Walk into any gym, ask what are the best exercises to lose arm fat and you’ll get a different answer from everybody. Even the so called “experts” won’t agree.
What will happen to you as a result? A serious case of analysis paralysis. In this day and age, clear-cut information is more valuable than ever!
And the key to success is to take action as soon as you discover new information. This is called speed of implementation. The most successful people in the world have the highest speeds of implementation, so don’t get paralyzed!
To help prevent you come getting paralyzed, I have decided to review as many arm exercises as possible. Today I will review reverse curls:
1. Snap-shot: Reverse curls are a specialized exercise for targeting the top portion of the forearms. You don’t see too many women doing them. Unfortunately, the overemphasis on the forearm area prevents this exercise from being a top-tier arm fat reducer.
2. Technique: Strand erect and grasp a barbell with an overhand grip and make sure to keep your abs very tight. Exhale and raise the barbell. Then slowly lower it.
3. Common mistakes: Allowing the wrists to bend upwards and downwards. Letting the weight of the body shift from the heel of the foot to the ball of the foot. And using momentum to get the weight up.
4. To do or not to do: This is not a good exercise for losing arm fat and toning the upper arm area. That area where the jiggle lives… It focuses on the forearms way too much. If you want rapid arm toning, you are much better served doing other exercises that specifically target the upper portion of your arms.
Want to lose arm fat fast? Then stick to exercises that work and disregard the hype. The more you learn, the better off you’ll be. And you’ll get faster results. But most importantly, you won’t go around in circles like most women!
