How to Tone Your Arms

No one has to be doomed to wearing long-sleeved shirts for life! We’re here to make your dreams of svelte arms come true. Pairing weight loss with a workout targeting your arm muscles can easily help you reach your goal. Ready to tone your arms with the help of the FizzUp trainer?

WHAT TO DO TO TONE YOUR ARMS

The most important thing to remember when you’re trying to tone your arms is that you have to lose weight in this specific area in order to see more muscle definition. But you also have to gain muscle mass in your arms so that you start to see their curves besides burning the layer of fat that’s covering them through cardio workouts.

CAN YOU TONE YOUR ARMS WITH TARGETED WEIGHT LOSS?

Let’s face it: you can’t lose weight in one specific area. Fat is burned throughout your body depending on your age, sex and genes as long as you burn more calories than you consume over time.

With age and changing hormones, women are genetically predisposed to store fat around their arms, which is why they’re considered to be one of the “problem areas.” In any case, the human body burns the newest fat first and the oldest fat last. In a nutshell, you can’t pick and choose the fat you want to burn; you just have to let it burn off in “chronological order.”

Think of your body as a lake and fat as the water inside it. It doesn’t matter if you take out one liter of water in the middle or on the shore; the water’s level will only go down and not leave a hole where the water was removed. Weight loss happens the same way.

TONE YOUR ARMS BY LOSING WEIGHT

When it comes to losing weight, the first thing you should do is take a look at your eating habits. Pay closer attention to your nutrition and try to burn more calories than you consume to help you keep losing weight over time and tone your arms.

Get into a balanced diet with the help of FizzUp Nutrition*. Select meals for the week that are right for your goal to lose weight. Cut out all sugary beverages and eat more vegetables and less processed foods. Get over 150 recipes and nutrition tips with FizzUp’s nutrition coaching* as you learn about the healthiest and most effective eating habits.

Taking small, but triumphant steps will enable you to easily lose weight and keep it off. The next thing you can do is pair a wholesome diet with some cardio to burn even more calories. Activate the Six-Pack Add-on* that uses the HIIT method to achieve a body you can’t help but love.

TONE YOUR ARMS BY BUILDING MUSCLE

Now that FizzUp’s got your nutrition covered, you can tone your arms by pairing it with a personalized workout program. Losing weight will get you thinner arms, but it won’t give you the sculpted definition you crave. That’s why losing weight in this area is key. You can’t choose where you want to lose weight, but you CAN choose where you want to build muscle.

Why not work your biceps and triceps with a program that’s designed to do just that? All it takes is one to two workouts a week to put them to the test for real results. FizzUp brings you a wide range of exercises you can do with just your body weight or with light equipment to get you to your goal:

And don’t forget the Arms Focus*, which we’ve created to tone your arms in less than five minutes per workout. You won’t believe the results! When you work out regularly and always make sure you’re putting enough demand on your muscles, you’re guaranteed to get results. Most women are a lot stronger than they think… Have no fear of pushing your limits with the FizzUp Challenges*. They’ll turn you into a true Wonder Woman!

Another problem that many women face is a lack variety in their workouts, which makes it hard to stay motivated. To stick with your fitness routine and keep making improvements in your body, you need to switch up the exercises you do to change the demands you put on your muscles. For instance, you can trade regular bicep curls for hammer curls or chin-ups to target your biceps.

For your triceps, you can switch between bench dip and push-up variations. Luckily, your FizzUp program puts a ton of variety into your workouts with levels that always change exercises.

Transforming your arms is made so much easier with these tips in mind. It’s never too late to start paying more attention to your diet and level of physical activity, and FizzUp is the perfect tool you can use to achieve that! We bring you the right program for your goal and current fitness level, along with extra workouts specially designed to tone your arms and nutrition coaching* that’s always by your side!
