One of the biggest problem areas for some people is the back of the arms. Sometimes the fat on the back of the arms just has a lot to do with genetics, but fortunately there are several things to do to get rid of that unwanted arm fat and tighten the muscles in that area. One of these things to do is a jump rope workout.
By making a few adjustments to a regular jump rope workout, you can really target your arms and get a great triceps workout. The first time I experimented with this, I could tell the next day that my triceps had gotten an unbelievable workout. They were pretty sore!!
You start out by doing a normal jump rope workout, and then you gradually start to hold your arms out away from your body while continuing to swing the rope. You’ll feel the burn in your arms after just a few seconds of this. Swing the rope with your arms away from, the side of your body for 20-30 seconds or as long as you can. Then you lower your arms back to your side and just use your wrists for the most part to swing the rope.
After ten, or so, seconds begin to raise your arms again and swing the rope with your arms in this raised position for another 20-30 seconds and then lower them back down to your body and swing the rope with your wrists. Do as many repetitions of these motions as you can during your jump rope workout and you will begin to see a difference in the ‘flabbiness’ of the back of the arms.
