For many women, the area between the armpits and the breasts can be a personal bug bear if there is fat stored there. In a bikini, a top or a dress, this fat has a tendency to protrude -even more so if your bra is a little too tight. So how can you quickly lose this awkward fat, naturally and without too much effort? Quite simply by doing these exercises for 2 minutes every day -it won’t be long before you see results. Of course, a balanced diet and regular exercise will help you achieve your goals more quickly. 

Exercice 1 to lose armpit fat

Stand up straight, in front of a wall.

Stretch your right arm out straight in front of you, keeping a good distance from the wall.

Keep this arm out straight and place your hand on the wall, so that your arm is perpendicular to the wall.

Bring your other hand towards your right shoulder, without moving otherwise, and keep your back nice and straight.

Lightly bend your right arm and push against the wall with your hand to straighten yourself up again.

This exercise resembles vertical one-arm push ups.

Repeat 5 times before changing sides, and do it five times with the other hand. Repeat the series a second time with each arm.

Here is a video showing the three exercises in total.

Exercice 2 : the diamond

Stay facing the wall, but move a little further back from the wall, around 10 to 15 cm further back, depending on how difficult you want to make the exercise.

Place your both hands against the wall, making a diamond shape with your fingers.

Slowly bend your elbows to go down into a vertical push up, and push yourself up to standing by pushing on your arms.

Repeat 10 times.

Go down on your knees on a ground mat, lean towards the ground, propping yourself up on straight arms, hands on the ground.

Bend your knees behind you (bringing your feet towards your bum) and cross your ankles, keeping your upper body propped up with your arms.

Do a push up movement, similar to what you did standing in Exercise 2. Gently bend your elbows to descend as close as you can to the floor and push up on your hands to bring yourself back up.

Repeat around ten times.

If you have muscle pains or joint pains, do not do these exercises, or ask the advice of a physiotherapist or doctor beforehand.
