Fat deposits in certain problematic body areas can be a real nightmare, and many women face difficulties to target the fat below the underarm and around the side of the breasts. This pesky excess fat looks unsightly and can be the reason why someone cannot wear certain styles of clothing. You can replace the underarm fat with a lean tissue if you tone the upper body by focusing on exercises that sculpt the triceps, pectoral and back muscles. Therefore, toning these areas is not impossible, so we suggest seven exercises that will help you reduce fat and look more attractive: Dumbbell Row In a standing position, with the feet shoulder-width apart, hold dumbbells in the hands, and slightly bend the knees. Then, bend over at the waist, and let the weights hang in front of the torso to extend the legs. Contract the back, bend the arms, pull the dumbbells up to the ribcage, and hold for a second. Next, lower the weights and repeat. Do three sets of fifteen repetitions. Mountain climbers Start in a plant position, and raise one knee up. Bend it towards the chest, with the ball of the foot planted on the ground. Then, jump and while still in the air, switch the position of the legs, and repeat rapidly for a minute. Chest Press This exercise targets the chest muscles. Lie on a bench, with dumbbells in the hands, and the feet flat on the floor. Push the dumbbells up in order the arms to be placed over the shoulders and the palms. Next, lower the dumbbells down and to the side, and make 10 repetitions. Standing Dumbbell Fly

Start with the feet hip distance apart, and holding dumbbells in the hands. With the back straight, lean forward to put the body at a 45-degree angle. Bring the dumbbells in front of the body, slowly raise them up to shoulder height, and keep the arms bent at the elbows. Do 3 sets of 15 repetitions. Jump rope Start in a standing position, with the knees and feet together, and the elbows at the sides. Hold the handles in the hands, and place the rope behind the heels. Start jumping and squeeze the shoulder blades well. Go as fast as you can for a few minutes. Tricep Dips Place the hand, shoulder-width apart on a bench, and the legs should be straight out in front of the body. The feet should be placed in such a position that the hips barely touch the edge of the bench. The elbows should point behind, and the forearms perpendicular to the floor. Next, bend the elbows a bit to lower the body to about 90 degrees. Hold for a second, and press the heels of the hands to completely straighten the arms. Do 3 sets of 10 repetitions.
