    Hello all,

    I know there's no such thing as spot reducing, and I know we all lose fat in different areas, but man! My upper arms are being a pain!

    I can get my torso comfortably into a size 26 top, but the arms are a wee bit tight. I've just bought a size 24 top to slim into- in fact the body part is fine, it's just the upper arms!

    I know I lost about 2" off my upper arms about 6 weeks ago, but they seem to have stalled there.

    Will strength training make it worse or better? Any other tips?!

    I started a class called body pump on a regular basis- around 2-3 times a week- it's essentially a weight lifting class - I have lost around an inch in 5 days off my arms.
    You still need to do a much cardio as you can but weights/strength will help :)
