Are you a dude who is seeing a bit of sag on the bottom of the arms? That wiggly flap will just keep increasing in size as we age if left to itself.

Arm sag is one of those things that remind us that we’re getting older, much like nose hair, ear hairs and hemorrhoids. None are too fun.

Everyone carries fat in different places. It’s part of our unique genetic makeup. Guys can carry the majority of their fat in their chest, arms, love handles and mid-section. Occasionally, the majority of fat cells will reside below the waist, but that’s usually more of a female problem.

How does a guy get rid of saggy arms?

If you’re someone who has recently lost a lot of weight, there’s a good chance that you’re seeing some bat wings on the triceps. It’s part of the process of losing weight.

Like so many things in life that are health and fitness related, diet and exercise are key to keeping the flab off your arms and looking your best as the years roll on.
