According to experts and research, spot-burning fat is impossible. Here's what that means for your workouts.
How often do you encounter promises like “Whittle your waist!” or “Trim your thighs!” or “Flatten your belly!” in magazines and marketing? Probably pretty often.

“There’s no evidence that working a muscle inspires your body to mobilize the fat next to that muscle group,” says Refine Method founder and exercise brainiac Brynn Jinnett, who went to Harvard and then studied kinesiology and the movement patterns of professional athletes. “You can’t decide where the weight is going to come off first,” she says. (Though it’s a bummer.)
