Chair exercises come in all forms and can also be found on YouTube. I have bought some on Amazon. I am physically chalenged so I needed to find something different. These might help you as well.

looking forward to better days ahead by working one day at a time, not giving up, and laying this body at the altar.

Each month I pick a 30 day challenge from pintrest and add that to my activities for the month. This month is an arm challenge. Last month was inner thigh. Adds variety and progressive challenge. There are an endless number of ab challenges and almost as many for arms.

If you're interested but not on pintrest, shoot me a note and I'll send you some!

I just used the SP Workout Finder (locate it by going to "track fitness" and clicking the link) to do some awesome ab/upper body/back exercises. Don't train abs without training your back--the two balance each other out and your a floppy you without a strong back to balance your awesome abs.

I have been doing on Youtube Rebecca Louise's fifteen minute ab routine set in the Galapogos Island and also her 8 minute arm routine. I do them 2 or 3 days a week but just started so not sure of results yet. I also walk 10 miles a day but always stretch to prevent injury so I can keep doing it:) Good luck!

Yoga - sun salutations give you nice abs, arms and back muscles.
This is the only thing I do for my abs and arms and I love how they look.

Maintenance Lessons Learned:
-go on with the healthy lifestyle learned in weight loss phase
-just add healthy foods gradually to stop losing
-work out every day - 30-60 minutes is enough to maintain weight and good mood
-do not try to balance overeating by extreme workouts, it is not going to work
-avoid overeating, instead of satisfaction you get stronger cravings

If the arm flab is fat, you will lose it through proper nutrition and diet.
If the arm flab is loose skin, it will either shrink on its own or you will need surgery.

Strength work will work the muscles underneath, and that is a very good thing to do!

Burning fat is an all-body process, and you can't target where you lose weight from. Energy is delivered to the muscles via the bloodstream, NOT from being absorbed from surrounding fat stores. Doing arm exercises will develop the relevant muscles, but will do absolutely nothing about the overlying layer of fat.

What you can do is to continue to reduce your overall body fat through a combination of cardio, all-body strength training and watching your intake, and some of it will naturally come off the arms.

While being active at work is good, it is not really going to strengthen your legs in the way that more focussed exercise will. You should be including some leg work (perhaps at weekends?) as these are the largest and strongest muscles in the body, and will give you the greatest calorie-burning effect, and will make your walking easier.

You don't need to belong to a gym to exercise - you can get in a very effective workout using just your own bodyweight for resistance. A simple but effective bodyweight routine would be:
* pushups (modified/wall/incline pushups if necessary)
* planks
* squats/lunges
* one arm dumbbell rows
* deadlifts
(The last 2 would require dumbbells or resistance bands). This would work most of the major muscles in the body in just 5 moves. Demos of all of these can be found in the Exercise Library www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercises.asp

Check On Demand on your cable or satellite system for fitness videos. Bicep and tricep exercises will help. For abs, try hovers and planks.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

I am looking for exercises that focus on the arms and abs. I am very active at work (usually walk 10 miles a day), so I like to keep my legs well rested for that emoticon I am trying to create a workout routine that lets my legs rest, but really focuses on my upperbody/arms/abs. I'm trying to get rid of arm flab, mostly. I don't have a gym membership, so I'm looking for things I can do at home. Any recommendations?

Thank you! emoticon
