Lose the Love Handles

Is spot reduction myth or fact?  Here's a shocker fitness buffs, it's a fact!  While we know that during aerobic exercise the "whole body" burns fat, a study in the American Journal of Physiology (Stallknecht, B. 2007) showed that fat loss is affected by "contractions in adjacent muscles."  If you want to lose those love handles start adding some serious ab work!
