Batwings Are Great For Batmobiles, Not Arms!
Anyway, I have been reading and researching on how to give the batwings the boot (as much as possible, anyway.) And it seems that cardio, overall weight training, eating more protein and less carbs, and burning overall body fat is the answer. From everything I have read, there is no such thing as a way to get rid of fat in a concentrated area. I read that targeted triceps exercises won't get the results one might expect.
Still, I love doing the arm exercises. I FEEL like I am doing something proactive and that helps my motivation. When Sergeant Major Nina arrived yesterday I was on the treadmill and the first thing she said was that she could really see definition in my arms. w00t! That's incentive enough for me to keep doing the exercises anyway! I have NEVER had definition in my arms. Hell, I couldn't even FIND my shoulder bone before and now it's starting to peek out and say hello! :-)
So I'm going to crunch and lunge and press and lift and squeeze and completely disregard my research that says doing so won't help. I'm of the opinion that doing nothing is a guaranteed FAIL, and that doing everything I can will leave me feeling at peace, no matter what the outcome.
Get ready triceps, you may become the most clearly defined, toned and muscular flabbyflappers in history!
