You should aim to do exercises that target your arms about 3 times per week, these include things like simple push ups and planks. Another thing you could try is to do weight training that targets your arms. Work at as high intensity level as you like, the higher the intensity, the more fat you will burn. Try to do exercises like these as often as possible, but be sure not to overdo it too much!
You can also start by doing a 10 minute arm workout, like this:

More often than not it is the diet that needs to change in order for there to be a significant change in weight. You will be trying to gain lean muscle in your arms to substitute the fat, and to do that you must be sure to pack your meals full with lean protein. You should choose a diet plan which includes lean proteins include; fish, turkey, cottage cheese and egg whites, they make you feel full without overeating and are slow burning carbohydrates.
Things to keep in mind:
Although you may want to get rid of your arm fat as soon as possible, you won’t see a noticeable change straight away. It takes quite a bit of time to start seeing results, but when you do, it will definitely be worth it for you. Another thing to remember is that it is going to be hard work, and you must stick to a plan if you want to see results.
Assume the Press Up Position:
Press ups are one of the most powerful exercises you can do. Not only will you work your arm muscles, you will work your core too. If your core isn’t stable enough to do full press ups right now, lower to your knees and do the half press ups. As you build your arm strength and your core stability, you will be able to do the full ones.
You can also do them from desks, counter tops and sinks if you find doing the ones on the floor difficult. Try doing a few while you’re waiting for the kettle to boil, or just after brushing your teeth.
Curls for the Biceps:
You will need weights for this exercise, but that does not mean going to the gym. Instead of buying free weights, try using tins of beans or other heavy items that you can hold and life with one arm. Bicep curls are perfect for trimming the fat from the biceps, and building the muscles in this area. There is no need to worry about getting too big. There is not enough testosterone for that to happen.
If you don’t have anything heavy, try using a resistance band instead. Stand on it with one leg, and then pull it up towards you. Keep your elbows tucked in to make the most of this exercise.
Tricep Dips for the Back of Your Arms:
To work on the back of your arms, you will need to do some tricep dips. Make sure you have a stable surface that you can rest on, and place your legs out in front of you. The further out your legs, the more weight you will place on your arms. There’s no need to invest in any special equipment for this, and you can do them in your own home.
