I have loose skin on my upper arms. I am 60 years old. Is it possible to tighten this area with exercises? If so, what kind? I am a 60 year-old female. I recently lost a significant amount of weight, and, as a result, I have "batwings" under my upper arms

For exercise, try to work on getting cardio fitness rather than weight training. As you burn more calories and eat healthier, the mid-section body fat will slim down. ...Read more
