Get Rid of Bingo Wings Arm Fat

Updated on July 29, 2013

Get Rid of Bingo Wings and Arm Fat For Ever

This lens is one that I know a lot of women can identify with. My arms have always been a problem area, no matter how much weight I lose elsewhere.

So I have been on a quest to discover ways to solve this problem and get my arms into shape so that I can wear sleeveless tops without feeling uncomfortable or covering up with a jacket.

Here are some of the most effective methods I have found so far.

I would love to know if you have found others that work for you.

Easy Exercises to Get Rid of Arm Fat To Give you Sexy, Shapely Arms

There is no magic cure for flabby arms, but this easy, quick exercise routine is pretty close.

It only takes a few minutes a day and if you practice it for a few weeks you will be amazed at the difference it makes.

You don't need very much equipment either, just a pair of dumbbells (each weighing between 1kg and 3kg).

If you don't have dumbells, don't worry you can use plastic bottles filled with water. A 1 litre bottle weighs 1kg when filled with water.

So here goes:

1. Side Lateral Circles

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and hold the dumbbells out to your sides at shoulder height.

Make small circles with your hands.

Aim for 30 seconds of forward circles and 30 seconds of backwards circles.

Take a 15 second rest.

2. Shoulder Presses

Hold the dumbbells at shoulder height with your knuckles facing forwards. Press the dumbbells overhead and then return to the starting position.

Repeat for 30-60 seconds.

Take a 15 second rest.

3. Bent over Lateral Flies

Stand with your feet together and your knees slightly bent. Bend forwards at the waist and hold the dumbbells close to your knees. Bring the dumbbells out to either side with your arms almost straight and keep your back flat.

Return to the starting position.

Repeat for 30-60 seconds.

Take a 15 second rest.

Now repeat the circuit up to 3 times.

In a few weeks time, admire your new firmed up arms and start to wear your sleeveless tops again with pride.

      @Erin Mellor: Absolutely - and this is a favourite method for many people! The only problem is that it restricts what you can wear quite a bit, particularly when it's hot.

      Does wearing long sleeved shirts count?

      I do need to work on my bingo wings (didn't know they were called that). Normally, all of my home improvement projects tend to keep me in pretty great shape. I'm always hauling DIY equipment and supplies. These exercises are just the ticket. Now to find my dumbbells. Thanks for the tips!

      @Judy Filarecki: Losing weight definitely helps, but I need to do the toning exercises because the fat seems to linger.

      I play tennis several times a week and have definitely built up muscles that have reduced the flab. I think what is left is what needs to be reduced by losing more weight and just waiting for my old skin to catch up to the shrinking fat.

      I'm like Lovelifelaughter in that I have slim arms - well, pathetic skinny ones. And yes, definitely bingo wings. My brother calls them my 'flopperty wopperties'. Thanks for this lens!

      I have slim arms but as I haven't been able to exercise much for years they have developed bingo wings. I am just starting to try some arm exercises now. I was doing really well, but got a very nasty couch and had to stop again. I am just trying to restart.

      @Virginia Allain: It was originally a semi-derogatory, semi-humorous nickname for a certain type of overweight woman, no longer in the first flush of youth, with a predeliction for playing the game of bingo and referring to the loose skin under the upper arm. I believe it comes from a TV programme.

      I never heard the term "bingo wings" before. I'm curious where that name came from.

      Good information here. I'm wondering if I dare show this lens to my other half - probably not a good idea!
