Batwings only look good when you are a superhero in tights, but if you want to wear tank tops, halter tops or sleeveless shirts, those flabby arms can get in the way.
Start losing them by engaging in regular exercise, and spot-correct your triceps with these three great moves proven to tone your arms and tame those unsightly wings. There are of course easier routes to take to tame your flab if you are willing to invest a bit and see immediate results.
One of the most popular options these days is to freeze away fat using cryolipolysis, an FDA-approved lunchtime procedure performed in CoolSculpting Singapore clinics that is painless, non-surgical, and downtime-free. The results can be permanent if coupled with judicious diet and exercise, as discussed below.
The triceps, or the muscles that run the back of the arms, are prone to becoming “bat wings”, that flab that jiggles when you wave your arms. Eliminating that flab can be a challenge, with the most stubborn of fat refusing to budge without surgery performed in aesthetic clinics in Singapore.
But if you are willing to sweat it out, all you need is a pair of dumbbells. To do the exercise, hold the dumbbells while you stand with your feet hip-width apart and knees bent at a slight angle. Hinge forward from the hips and bring the dumbbells close to your chest. Then bend your arms so your elbows are behind your body. Extend your arms behind you, with the palm facing the ceiling. Raise your arms a few inches higher to contract those triceps. Bend elbows and return to start. Do 15 repetitions.
Sports and medical clinic in Singapore highly recommend the Triangle Pushups for visibly toned arms. The triangle push-ups are done similarly like the regular push-ups, except that the position of the hands beneath the shoulders are in a triangle position, with the thumbs and forefingers forming the triangle.
To perform, contract your core, gluteal and quadriceps muscles so your torso stiffens, then align your head with your spine. Make sure your feet are placed together, with your toes pointed towards your shins. Gradually lower your body towards the floor, all the while maintaining a rigid torso and head-spine alignment. Do this until either your chest or chin touches the floor. Maintain the same torso and head-spine position as you press up through your arms until they are fully extended at the elbows. Do 15 repetitions.
Using a low bench, sturdy chair or ledge, sit down and place your hands on either side of your hips. The palms should be resting on the bench while your fingers should hang over the edge. With your feet close together, extend your legs out in front of you, and scoot your buttocks off the bench. Slowly lower your hips until your arms are parallel to the floor. Push yourself up using your hands and not your legs. Repeat 15 times.
For stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise, non-surgical CoolSculpting performed in laser clinics in Singapore promises impressive results. In this procedure, the layer of fat is suctioned and cooled without damaging the skin or nearby tissues. The fat then gradually breaks down and reduced via natural means. The results, which may take up to one to three months to see, can be permanent if the patient observes proper diet and engages in regular physical activity.
