So in order to get rid of armpit fat or fat from any parts of the body we have to reduce our body fat overall through exercising and also eating a well balanced diet.

A full body workout consists in both cardio and strength training. This can help to reduce body fat and also to get rid of armpit fat.

Effective Workout To Get Rid Of Armpit Fat

This workout will aim to tone the ‘armpit fat’ area through chest exercises which also include shoulders and arm muscles.

It’s pretty intense, so using a heating pad for sore muscles can sooth your after-workout aches and pains and make you feel ready for the next day workout.

So all you’ll need is a pair of moderate weight dumbbells. Just make sure you choose the correct weight for your dumbbells.

You can do these exercises on a mat, on a bench or on a Swiss ball which will make it more challenging. Let’s get started!

1. Chest Press (35 reps)

Chest Press

Here’s how to perform this exercise:

  1. Lie on your back, grab your dumbbells and lift them up to the ceiling. Make sure they are in line with your chest.
  2. Keep your knees up and your feet flat on the floor.
  3. Bring the dumbbells towards your chest, slow and steady.
  4. When you touch the floor with your elbows return slowly to the starting position.
  5. This is one rep.

If you want to get rid of armpit fat, you need to perform:

  • 10 slowly chest press exercises;
  • 10 quickly chest press exercises;
  • 5 slowly;
  • pulse 10 times (half way through);

2. Staggered Push Up (16 reps)

Staggered Push Up

Push ups is one of the best upper body workout and it really tones the entire ‘armpit fat’ area.

Instead of the normal push up, for staggered push up you need to place one arm at the chest level and one arm about 3 inches forward. This will challenge your arms even more.

Do 8 reps on each side.

3. Dumbbell Flies (35 reps)

Dumbbell Flies

You have to do flies to get rid of armpit fat! It’s a must do. These exercises really work on the exact area we want and definitely will tone it up. As you get stronger you’ll want to increase the weight so we recommend using adjustable dumbbells.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Start from the same position as in the first exercise (chest press).
  2. Palms facing in, open it slowly until the upper arm touches the floor then squeeze it up.
  3. Control your moves slowly to incorporate every single chest and arm muscle.

If you want to get rid of armpit fat, you need to perform:

  • 10 slowly fly exercises;
  • 10 quickly fly exercises;
  • 5 slowly flies;
  • pulse 10 times (half way through);

Take a one minute rest between sets and repeat this workout to get rid of armpit fat 2 or 3 times. Do this  2-3 times weekly combined with your total body cardio and strength training.

With consistency you will be able to wear sleeveless tops in no time.

These exercises are not recommended if you’re suffering from armpit pain. If you do, check out this article for more information and consult your doctor.

When it says do 10 reps once you have finished all the exercises that’s one set!
