Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted II Denis Waitley


Spot reduction is one of the biggest myths in the weight loss community. You cant just choose an area to lose weight. Fact is that the stomach area is the hardest place to lose fat for most of us.

One of the biggest misconceptions in the fitness world today is the belief that you can reduce fat in specific areas of your body by targeting them with exercise. Well you can't. Proper nutrition will lead the way when it comes to loosing that extra fat. Exercising and weight training will definitely accelerate the process of loosing weight/fat loss,
but you have to take care of your eating habits,How much macros you take,the amount of carbs,proteins and fats you are consuming.

For mens usually fat gets accumlated at lower abs/love handles, the lower chest, or lower back. However for women, it's usually thighs, glutes, hips, and under arms where the fat gets stored.

Unfortunately, this is all simply due to genetics and how the body displaces body fat differently for men and women.

Is it possible to spot reduce?

Not really. Doing crunches and tons of ab exercises won't make your abs show, or else you'd see many overweight people with a six pack. When you lose body fat it will come from different areas, but we can't control it. What we can control is building muscle in those areas to help speed up the process. Abs are the biggest area l see that people think they can crunch their way into having abs. Remember that abs are muscles and they can grow, if you overdue the ab training your waist may get wider.


You can't reduce fat in any particular area of your body by targeting it with exercises, You can reduce fat by proper dieting, and your body will decide how it comes off (which areas will become lean frst and which will be stubborn). Our bodies are all genetically programmed differently, and there's nothing we can do to change that. We all have our "fat spots" that annoy us to no end, and that's just genetics for you.

About Me

My photo
“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey. Lets learn and grow together.- love and peace
