I heard that it really isn’t possible to “tone” if you’re overweight, because it will tone the muscles, and if you’re fat then the fat will just cover up the tone-ness.
If what I just said makes sense
I’m currently around street size 18 (will probably be smaller by my Nov. ’14 wedding) but I’m just thinking about the parts of my body that will be “showing” – my upper back and arms. Not a strapless dress, but I’m planning on having small off-shoulder sleeves most likely.
My issue is that my upper body is a lot smaller than my lower body, and then WHA-BAM my arms are disproportionately bigger/bumpier than the rest of my upper body. I don’t need to have them teeny tiny, definitely not, but I would like to exercise the lumps away, if that makes sense. They can be bigger, fine, but not weirdly squashly looking. Also, I’m hoping that I won’t get the “overhang” fat from my upper back.<br /><br />So, are you bigger with toned arms? What are your favorite arm toning exercises, or toning exercises in general? I want to figure out what really works to tone, if the individual in question is overweight. Feel free to share pics, because when I Google, I just get weird results 0.0
