Best at home workouts? Anonymous 9261[Reply]
Never been the type to care about exercising besides occasional daily walks. Any video or link recommendations (specifically for reducing arm fat)
You can't spot reduce fat. If your arms are fat, the only solution is to lose weight.
Wasn’t aware that was a thing. I have proportionally larger arms so am I just stuck with it even at a smaller weight?
You can put mass into the rest of your body to draw attention away from them.
If you have proportionally larger arms, I recommend working out. Make everything else muscular and get down to a lower bodyfat
It's been said to an extent already, but you can't specify where fat would be eliminated/reduced from. Your body's fat storage location is pretty much randomized (though typically distributed somewhat evenly).
If your goal is fat reduction, your diet is half the battle. Despite what HAES advocates like to say, calorie management is the end-all solution to weight loss. The /fit/ sticky explains this well (it's been up for the better part of the decade, unchanged, because there's nothing worth replacing it with). Exercise certainly supports that goal, though, in addition to all the other benefits it provides.
If exercising for the purpose of calorie burn specifically, walking is probably one of the most effective in comparison to time spent and perceived effort. If and when you're fit enough for it, that can be upgraded to jogging/slow running; after some practice you'll be able to run pretty much indefinitely at slow paces, provided hydration.
And finally, for workouts performed in the home, look into calisthenics/body weight fitness. The related reddit has a stickies with the related exercises, routines, and whatnot.
