Best exercise for reducing fat on the back and shoulders.
I have large torso w/slimmer legs,arms,toned shoulders. I have been doing Boxing training over a year.Therefore my back is toned too but i definitely would like to have less fat on the back and the breast.Which sports or exercises works the best for losing fat on the breast and back.
you will not like my answer: spot-reducing simply is not possible. You have already done a great job toning you upper back but there is not an exercise that would coax the body into giving up fat in specific areas.
The best you can do is create a negative energy balance (in other words: more calories out than in) while maintaining your exercise program to reduce the total amount of body fat and hope that your body will help itself fat-wise from the desired areas first. But there is nothing else you can do.
If I had a different answer, I would be a millionaire by now :-)
Exercise and proper nutrition together can help you ls the fat. Aim to lose 1-2 pounds a week for long term results.
I suggest increasing your workout intensity and switching exercise routines often!
I agree with all of the above posters. Unfortunately, there are no spot reducing exercises.
However, if you are satisfied with how your arms and legs look, then you can only lose the fat through proper care of your nutrition and an exercise program designed for weight loss. As always, your body will lose fat all over, but more specifically it will shed more from the extremities before shedding from the torso in general.
Keep in mind though that the energy demands for building muscles and losing weight are opposites of each other. You will have to eat a bit more to provide more energy for your muscles to repair and grow, whereas you have to eat a bit less in order to create an energy deficit to allow for weight loss.
As always, it's best to speak with your physician, just to be safe, before undertaking any exercise program.
I agree with everyone else.
It sounds like you want to do bodyshaping; therefore, try to build up the smaller areas to make the larger look smaller. I am sorry to say, spot targeting specific areas is not possible or realistic.
Also, if you say this is your body type, then go with the flow and use a balanced exercise program with proper nutrition to feel and look your best:
full body strength with flexibility, and cardiovascular work.
If you look in the mirror and talk to yourself as a friend, I am sure you will be happy right now. Next time you are out, look closely at others and you will see that you are great.
Enjoy your workouts and take care.
Boxing as you have been doing is great, as it tones muscle and burns calories... but as a former swimmer and swim coach there is nothing better for toning up, and burning calories, along with discovering new muscles.
Try it for a couple weeks and I bet you never look back... good luck.
If you have any questions or would like some swimming exercise tips feel free to message me.
The fat location is genetic. I would suggest focusing harder on the largest muscle groups in the body which are in your legs and back (anaerobic activities). This will increase your natural testosterone which will cause a decrease in adipose fat. Additional increase the amount of cardio to further fat loss. Focus mostly on developing you legs and the back will follow.
I know little about boxing, but it seems that your primary movers are not your lats but rather your chest muscles. You are pushing your arms out which engage your pecs, delts, triceps and maybe some lats as the arm moves towards the midline. In any case, if your back and chest need improvement try adding some machine rows and chest presses to your exercise program.
To reduce body fat anywhere, expend more calories than you consume.
After all, this my body type (large torso,lean legs arms etc)
I have read about Aerobic exercise is very good for losing weight and also good for battling depression.
According to my dietician i should not lose more than what i am now,otherwise i might lose muscles.Therefore i thought maybe i can use some specific exercises for making breast muscles stronger along with my back.
Anyway,i appreciate for the answers,i better start working on aerobic .
I got some injuries on my wrist during the boxing trainings, each time i got punched on my wrist, its terribly hurts after a while, so i took rest meanwhile (pregnancy was another excuse of course).
However, to stop boxing completely seems very difficult to me, i miss it!
but i am planning to go on jogging after i give birth.
thank you all for the tips
