August Flabby Arm Challenge: Say Bye-Bye To Bat Wings

August is my Flabby Arm Challenge month. I'll do daily exercises to tone and shape my triceps. Thanks to a tip from my trainer, I'm adding a weekly trip to the batting cage as one of my workouts!

August is my Flabby Arm Challenge month. I’ll do daily exercises to tone and shape my triceps. Thanks to a tip from my trainer, I’m adding a weekly trip to the batting cage as one of my workouts!

I chatted with my trainer yesterday about the best toning exercises for my arms. My bat wings (you know the part under your arms that shake when you wave goodbye) are definitely smaller since I started my weight loss journey. Toning and shaping are a priority as I continue to shed pounds.

Sadly we can’t target specific areas of our bodies for weight loss. But you can do some exercises to help give shape to muscles as you lose your body fat.

August Flabby Arm Challenge – (A.K.A. Toning The Triceps)
As part of my August challenge (yes, I’m starting to plan that far ahead!), I’ve decided to focus on my triceps. Below are videos of the exercises I’ll during the month. I’ll rotate which ones I do every other day, but my triceps will get a workout.

During my talk with my trainer she gave me a great idea for the best arm workout – hitting baseballs. Yep, batting practice is one of the best ways to tone your arms. You work 3 key arm muscles – deltoid, biceps and triceps. Your shoulders and core also come along for the ride too.

She told me she likes to go out with a bucket of baseballs, toss each ball in the air and swing away with her bat. Working at it for an hour I can burn up to 250-350 calories. Sweet!

The big pluses – it gets me out of the gym and trying something new in my workout rotation.

Well I don’t have a bucket of baseballs, but I do have several batting cages near me.

My Saturday is open. Maybe after my Weight Watchers meeting I’ll swing away.
