Do you want toned sexy arms for those sleeveless spring and summer days ? Take some advice from Pamela M. Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP.

You can’t keep them out of sight forever. Buried deep inside your long-sleeved sweaters and tops are your upper limbs. You know, the ones you don’t want to share with the world because they’re jiggly and flap in the breeze. Wouldn’t it be nice to stop hiding and instead put your foot down and declare your right to bare arms? Well, that time is now and yes, you can realize your goal.

First, where does this annoying flappy flesh come from anyway? Well, it’s often a combination of many factors including:

● Genetics: Look at your family members. If there’s a genetic tendency to deposit fat on the arms, then that increases your odds of doing the same. Along those same genetic lines, poor elasticity tends to share the same genes.

● Disuse: If you don’t train your bountiful biceps and terrific triceps, then you not only have floppy muscles, but saggy fat and connective tissue surrounding the muscles.

● Weight Loss: With weight reduction, fat recedes all over the body, including the arms. This fat mass collapse results in baggy skin hang. The more times you go through the weight gain and re-gain cycle, the worse this becomes, challenging even the best elasticity. Shedding over 50 pounds magnifies this problem.
