As a longtime flapper of batwings, I know the associated struggles all too well.
I have googled all sorts of diets, exercises, slimming creams, sauna belts, and even looked up information on arm lifts while shopping for blazers, shrugs, and half-sleeved tops to cover up in the meantime.
After trying a bunch of arm reduction techniques, my bingo arms are now an on and off feature in my life. And I’d like to believe that I know a thing or two about the efficacy, risks, and pros and cons of the various ways to get rid of your bingo arms.
However, tempting it may seem, I haven’t gotten to the surgery stage as yet. What I found really effective and non-invasive was, of course, the right combination of diet and exercise.
Diet control is really a no-brainer- just avoid fattening foods and eat in moderation. Doing the right kind of exercise to reduce your flabby arms, is I think slightly more complicated. Moreover, all batwings are not created equal. For all of our different kinds of flabby arms, we need different combinations of techniques but no matter which route you take, these 5 no-gym arm workouts will get you there faster.
