How To Get Rid Of Underarm Jiggle

One problem area that many women seem to have is the underarm jiggle.  The underarm is an area of the body where women naturally tend to store body fat. When you gain weight, underarm jiggle is one of the first things that you'll notice.

Fortunately, with a few quick, simple exercises, you can reduce your underarm jiggle. With the exercises listed below, you'll be firmer and look fabulous wearing any sleeveless shirt or dress.

Tricep Extensions

Tricep extensions will zero in and target the underarm area. To perform a tricep extension, raise a weight above the head with both hands and then slowly lower the weight down behind the head towards the shoulders. If you are on a budget and cannot afford to buy weights, you can use a canned good, or any object that weighs over 2 pounds and fits comfortably in your palm.

After you lower the weight down behind your head, pause for a second when you get as low as you can and then reverse the direction straightening up the elbows to complete the rep.

After doing a few tricep extensions, your arm will fill fatigued. Most of the muscle fatique will be felt right in the back of the arms while doing this exercise. This is important to notice because it is a sign that you are doing the exercise correctly.

Triangle Push-Ups

Triangle push-ups will also help trim underarm giggle.  For this exercise you are going to place your hands in a triangle position on the floor and then begin to do push-up.

Using this position rather than having the hands spaced shoulder width apart like you would in a standard push-up will place more emphasis on the triceps in the back of the arms.

Interval Cardio

Interval cardio is important because in order to really make underarm jiggle disappear, you will have to decrease your overall level of body fat. One of the best ways to reduce overall body fat is with a good diet and some interval training.

If you pair interval training with your arm toning exercises, then you will see slimmer arms in a few weeks.

Chair Dips

Chair dips are great exercises to add to a home workout session.  Simply place your hands on the edge of a bench or chair and then with the feet placed hip width in front of you, begin to lower the elbows as you sink the body down towards the floor.

Once your elbows are at about 90 degrees, press up once again to complete the rep.

So there you have all the information you need to know to zap underarm jiggle and feel more confident about the way your upper body looks.

We'll teach you how to #LiveTo100!
