I find Pinterest helpful for many things, but I get really annoyed when I see people pin things like this:
or when they say things like this:
I have to stop myself from commenting. There are no magic exercises to “get rid of saddlebags, arm flab, back fat, and muffin top” – or to convert the fat in a specific trouble area to muscle! SPOT TONING ALONE DOES NOT EQUAL RESULTS.
Yes, these exercises can be helpful to tone the muscle under the fat, and when body fat is lost from the whole body, those muscles will begin to show. But if a person is only doing these exercises – it’s not going to happen. It takes TONING + CARDIO + DIET.
That goes for hips, thighs, butt, arms – all of it.
Don’t fall victim to the spot toning/reduction myth.
