Fact or Fiction

In order to lose fat in specific places, you need to do exercises that target that area alone.

Fiction: While exercises that target specific areas will increase the strength and muscle tone located there, they will not burn those fat deposits specifically.

For example: Doing sit-ups will not burn the fat deposited on your abdomin, but it will make your stomach muscles stronger and more defined.

Fat is lost when overall calories expended are more then the calories taken in. So in order to lose that unwanted fat, you need to increase overall activity.

I always tell myself that I've got some pretty kickin' abbs underneath the flab covering them!
