One of the biggest myths is that you can lose fat in an area of the body by strength training or exercising that specific body part.
The truth is that you can’t lose fat from a specific area like that.
The best way to get rid of excess fat is to combine a healthy nutrition plan and exercise regularly. Resistance training will increase muscle mass, and it forces fat to divide into the broader surface area. That makes you look more fit.
We cannot dictate where our bodies will decide to oxidize fat, nor can we change fat into muscle.
Doing tricep focused exercise will not decrease the number of fat cells you have on the back of your arms any more than doing crunches will reduce the number of fat cells you have on your stomach.
But, the increase in muscle size will help the overall look as fat does decrease due to regular exercise. And that bigger muscle will fill in the skin and reduce the “flap factor”. This is not a technical term, I made that one up myself. So, tone it up as part of a regular weekly exercise routine.
