This is one of my favorite short workouts I do to get rid of batwings quickly. If your arms jiggle when you wave, or you cover your arms up to hide the flabby skin, you might like to try this short effective arm workout.
Women of all ages can have that unsightly droopy jiggly arm fat hanging or flapping when they don’t want it to.
You don’t have to be an overweight person to have batwings.
I’m a small person with hardly any fat on me, but when I got passed 50, I lost most of the little fat I had, my muscles suddenly sagged, and oh boy that flappy loose arm skin drove me to despair.
I started to cover up my upper arms with long sleeve tops. Does that sound familiar to you?
Well as long as your batwings are not caused by extreme weight loss that only a surgeons scalpel could fix, doing regular arm workouts can help to bring your arms back into shape.
Various things can cause batwings such as, aging, hormones, menopause, weight loss, poor diet, muscle atrophy, and genetics are some of the main ones.
I have tried various workouts but I find the one below to be the most effective for me, and quick to do. Just 5 minutes is all it takes!

You don’t need weights or resistance bands for this one. But you may want to use a yoga mat (optional). Amazon has a good range of yoga mats – you can check them out here.
Now Get Rid of Those Batwings
Be sure to check with your health care professional
before you start any form of fitness.
This work out by Koboko Fitness is an easy to follow routine, for any fitness level.
She guides you through each segment, and you can see a timer in the top left of the screen, to see how long it is until the next sequence begins.
(1) Make sure you are wearing loose-fitting clothing.
(2) Each segment (set) has four exercises that last for 30 seconds each, then there is a rest period of 1 minute between each segment. Be sure to shake your arms out, or have a drink during the rest period, and at the end of the workout.
(3) If you cannot go as fast as Koboko, going slower at your own pace is quite alright, and is still beneficial.
(4) Never go past the point of strain. While a little pain or a little burning feeling is normal, don’t go to the point you are in a lot of pain. Doing so will cause more harm than good.
If you CANNOT finish each sequence, don’t worry, in time when your muscles get stronger, you will soon be able to.
Persistence is required. You won’t get results if you just do this work out now and again. Depending on your fitness level every second to third day is all you need, and over time you will start to notice improvement.
I sure have.
