Spot Reduction. A myth, and nothing but a myth.

"It is important to understand that 'spot-reduction' is not possible."

It is a common misconception that it's possible to focus on one or several areas of the body to reduce fat in just that specific area. While spot-training allows one to target specific muscles of the body, it does not target specific areas of fat deposits. It is important to note that fat tends to be lost in the reverse order in which it was gained, and there is no way to target individual parts of the body to solely reduce fat in just that location.
