It Happens to Almost Everyone

 

Armpit fat may stop you from wearing strapless dresses or tank tops, but underarm fat doesn’t have to be permanent. You can melt armpit fat by developing the muscles in the area. Building the back, chest, triceps and shoulders will help burn fat off your armpits. Performing muscle-building exercises to target your underarms will have you wearing tank tops to show off your new upper body.

Chest Press

Chest press engages your chest and shoulder muscles. Lie back on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Straighten your arms over your chest with your palms up. Bend your arms and lower the dumbbells until your elbows are bent at 90 degrees. Press the weights up and together over your chest. Repeat for three sets of 15 repetitions.

Barbell Bent-over Rows

Barbell bent-over rows work the back and core muscles. Stand slightly bent over with your feet shoulder width apart. Hold a barbell with your palms facing up. Start with your arms hanging straight and perpendicular to the floor. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and bring the barbell back toward your midsection. Bend your elbows at 90 degrees. Lower the barbell down to the starting position. Repeat for three sets of 15 repetitions.

Stability Ball Skull Crushers

Stability ball skull crushers stimulate the triceps, shoulders and core. Sit on a stability ball with a dumbbell in each hand. Walk your feet forward until your head and shoulder blades are resting on the ball. Extend your arms straight over your shoulders. Face your palms toward each other. Bend your elbows to 90 degrees. Press the dumbbells up and return to the starting position. Repeat for three sets of 15 repetitions.

Lateral Raises

Doing lateral raises targets the shoulder muscles. Stand with a dumbbell in each hand. Space your feet shoulder-width apart. Lift your arms up and out to the sides with palms facing down. Raise the dumbbells up to shoulder-height. Hold this position for two counts. Lower your arms down to the starting position. Repeat for three sets of 15 repetitions.

See you at the gym!
