Please, please tell us you are not going to fall into this trap!
There is no way these exercises will target or decrease “stubborn underarm fat”. The body JUST doesn’t work like that! If it did … those who talk a lot would have jaws that look like Arnold Schwarzenegger (in his better days) and be disproportionally muscular. And yet they don’t look this way! Of course exercising a particular muscle will possibly increase it’s size, but it will do NOTHING to the surrounding fat. The first exercise (one-arm push up) is actually somewhat helpful as it works several muscle groups in addition to triceps and therefore burns more energy, but the second one is a complete joke in regards to fat-loss.
Instead go for a fast pace walk, a hike, a swim, a jog, or an exercise class.
Walking or any multi-muscle exercise will be much more helpful in regards to weight and fat loss!
And here is the article and 2 “not-so-miracle” exercises:
(prevention.com by Denise Austin)
“I bet you can’t wait to feel the summer sun warming your bare shoulders and arms. I know I can’t. Ah, but you’re worried about that extra bit of jiggle in your upper arms? Never fear—these two quick, easy exercises will strengthen your triceps and help give you arms that you’ll dare to bare all summer.
Pick up a resistance band at least 5 feet long, and do these moves three times a week (with a rest day between each workout).
A. Lie on left side, with left hand resting on right shoulder. Point right hand fingers toward head, flat on floor in front of chest.
B. Contract abdomen and chest while you push off right hand and lift torso several inches off floor. Slowly lower. Repeat 10 times, then switch sides.
A. Stand with right foot about 2 feet in front of left (don’t lock knees), with the middle of a resistance band under left foot. Grasp ends of band in each hand, and position arms so elbows are bent next to ears and hands are behind head.
B. Slowly extend arms over head, keeping elbows next to ears. Then slowly lower back to starting position. Do 15 reps with right foot forward. Switch legs, then anchor band with right foot, and repeat.Don’t: Let back arch or head or arms fall back.”
