    Does exercising a certain body part increase fat loss in that particular area?

    Or is this just a myth?

    specific bodypart exercises do not increase fat loss in that area...example: doing numerous ab exercises do not increase fat loss in the ab area....

    Yup it sucks but it is a myth, you will loose the body fat from your extremities first and for most men, the belly will be last, hips for the ladies.

    Some people store fat differently, for me I store more in my lower back area for others, they get man boobs.
    Cool

    Does that mean that you have a back gut as opposed to a stomach gut?

    Hahaha, not really but even though I don't have a low BF level (around 15%) I still have not a bad set of abs showing.

    When I was fatter, I was starting to get a set of love handles.

    definitely a myth, and I am surprised at how many people still believe it.

    I see up in Canada, they are offering people there Money back to return there Ab Tronics because of the false clames of spot reduction in the mid section.

    Yup

    In fact, building muscle under all that fat (if you have a high BF)
    will actually make you look fatter.

    Ummmm, yeah, thats my problem hehehehe
    Cool
