Many people think that sit-ups will take fat off the waist, or that exercising the legs will slim the legs. FAT SPOT REDUCTION DOES NOT EXIST! It’s a myth that fat can be targeted for reduction from a specific area of the body. This is a common misperception. It is not possible to achieve spot reduction by exercising the specific muscles of a target area. For example, one might exercise the abdominal muscles in an effort to lose weight around the midsection. Advertisers exploit this concept when trying to sell exercise-related products. However, fitness experts know it is not possible to reduce fat in one area by exercising that body part alone. The muscle will become firm in that one area, but the fat loss in that area will be minimal.
So, now you may be wondering how to get rid of that excess fat. Fat is an energy reserve or a calorie bank. Fat is stored energy; where it is stored is determined by your genetic blue print. You cannot alter that proportion. As you gain and lose fat, it increases and reduces by the same genetically determined proportion every time. This is true no matter how you gain or lose the weight. So, for example, if you lose 100 calories running, you will take exactly the same amount of fat off your waist as if you burned 100 calories from bench presses, from sit-ups, or from sleeping (yes, sleeping burns calories too!) The result of a good diet and regular exercise is fat loss. If you want to reduce fat in any area, you must consume fewer calories than your body uses. Exercise is a great way to speed up weight loss by increasing your metabolism 24 hours a day, so that fat will be lost and pounds shed.
