Chicken wings, or that ‘wobbly’ part of the upper arm, is very common in women especially as we move into our 30’s. It doesn’t even have to be a reflection of being overweight, however if you don’t use your arms and keep them toned, you will start to notice them wobble and shake more and more over time.
If chicken wings is something that you are experiencing at the moment, then don’t worry, I have the cure! There are some simple steps you can take to help tone your arms and get them (and keep them) taut and tight once more!
- It is always a good idea to first reflect on your diet. Naturally a diet high in bad fats and sugars will increase the amount of fat that is deposited in this region, however another factor is your sodium intake. Salt causes water retention and a common place to experience water retention is, that’s right… Your arms! So reduce your salt intake, opt for fresh, healthy foods and drink plenty of water!
- Regular cardio exercise will not only help you burn through the calories, they will also help stimulate the many other systems of your body, including your circulatory system, your metabolic system and your cardiovascular system, all of which play a role in the distribution of fat cells.
