Aunt y arms

Australian Geographic - - Geobuzz - By Kel Richards

As we get older, our up­per arms (tri­ceps) can lose mus­cle tone.This phe­nom­e­non is of­ten called aunty arms. Other names in­clude nanna’s arms; bingo wings; good­bye mus­cles; or pi­ano arms, because this is the bit that moves when some­one is belt­ing out a tune on the pi­ano. Or – and this is my favourite – they can be called re­verse bi­ceps, because in­stead of stand­ing up, as bi­ceps nor­mally do, they hang down. It’s all, of course, a sa­lute to Aussie ver­bal in­ven­tive­ness… and to how much we love our aun­ties.
