This is an interesting thread. I've been lifting weights a looong time and I've tried a hundred different workouts and every machine under the sun. I love lifting weights, unfortunately I love eating and drinking beer when I get done, which is why I'm here
But anyway, I don't really think spot reducing is possible either. The only place that it seems to be possible is the arms. But I think it's just an illusion because my arms don't typically have a lot of fat on them anyway, but it does seem like I can melt away virtually all of the fat on my arms by sticking to an intense arm workout for just a few weeks.
