3 Toning Moves to Tackle Armpit Fat for Good

There are areas of the arms we all know and work on regularly—biceps, triceps, shoulders—but there are even more tiny, hard-to-reach areas that most movements don’t target. 
The underarm is one such area, where the upper arm and chest meet. It’s commonly known as “armpit fat” amongst women, where excess skin shows in a dress or bra. So you want to know how to get rid of armpit fat? It's a particularly hard spot to tone because most arm exercises are one dimensional and only focus on the main areas, but our Method can help. The moves we've picked to help tone this area require two pieces of equipment: the 2-lb. hand weights and the p.band. Both offer light but effective resistance and the ability to work freely through each movement. 

Three Moves To Tone Your Underarms:

The Hugger

How to Tone Under Arm - The Hugger | P.volve

Start with one leg back, heel up, one weight in each hand. Bring arms up to 90 degree angle, elbows out, and hands facing each other. Keep one hand higher than the other, squeeze arms into a hugging motion, and engage armpit area. Stretch back out to starting position.
Repeat 8 times.

Taking Flight

How to Tone Under Arm - Taking Flight | P.volve

Start with arms out in front of you, one weight in each hand. As you step leg back, stretch the arms up and out into a flying stance. Squeeze armpit area as you step back in and bring arms back down to starting position.
Repeat 8 times.

Kneeling Pull

How to Tone Under Arm - Kneeling Pull | P.volve

Start on knees with one hand secure in the p.band and the other end under one knee. Angle the secured arm inward with a 90 degree angle and squeeze up one inch.
Repeat 8 times on both sides.
