How to Get Rid of “Flabby Arms” Safely

Are you tired of doing what seems like endless exercises to help tighten and tone up your arms? You are not alone!


Arms with loose skin also known as “Flabby Arms” (Bat Wings) are very common among many people (men and women) and it can become more prevalent especially as we age. The elasticity of our skin can deteriorate in many areas which is completely natural but dealing with extra skin in our arms seems to be one of the most troublesome areas.

It is important to remember that we are all built differently and what might work for one person may not always work for someone else but luckily there are a few things you can work on to help curb this issue in a safe and healthy manner.
