If you pinch your arms and it looks similar to the pictures below, you likely have flabby arms.

How to combat Flabby Arms

  1. Introduce HIIT and weight lifting in your exercise routine.
  2. Reduce your calorie intake and at the same time, ensure you do not have a deficit. Many times, people go on low carb, no carb, high protein diets. However, it is very important to make sure that you get what your body needs in terms of vitamins and minerals for it to function properly.
  3. Invest in daily disciplined sleeping habits. Sleep, when lost or forfeited, cannot be recovered!
