Question Back Fat!

Okay. I'm a 19 year old Female. I started loosing weight on 3/12 at 230lbs. BUT, I carried it very well. Anyway, its now a month later and I'm down to 206. I can tell I've lost some except in my BACK! Its driving me nuts. Is there anything I can do to speed the process of loosing the back fat?

Thanks!

Re: Back Fat!

No. You cannot lose fat more in one place. It just doesn't work that way. Keep on your current program and you will see a difference soon. It just takes a little time. Congrats on the success so far, btw.

Re: Back Fat!

I wanted to get my back 'in shape'...
And since muscle burns fat, the best thing to aid it along is working it out.
If you're already hitting the gym, then you probably know about the shoulder excersices you could do. As far as lower back... I learned a great one-

1)Grab an exercise ball and head toward a sturdy wall
2)Lay on the ball with your face facing towards the floor (not the celing) so that your weight is all distributed on your chest and upper abdomen (kinda hard to picture I'm sure)
3) make sure your feet are pressing against the wall
4) then proceed to do a 'backwards sit up' so instead of doing crunches for your tummy, you're doing crunches for you back

If anything, it really helps strengthen that often left out part of the body.

hope that made sense
