How can I lose weight without my arms getting too big and bulky?

I’m trying to lose weight, but don’t know what kind of weight lifting to do. I’m a girl so I really want toned and slender arms. Any advice would be helpful.

    I really don’t think you’re going to lose a lot of weight without significant cardiovascular workouts. Weightlifting alone wont make you lose weight. I would consider rowing! It’s cardiovascular and you really use your arms!

    You need very light weights but do lots of reps, don’t lift anything really heavy.

    loll who said that when losing weight ur arms are going to get big and bulky?

    Anyways u should use weight which u can easily do 20 times( 3 set) something like 5-10 pounds should be more then enough.

    First, you will not be able to spot reduce weight or fat. It just comes off according to your body programing.

    You are Good with wanting to do resistance training in addition to cardio. An alternating schedule of one day cardio one day resistance is best.

    I highly recommend 2 programs for someone that has your goals. I like Turbo Jam (for variety, fun factor and fast pace)
    I like Slim in 6 for a more traditional workout that has a good focus on total body conditioning.

    Using an in home program like these is a lot more cost effective than going to a gym but it will educate you on form, process and get you results.

    Do not worry about getting bulky. Use a weight or resistance band that lets you do about 12 -1 6 reps with the last 3 reps being hard to do. This builds a longer shapely muscle. for more muscle size look to fail at 6 – 8 reps.
    In addition your body chemistry will determine how much bulk you have. Women really do not have enough testosterone to bulk up. It also takes a lot of work to get that way including supplements!

    Hope that helps!

    Dumbells work great. I would start off small like 3-5 lbs. For fat free toned arms concentrate on building the triceps(muscles in the back of the arms) twice a week to get definition. With your weights in hand and arms hanging down close to the sides, raise 7-10 lb. dumbbells behind the body as high as possible for 10 to 15 reps. Also another good one is bench presses, you don’t need a bench but you can just use a sturdy chair. Sit on the edge of the chair with your palms down at the edge of the chair. Put your legs together and feet out in front of you. Slowly lift your body off the chair and down wait a few seconds then lift yourself back up to the starting position. Do 10-15 reps. Three to four times a week. They are kind of like pushups. Hope this helps.

    First you should focus on your eating habits. Eating a proper diet is the first step in how to lose weight the right way. By eating fewer sweets and replacing them with fruits and vegetables you will be one step ahead. You can also raise your metabolism by eating more meals per day at smaller portions, four smaller meals is a great way to start. Eating more meals at smaller portions will keep a constant flow of nutrients making it easier to lose weight.

    Exercise is the second important step in how to lose weight. Try to get twenty to thirty minutes of good cardio exercise everyday. It’s a great way to burn some calories and can be as easy as a jog, bike ride, or even a short walk for just 20 minutes a day. In addition, weight lifting is another great way to burn calories. Weight lifting can continue to burn calories long after an actual workout session, rememeber to start out slowly. You do not have to kill yourself lifting weights the first week. Gradually increase you workouts overtime.

    Finally you need to find a diet that works, and a diet that allows you to eat a variety of foods. If you can’t change up the foods in your diet then you will be doomed to getting sick of it and then weight gain is what will follow.

    Stick to a lighter weight and perform 2 sets of 12 to 20 repetitions this will increase muscle tone and burn fat without bulking up.

    Losing weight and getting fitter is really quite simple. All you have to do is a few simple things. Firstly, clear your fridge of fatty junk foods. If there’s no temptation, you cannot fall. Secondly, stock up on watermelon and other fruits. Watermelon is excellent because it clears out your digestive system of toxins and waste, leaving you feeling and being healthier. Next, begin exercising every day. Do not go too hard. If running, don’t go fast or uphill, unless you want bulky muscle. A steady pace each day for a minimum of 30 minutes will allow you to shed fat and tone your body. Set a day each week when you each junk food, but try not to go overboard and ruin the work of every other day. Drink plenty of water, often when you think you are hungry, you are actually thirsty. If you are getting cravings, have a glass of water, wait 5 minutes, and then see if you still want food. This usually gets rid of those nasty afternoon hunger pangs for me!
    Good luck, and I hope you get the results you want!!

    I may be nuts, but for the longest time I have been thinking that perhaps the most useful thing we could do for the poor populace in Africa would be to slaughter all the dangerous wild life. Africa is full of lions, elephants, hyenas, hippos, black mambas and many other dangerous animals. All of these animals must crowd out enormous amounts of resources as well as making life excedingly dangerous. How free can poor subsistence farmers build large plantations when even moving around the country is hemmed in by an open zoo? I would also knock off every caymen on earth too (two legs good; four legs bad). They are a danger to children (probably not you) and cats that the farmers might own. Think of how much more money you could make if domesticated herds could use the same vast natural resources used by useless to poor people’s wild herds and their natural predators. I am totally serious about this even if I might be crazy, ill informed, or both.
