No matter how much effort you put in, that jiggly bit on your underarm just doesn’t seem to be going away. So what is it that you are doing wrong or maybe not enough of? Let’s find out.
Too much on one area
While bicep curls, bench dips, and tricep presses add muscles and tone your arms, focusing on just one or specific areas and not putting in equal effort into other body parts and watching your overall calorie intake will leave you less than desirable outcome. For all your effort to come to fruition, you need to balance your workout for your entire body. The more fat you lose, the more toned your arms will appear – it’s as simple as that.
Don’t forget to mind what you eat as well which means eating right and reducing unnecessary calories.
Ramp it up
Mixing up your workout routines with equal cardio and weightlifting components is a good start. Better yet, don’t forget to add some high-intensity interval training sessions into your cardio routine! Ramping up intensity will undoubtedly burn fats and calories fast as well as increase your endurance. Short sprints and full body workouts such as burpees and planks are just some that will help you reap the rewards of your effort.
What’s your frequency?
Exercising once or twice a week won’t cut it. Your arms will still be flabby, and you’ll just be wasting time. While it’s true that the body needs ample rest to repair and build muscles, working out three to five times a week won’t hurt. Having no time for the gym or no gym equipment at home are no excuses either. There are exercises such as chair dips, push-ups, and squats that you can always do at home or even in office.
Manage and reduce stress
Chronic stress can actually slow down and even prevent you from successfully losing weight despite regular exercise and eating right. It reduces testosterone levels, making it harder to build muscles. The onset of stress also triggers the body to release the hormone cortisol which increases appetite, encouraging the storage of fat in the thighs, hips, and arms.
Regular exercise and a healthy diet are both good for the body and health but at times can only do so much when it comes to addressing specific problem area. The CoolAdvantage Petite by Zeltiq, under the CoolSculpting system, can address unwanted fat in your specific areas of concern.

It’s customised to treat the unique shape of the underarm area and uses the same cryolipolysis technology by CoolSculpting to freeze stubborn fat for a more contoured and toned appearance.
