That can be targeted with arm and back exercises. I’d say to do weight training for sure. If you belong to a gym get into the group ex classes that do high rep, low weight weight lifting and other toning classes. A lot of body weighted exercseis like all variations of pushups are also great. You want to target your biceps, trcieps, and shoulders while doing are exercises as well as your entire back.

Liss13:  I’m sorry to tell you this but you absolutely cannot spot-reduce. You can google “spot reduce myth” and find out why. If you wanna get rid of any fat, you need to lower your over all body fat. This is of course reached by diet and exercise.The type of exercise you should be doing for this HIIT cardio. I can suggest 30 day shred by Jillian Michaels. It’s just a 20 minute workout you can add to your gym routine and this will get your metabolism faster, and it will burn calories. Weight training is of course really amazing for lots of things, for starters you burn more calories if you have more muscle, but like I said, it’s not gonna help you lose fat in one specific area. I hope this helps!

To lose fat you need to eat less than your body burns and (to optimise composition) do some kind of progressive resistance training (weights/bodyweight). 

I do all sorts of upper body strength exercises and yoga and I still have armpit fat, though, because I’m still kinda chubby.

PiYo worked for me! It’s a yoga/Pilates hybrid 🙂

Liss13:  Weight training is key if you want to get rid of that arm fat. I suggest starting with 5 pound weights in each hand, and working your way up gradually to 15 pound weights in each hand.

I am a personal trainer and would definitely recommend an hour 3X a week of HEAVY weight upper body exercises. spend an hour on each body part – chest, back, shoulders. 

My personal suggestion would be doing a lot of chest press, flys, shoulder exercises front lat raises, side raises, shoulder presses, just an FYI – lat pull downs are awesome but they are for your back – and HITT cardio for fat loss 

here is a good introductory article from body building.com
