Here is a question we get nearly every day:
"How can my fitness program burn off my upper - arm fat more quickly?"
Get ready, Beach Season! PPT's science and research department has evaluated the TOP 5 most important steps to ridding yourself of unsightly, unhealthy excess arm fat so that you can look your BEST when it's time to show more skin:
Your Perfect Personal Trainer is maximizing the time that he or she has with you each day. But, just because your session is over doesn't mean your body doesn't need more cardio. Even while your muscles and core recover from exercise, your cardiovascular system will rarely overtrain if you exercise is once (or even more than once) daily. Get at least 5 hours each week of fun cardiovascular exercise, between ad in-addition to your PPT sessions. You'll burn more fat, strengthen your heart and keep your energy levels HIGH between sessions, so the next session is that much more productive!
#4. Stay Hydrated!
What does this have to do with better arms? Science shows that exercisers are often dehydrated, and therefore reducing their total output and calorie-burning. This also leads to poor recovery, which - you guessed it - makes the next workout less effective, also. It's an endless circle. Finally, poor hydration leads to hormone imbalances, which slows fat loss and metabolic gain. Be sure to reach your target numbers for hydration, and call us for health coaching if you don't yet know how much water to drink each day!
#3. Cut Out Fried Foods and Carbonated Beverages
#2. Increase Your Metabolism
PPT has talked with most of our clients about easy ways to incorporate metabolic boosters into their lifestyles, and we can do the same for you! From cold showers to deeper-sleep strategies to consuming cinnamon or green tea, there are hundreds (or possibly thousands?) of simple tricks to improve metabolism and lose fat more quickly. Each one on their own is a small contributor, but if you take the time to incorporate ten, maybe twenty of these into most of your days, your resting metabolism will start to rev up pretty nicely, and that will show in your bodyfat percentage as well as in your upper arm definition!
#1. Follow Your Macronutrients!
This is what is all comes down to, friends! The absolute #1 way to burn off that excess fat around the arms isn't even exercise-related (though that's important too!): It stems from your diet more than anything else! As you know, we ALL have our own macronutrient needs, based on our weight, types of exercise, duration of exercise, lifestyle choices, diagnoses, metabolism, and fitness goals. Everything you put into your mouth makes a difference either toward bodyfat loss or bodyfat gain.
If you don't already know the right quantities for YOU, then let's solve the riddle and empower you to consume the right amounts each day. You'll be THRILLED with what the right macronutrients will do for your upper-arm fat, your confidence, your long-term health, and for everything "you"!
