The problem is that you hate showing your upper arms! You blame your ‘bingo wings’ and how you just can’t seem to get rid of the loose skin. You want to have toned arms – am I right?
In my group classes, the women mention their ‘bingo wings’ quite a lot! I’d even say it’s the top 3 problem areas, along with belly fat and thighs.
Do you know where the term originated? I’ll let you ponder on that one for now.
‘Bingo wings’ (or, as described by some of the women, is the loose skin on the back of your arms) are an area of the body that lots of women want to address.
They want to lose that excess skin, tone up the muscles in the arms and make them stronger. It seems even more important during the party season.
The thing is though…
It’s not a problem which is so easy to solve.
You would expect a fitness professional to suggest an instant solution of various arm exercises, while neglecting the rest of the body.
Unfortunately, you can’t just target one part of the body when it comes to fat loss or toning. Sure, you can do lots of Tricep Dips but you must not neglect other muscles in the body.
I include exercises for the triceps (the muscles that shape your arms) in my metabolic/toning sessions but the rest of the body gets a blast too!
So what do you do then?
Here’s a little routine you can do at home, which will take you about 12 minutes. It will target your ‘bingo wings’ but will provide a whole-body workout so that you’re not missing out.
- Tricep Dip – watch the video: HERE
- Squat – watch the video: HERE
- Tricep Dip – repeat 1
- Calf Raise – watch the video: HERE
- Tricep Press – watch the video: HERE
- Alternate Forward Lunge – watch the video: HERE
Perform each exercise for 30 seconds, 30 seconds rest. Repeat the above 6 exercises one more time.
The workout mainly concentrates on your arms but also works your leg muscles so creating a whole-body metabolic workout.
Remember that whatever exercise you do is only effective if your eating is in order. There’s no point in killing it in the exercise department if you continue to consume a poor diet.
Let me know how you get on with the workout. It’s only 12 minutes of your time and it may help to shape your arms ready for your Christmas party (not long so go and blast it)!
