All women will agree that back fat and underarm flab are the hardest to get rid of. But, this will not be the case if you regularly do the 4 exercises we recommend here. The thing is these 4 simple, yet, highly effective exercises are the best workout you can choose for eliminating back fat and underarm flab, according to fitness experts. What also makes these exercises convenient is that you can easily do them at home, which saves you money on expensive gym membership fees.
For optimal results you should aim at combining regular cardio with targeted exercises. While you can’t deny that the way we store fat greatly depends on genetics, it’s also true that the upper back and underarms are the toughest to tone up. Plus, most workouts are focused on abdominal and leg muscles rather than the back. If you want to refocus your routine, you should do cardio for at least half an hour 3-5 days a week, and take up activities such as rowing or boxing a bag to tone your back muscles. Last, but not least, reduce 500 calories from your daily calorie intake to optimize your fat burning results.
