You can also reduce arm fat by performing exercises such as triceps extensions and close-grip bench presses. The simplest way to get rid of flabby arms is to perform push-ups. The triceps benefit most from close grip push-ups. For this you need to lie on your stomach. Place the palms on the ground just beneath the shoulders. Then lift the body with your legs extended back. The body should remain straight with only the toes touching the floor. Exert pressure on the triceps by bending the elbows slightly. Then lower the body as much as you can without touching the floor. Pause and then push up again. Repeat the movement. You can increase the number of repetitions gradually. All these exercise assist in reducing fat from the arms.

A yoga pose that is beneficial in toning and strengthening the arm muscles is Bakasana (Crane Pose). For this you need to lower your body in a squat. You can also bring the elbows to the knees if you find squatting difficult. Once in the squatting position, press the forearms against the inner thighs and breathe deeply. Then place the hands in from of your body, spreading the dingers. There should be equal weight on the palms and fingers. Then bearing most of your weight on the arms bring your knees near your upper arms and lift your feet on your toes. Look ahead of you and slowly lift your toes above the mat and maintain your balance. This may take some practice initially, but once you master it, you will find that it strengthens the arms tremendously.
