  • Working out with weights or building muscles don't help it just makes you bigger or broader...

    Good luck with losing the muscle , if that is what it is stop working out to define them mucles back there.

  • You CAN'T spot reduce... keep working out and toning... it will help!

  • Cut on carbs, your body will burn any fat you have stored back there.

  • Get some Sketcher toning shoes, they work the core muscles, they totally toned up my back within just a couple months of daily 5-7 mile walks.

  • There are a lot of upper arm exercises you can do, use light weights though, 2-5 lbs, so you don't bulk up. I have a circle thingy that I use for my arms because I can't lift much, it helps tone the shoulder blades, I'm such a knob, I can't think what it's called but you push it together from the outer part of the circle and it works your arms, you can find them at Target.
