In closing, here are some misconceptions to avoid:
You can’t spot reduce your arms
This is partially true. While you can’t dictate where body fat comes off of first, you can make a body part look more toned. In this case, you need to exercise the muscles in your arms in addition to losing total body fat.
If you lose a lot of weight and don’t exercise your arms, they could still look flabby.
Push-ups are effective for arm-toning
Push-ups are a great exercise for working your chest and shoulders – depending on the distance between your hands. However, there are better exercises for directly toning your arms.
Triceps dips are mandatory
Dips put too much stress on your shoulder’s AC joint and rotator cuff – the risk isn’t worth it. There are safer alternatives like the exercises above.
