Lose Weight on Upper Body

Do you have tendency to put weight on the upper body? Don’t worry. We all have our ‘weak spots’ which become fat-deposit zones. But with the right exercise and diet regimen, your upper body can be brought back to shape.

But do remember that your upper body will always be broader than your lower body.

Here’s what you should do:

  • Regular Aerobic Activity: For example, on the cross trainer, which uses simultaneous arm and leg movement, will be good for you. Do this for at least 45 minutes, for five days a week, changing the intensity.
  • Swimming: Swimming is an excellent workout in the summer as your upper body does a lot of work in the water. Don’t forget to exercise the arms and shoulders standing in the water after swimming. Spending 45 minutes on this should do you good.
  • Resistance Training Exercises: You need to use resistance bands or dumb-bells to tone and tighten your muscles and give shape to the upper body. The resistance should be low and the repetitions high. Make sure the exercises engage all the major muscle groups such as biceps, triceps, shoulders, upper and middle back and chest. It is good to seek professional guidance before you do this on your own.
  • Do Yoga: Yoga could be another good option for you. It is excellent for toning up the whole body and getting the lean look. Ideally you need to change your workout regime frequently to get the best results.

Correct your posture frequently during the day by pulling your shoulders back and down with your chin up and chest out. With extra fat deposit on the back, one tends to look slightly stooped.

You can try these tips to get rid of extra fats on the upper body.
