Push ups. When I started doing them 2 years ago I could barely do 1. I gradually worked my way up and now I do 20-25 every day and it’s the only thing that has helped my arms look toned.

Weights. Weights weights weights weights weights. Don’t be afraid to get heavier and heavier dumbbells as you get stronger, it takes a lot for most women to bulk up. I never saw much in terms of weightloss results in general, but definitely in arm fat, until I started using weights in my workouts.

pushups, pullups and dips.

If you want to get rid of fat, cardio.  I would do a bootcamp-type workout, that way you get your cardio plus an overall body workout within an hour.

Definitely weights. Even light weights with 3 sets of 12 reps each – biceps, triceps, chest and shoulders. Do them for about 2 months and you should see results.

I agree with other gals: cardio and push-ups 🙂

@omglauren:  Weights, weights, weights and cardio, cardio, cardio! I would specifically suggest pull ups, dips, bicep curls, and pretty much any tricep exercise there is. Lifting weights is awesome, but if you wanna see the muscle you are creating, do cardio to get rid of any extra “love” that may be on top of them 🙂 good luck

Yep, cardio to decrease body fat and push ups are great! You can also do pushup variations- tricep pushups, walking pushups, etc (google them for videos).

@Diamondgurl:  +1 – cardio. You have more weight to lose – you can’t just spot-shrink your arms.
