Eight Easy Exercises To Get Rid Of Arm Flab Without Leaving Your Home

Beauty certainly comes in all shapes and sizes. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to look, as long as you feel good on the inside.

That said, there is a massive amount of money spent on products and surgeries to help people “improve” the way they look.

I have never been one to pay for these products. While I like to look good, I much prefer taking control of my appearance the old-fashioned way: through exercise.

So when I heard that there were easy exercises I could do right at home to help prevent or get rid of arm flab, I knew I’d be trying them out right away.

Just as there are easy exercise methods for getting rid of a double chin, there are things you can do to fight off arm flab from the comfort of your own home.

LittleThings spoke to fitness expert, certified personal trainer, and founder of MJP Fitness, Matt Perfetuo. He gave us eight extremely easy exercises you can try that “will tone and shed unwanted weight.” But he also adds, “Eating properly will help, too. Eat lean, clean, and green foods!”

Scroll through this exclusive list of personal-trainer-approved exercises to see just how easy it is to fight arm flab without expensive treatments or surgeries.
