Doing This for Your Armpit Fat
Makes All the Difference

From tank tops to armless tees, these apparel pieces can be a nightmare if you’re self-conscious about the fat that stubbornly collects under your armpits. This particular part of your arm does not normally get a lot of use, and, to make matters worse, everything from hormones to genetics can make fat more likely to collect in this area. If you’re tired of dealing with armpit fat and not feeling comfortable in the clothes you want to wear, you can take control and target this fat-prone area.

Watch your diet

Subcutaneous fat is something your body needs, but when you are overweight or obese, subcutaneous fat often makes its way to the armpits and hangs out there for the long term. If you have recently gained weight, don’t be surprised if you start seeing more fatty tissue hanging out under your arms. Adjusting your diet can make a huge difference in your overall body fat ratio, but also how much fat you have collected under your arms. A few simple changes you could make to keep your body fat in check include:

  • Up your water intake Studies show that drinking just 500 ml of water 30 minutes before meals may reduce body weight
  • Replace one meal a day with a protein shake – A meal replacement protein shake in a shaker cup gives you nutrition and fuel without calories
  • Cut sugar – Sugar is empty calories and can actually make you feel hungrier

The greens + protein has been an all-time favorite for me! it’s PACKED with nutrients! And with all the various proprietary blends it offers it makes a great meal-replacement in my opinion. I go back & forth between this protein for meals and their whey isolate for post workout recovery. Great stuff and tastes phenomenal!

Hands down, the best protein I’ve ever had! Reminds me of the ‘green tea boba’ from Urth Cafe. I can’t do whey protein, therefore Protein + Greens has been my go to for the past 2 years. I get my plant protein, probiotics, multivitamins & more with only 80cals, 0 carbs & zero sugar! 🙌🏽

Greens and protein had become my favorite on the go meal. I’m always running around and sometimes don’t have time to eat breakfast or have time to eat after the gym. So the greens and protein comes to my rescue as a meal replacement and I feel full for a few hours until I finally have time to eat an actual meal. But the greens and protein provides me with the protein and veggies I need. Not to mention it’s so easy to drink just add water and ice and wahlaaaaa you have yourself a delicious shake

try armpit fat exercises

The armpits are notoriously hard to target through exercise, but that is not to say the action is not possible. Here are a few good exercises to try to help break down the stubborn fat to slim your armpits.

Wall Workout for Armpit Fat

Resistance bands with handles are an excellent tool to have in your workout routine. Resistance training is one of the best ways to burn fat and build muscle without putting undue stress on your body. Here is a simple exercise you can do to target armpit fat with resistance bands:

  1. Attach a resistance band to a wall or sturdy anchor around chin height

  2. Grasp the band ends in your hands with your arms at chest height and fully extended outward toward the wall

  3. Slowly pull the resistance band toward you by bending your elbows and tensioning the area beneath your arms

  4. Slowly release the tension and extend your arms

  5. Do 3 sets of 12 and gradually work your way up as your strength grows

Quick tip: Try to keep the height of your elbows aligned with your shoulders while doing this exercise.

Stretch-Pull Armpit Workout

  • Grasping a short resistance band, stretch the band outward at chest height, palms facing up

  • Try to get your arms completely straight out while pulling the blades of your shoulders together

  • Gradually release tension and bring your hands back in front of you

  • Do 3 sets of 12 or more?

A small kettlebell is also a good tool to use to target armpit flab. Here is a good exercise to try.

The Kettlebell Overhead Press

  1. Sit with your spine straight and your core tightened

  2. Grasp a small kettlebell in your hands, weights held at shoulder level, with your elbows bent

  3. Raise the kettlebells with your arms over your head

  4. Slowly lower the weights back into position

Armpit Flab Can Be Stubborn, But Not Impossible

With a little attention to your dietary intake and a few targeting exercises, you can see a major difference in armpit fat. Oftentimes, you will notice a difference in just a few short weeks, so making changes now can mean you will have less flab under your arms in time for that next time you want to go sleeveless without feeling insecure.

Stay vigilant throughout the process-don’t give up! Persistence will pay off. If you need a little help getting what you need to stay in shape, be sure to check out  TC1 Sweat Ignition Workout Gel.
