Batwings Be Gone! 🦇



Recommended Posts

Any ladies out there have success with building muscle/toning arms? Looking for the best exercises to do to try to get rid of my batwings. Or at least make them less noticeable. Before and after pics would be appreciated as well! Show your progress off! Thanks!

Can't wait until I get to goal so I can go to the plastic surgeon and be rid of my bat wings. No amt of exercise is going to get rid of mine...sorry no pictures.

Same. By PCP/surgeon/gym-addicted friends all say the only way I can get rid of my bat wings is to (a) gain all my weight back (b) work out my arms to build enough muscle to fill in the empty space my fat left (c) get plastics.

Since (a) is a deal-breaker, and (b) will result in me looking like a young Schwarzenegger (I have ALOT of empty space!), I decided on (c)...which I officially have booked for this year.

No pics from me either.

I've been desperately hunting down shirts with sleeves just long enough to cover them!!! LOL

Since working out with weights 3 times a week, my arm muscles actually look pretty good! But........ batwings are hanging underneath! I am going to wait a year after goal and then see how my self image is. If I am still too embarrassed to wear sleeveless tanks (this IS Arizona, afterall), I may consider plastics at that time. But I want to give my psyche a chance to come to grips with the situation. Who knows? A year post goal and I may just say, "To heck with it - these are MY arms and I earned 'em. No one else's opinion matters."

Mine aren't firming up no matter how many arm exercises I do, so I'm just choosing to live with them. I like bats. 🙂

Haha thanks, guys! I’m hoping to work on mine and then just live with what I end up with. But it’s tough, before I gained weight I always loved my arms! Kicking myself! The past 7 years of gaining did a number on them! 😞😞🤣

No exercise will tighten loose skin.

I've made peace with mine for the most part. I don't hide them, most of the time. I wear tanks & short sleeves.

Working on my biceps seemed to help.......or maybe just wishful thinking.........either way, if I feel they look better, no one's opinion matters.

@AZhiker 3/4 sleeve shirts are perfect for covering. Also, sometimes when I wear short sleeves, I'll wear a long sleeve under.
