Grab Your Toning Ball for 5 Exercises To Lose Arm Fat Fast

Do you struggle to lose fat around the arms? If so, you are not alone. The arms—especially the triceps area as well as the biceps—can be "problem areas" for many people. (Trust me—it's not just your winter gut that can be stubborn!) Even if you're losing weight, you cannot control the specific areas your body chooses to burn fat first. The good news is, adding muscle to the arm area as you are losing weight helps increase the overall lean-ness in the area. That's why we've rounded up five exercises to lose arm fat fast. Grab your toning ball, and let's get started!

Pilates toning balls are an excellent way to combine fat-burning with muscle-building. Since the exercises require you to hold the ball, they activate muscles in your arms. However, because the exercises activate many other muscles as well, performing them as a circuit gives you the added benefit of increased calorie burning, helping your weight loss and muscle endurance.

Now, let's get into my five best-recommended exercises to lose arm fat fast. Perform each exercise for 30 to 60 seconds. Rest for 20 to 30 seconds, and move to the next exercise. Repeat for three to five rounds.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
