The Best Exercises to Help You Reduce Armpit Fat

If you have wiggly armpit fat that’s ruining tank tops for you, you aren’t alone.

Many women are stuck wearing long sleeves, sweaters, and cardigans to hide armpit fat. If you’re one of the many, we have amazing news for you. By implementing several exercises that target this area specifically into your workout regimen, you can tighten and tone your upper arms and chest muscles, getting rid of that stubborn armpit fat.

It’s time to ditch the bulky sweater and flaunt those arms!

THE SECRET TO GETTING RID OF STUBBORN ARMPIT FAT

Getting rid of armpit fat is a two-part process.

The first part is to live a well-rounded healthy lifestyle, with lots of cardio. Eating healthy and exercising regularly will help you lose weight and tone your body. This lifestyle, in general, might be enough to help reduce that pesky armpit fat, or get rid of it altogether. Especially during the ORBERA® weight loss program.

The second step is to introduce a few exercises to your workout routine that can help tone this area specifically. These next five exercises will help you to tone and strengthen the muscles in your chest, upper arms, and most importantly, your armpits.

Before you know it, you’ll be wearing sleeveless or strapless dresses and tank tops in no time at all.
