Exercise Myth Busters #34

You can lose fat from specific parts of your body if you target those areas with particular exercises

You can’t pick and choose the specific areas that you’d like to burn fat from.  In order to reduce your fat stores you need to carry-out a calorie restricted diet together with a training program that combines both cardiovascular and strength-based exercises.  Doing hours of abdominal exercises will provide basic strength to your abs, but these exercises will not eliminate any excess fat that overlies your abdominal muscles.  Only once you significantly lower your overall body fat content will you start to notice any definition in these muscles.
