Training Question: How Can I Reduce The Size Of My Big, Flabby Arms And My Giant Calves?

Hello. Thank god you guys created this web site because I have joined the gym. I'm embarrassed to asked questions in the gym, so I would like to ask you these questions:

1. I have big flabby arms. I have always wanted to loose weight in that area, however there is no way that I could. I can never wear a tank-top or anything sleeveless in the summer, which is coming soon. I am lifting weights, but I don't know if I should put a lot of weights or put little weights and do lots of reps of 20 in a set of 3. And how many times a week I should do it?

2. My other problem is my calves. They are huuuuuge. What exercise should I do? I have done standing on my toes and lifting, but somehow it seems that they just get bigger and bigger.

3. And my hips, how to reduce them.

Thank you.

Sincerely P.S. Hope you can help me.

Answer #1

Hi. I think I have the answers to your problems.

1. You should do curls for your big, flabby arms. You should find a weight that you are comfortable with and do it 3 sets of 15-20. You do this every other day. After you get used to this, you start doing it 3 days in a row with 1 day of rest in between.

2. Duh! If you keep working out your calves, they are just going to get bigger. You should start running a mile everyday at half-speed until you get used to it. You can still do calf-raises, but do it with a light weight at 3 sets of 15-20 reps.

3. For you hips, you should run and do light weights at 3 sets of 15-20 reps.

Good luck. Hope this information will be helpful.

Answer #2

First of all, I think that you should begin by concentrating on your eating. This is the start of what will (in the long run) help you loose your flabbiness and your hips. Second of all, do not go to the gym just to work out your arms, hips and calves. Go to the gym to do a full body workout that will improve your overall physique.

To start off, go to the gym twice a week, and when you get used to the intensity of your workouts add an extra day. To lose weight off your arms, I recommend 3 sets of no less than 15 reps and no more than twenty. To loose your hips and calves, do not do any weights on them unless you want to tone up or gain weight (don't even stand on your toes because you will gain muscle mass). Do lots of cardiovascular exercise, as that will burn calories and fat.

Good luck.
