No, Virginia, There Is No Spot Reduction

The other night one of my boot campers repeatedly ask me how to make her arms smaller. I kept telling her over and over that you can't spot reduce. I told her that as she continued to eat right and exercise her overall body fat would decrease but she persisted.

Was cardio the answer? Should she do more arm exercises on her days off from boot camp? Should she use lighter weights during boot camp so she don't build her arms?

Yikes, has she learned nothing from me? I guess I should be glad she didn't ask me about this stupid thing. ================>

Anyway, rather than writing up an entire article myself, I found this one that explains it...
You Cannot Spot Reduce and There is No Such Thing as Toning
