Why are they even called bingo wings? They don't aid our ability to fly in any way.

If, like us, you want to de-wing then we'd suggest watching this fitness video starring celebrity trainer, Jennifer Johnson.

Jenn (aka JJ Dancer) walks you through five simple arm exercises to give you more defined arms. Or as Jennifer puts it, five ways to get rid of those “wings and things”.

The aim of the exercises? To add definition to your arms by targeting your triceps, biceps and core.

If you want to try incorporating arm exercises into your daily routine - for example, at work - Personal Trainer Jenna Wolfe has shared her advice with Huffington Post for working on stubborn upper arm flab, with no gym equipment needed.

Jenna suggests you hold two small water bottles, one in each hand, and extend your arms out wide.

Rotate your arms in small circles, 50 forwards then 50 backwards, keeping your arms straight.

After the circles, bring your arms into a “V” shape in front of your body and do 50 more repetitions with the water bottles in each hand, lifting your arms just slightly upwards.

Another tip from Jenna? Try to drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day.

"It may not be exciting, but water is the best appetite suppressant, as well as the best way to properly hydrate your body. And water is available almost everywhere."

She suggests having 20 sips of water when you first wake up, and then having two glasses of water before a meal.

"These tricks will help manage your weight and curb your appetite," she added.
