A flat stomach is not alone enough for a fitness freak, even many are worried about a toned structure. Whatever costumes you go with there are certain areas in your body that needs to be in perfect shape to make your outfit fits perfectly for you. One such muscle is your arms. Flabby or big arms can really put you down and ruin your image! They are hard to carry in a slim fit dress and going sleeveless is a huge embarrassment. Both girls and guys have the same problems with their arms. Girls want toned and slim arms, whereas guys want huge muscles. No one likes saggy arms as they make your arms look bigger than they actually are.
Flabby arms are usually the result of accumulation of excess fat, and result in loose, hanging skin in the upward portion of your arms. Your arms are jiggly and look thicker than they actually are. The triceps is the largest muscle located in the back of your arm, and since it makes up most of the rear of your arm, targeting it with isolation exercises is the best way to get rid of those embarrassing flabby arms.
