eliminate the flaccidity arms

There are many benefits to EMS, such as electro-stimulation training to eliminate flaccidity in the arms.

One of the great fears of many people is the flaccidity and not only the flaccidity of the legs, abdomen or glutes. The flaccidity of the arms joins this list of problem areas for all people who want to achieve a beautiful figure.

Flabby arms

The flaccidity in the arms occurs when there is a disproportion between the muscles and the growth of the skin. That is why women are affected more often than men as they have about 15% less muscle mass.

Other reasons for flabby arms can be:

  • Deterioration of collagen and elastin as a result of aging or bad habits.
  • Excessive sunshine.
  • Significant weight loss.
  • Tobacco.
  • Excess alcohol.
  • Low-protein, high-carbohydrate diet.
  • Genetic predisposition.
  • Lack of physical activity.

Degrees of flaccidity in the arms

Slight flaccidity: That which in neutral position is not noticeable, but in certain postures is evident.

Moderate flaccidity: In neutral position the flaccidity is noticed, but the contour of the arms does not change.

Intense flaccidity: The sagging of the skin becomes evident in neutral position and distorts the contour of the silhouette.

How to eliminate flaccidity in the arms with electrostimulation?

More and more people are going to sports or aesthetic centers in search of a solution to this problem. However, we have good news and that is that with full body electrostimulation training you can train this flaccidity of the arms as well as the legs, glutes and practically the whole body.

To achieve visible results in your arm workouts, you only need to perform an EMS training session always under the supervision of a professional or following the recommendations of a specialist.

Electrostimulation will help you to strengthen, tone and firm your muscles and skin in specific muscle groups thanks to the combined work between electrical impulses and voluntary muscle tension.

Eliminate flabby arms with EMS Training 

Muscle contractions during EMS training stimulate blood circulation in the skin as well as collagen production. This has several effects. On the one hand, the skin is specifically tightened and revitalized through constant training and often feels much firmer and tighter. Both blood circulation and the optimal supply of collagen are felt very quickly and durably on the skin. EMS training makes the skin look significantly better.

Here are three exercises to get firm arms

Thanks to electrostimulation you can get firm arms by doing these 3 exercises without the need to lift weights.

1. Biceps curls

Upright position, feet hip-width apart, toes pointing slightly outward, knees slightly bent. The upper body is tense and the arms are stretched at the sides of the body. In both hands you can hold an anti-stress ball or any object that will help you. The upper arms do not move and remain close to the body. The forearms, on the other hand, are bent so that the palms are pointing inward. Now bend your arms at the elbow joint and bring your hands towards your shoulders. Then slowly and in a controlled manner, return to the starting position. Three sets of eight to twelve repetitions.

2. Triceps kicks

Sit up straight in a chair and tense your upper body… Extend this arm upward so that your elbow is about next to your ear. The arm is not pushed all the way down. Now lower your forearm back and bring your hands behind your head. Then bring the arm back to the extended starting position. The other hand fixes the elbow of the working arm. Three sets of eight to twelve repetitions per side.

3. Lateral Lift

Stand with your legs hip-width apart and your upper body upright. Raise your arms to shoulder height, palms facing up. Now bend your arms and slowly push your hands with the dumbbells towards your shoulders.

Promote firming of the arms with diet

Diet also plays an important role in defining the upper arms. Not only is a low-calorie diet bad for your health because it slows down your metabolism, but you can lose little more than water and muscle mass on it. Regular exercise requires a healthy diet. Your body needs protein to build muscle, preferably from lean meat, fish, dairy products, and soy or legumes. This will even help you lose weight in the long run, as muscles stimulate fat burning.

Frequently asked questions about sagging arms

How many days do you have to train arms?

The frequency and number of days you should train your arms depends on your personal goals, current fitness level, and the training program you are following. Here are some general guidelines:

  • Strength training for muscle development: If your goal is to build muscle mass in your arms, it is generally recommended to train your arms at least two to three times a week. You can divide your training sessions into different muscle groups, such as arms and shoulders on one day, legs and back on another day, and chest and triceps on another day. This allows the muscles time to recover between sessions.
  • Maintenance training: If your goal is to keep your arms in their current condition, a training frequency of once or twice a week may be sufficient. In this case, make sure your workouts are effective and challenging.
  • Specific training: If you are preparing for a sport or activity that requires a specific focus on the arms, your training program may vary. For example, weightlifters and bodybuilders often train their arms more frequently due to their muscle development goals.
  • Recovery: It is important to allow muscles to recover between training sessions. Adequate rest is essential for muscle growth and repair. Make sure to include rest days in your weekly routine.
  • Variation: Changing your training routine from time to time can be beneficial to avoid adaptation and stagnation. You can incorporate different exercises, change the intensity or the number of series and repetitions.

Remember that proper nutrition and rest are key components to achieving results in arm training and any fitness program. If you are new to strength training, consider consulting a personal trainer or health professional to ensure you are following a program suitable for your individual goals and needs.

How can you treat sagging arms?

Sagging arms, often known as “bat wings,” can be treated through a combination of approaches including exercise, diet, skin care and, in some cases, medical procedures. Here are some strategies to address sagging arms:

  • Resistance exercise: Performing resistance exercises, such as weight lifting or resistance band training, can help tone and strengthen arm muscles. Specific exercises that target the triceps, biceps, and shoulders are especially helpful in improving the appearance of your arms. Some examples of exercises are tricep curls, bicep curls, and shoulder presses.
  • Cardiovascular: Cardiovascular exercise, such as running, swimming, or cycling, can help burn fat throughout the body, including the arms. Reducing body fat can improve the appearance of sagging.
  • Healthy diet: Maintaining a balanced and healthy diet is essential to reduce body fat. Avoid excess calories and eat foods rich in lean proteins, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Drinking enough water is also important for skin health.
  • Hydration: Applying lotions or moisturizing creams to your arms can help keep your skin soft and improve its elasticity.
  • Sun protection: Prolonged exposure to the sun can damage the skin and contribute to sagging. Use sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
  • Supplements: Some people find benefits in using supplements that contain collagen, elastin, and other skin nutrients. Consult a health professional before taking any supplements.
  • Cosmetic surgery or procedures: In extreme cases of sagging, some people opt for medical procedures such as brachioplasty (arm surgery) to remove excess skin and fat. This should be considered an option of last resort and should be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon.

Remember that sagging arms can be caused by genetic factors, aging, rapid weight loss or hormonal changes, and the response to treatment may vary from person to person. It is important to speak with a doctor or fitness trainer before beginning any exercise program or treatment to address sagging arms, as they can provide specific guidance based on your needs and goals.
