    OK hopefully I can describe this right. On the back of my arm, above the tricep and below the shoulder, I want to get rid of the excess fat there.

    By this image, it would be the area between the deltoid and above the bicep.

    What exercise can I do to make that area more defined.

    To get rid of excess fat there you need to bench, squats, deadlift, pullups and get your diet in check, might have to do some cardio too.

    you CAN NOT spot reduce fat....

    I'm guessing your a chick since females tend to store fat in that area...


    you need to eat better and exercise more...

    I was asking if there is a specific exercise I can do to define that area.

    did you not read my fucking post? you can't spot reduce fat!



    you must have high estrogen levels if your not a chick since storing fat in the back of the upper arm is in line with estrogenic fat storage patterns...

    sorry you're like 99.9% of people who come in here.

    want a quick fix for "just my love handles" or "my lower abs" or in your case "that spot below my delt above the tri on the back of the arm."

    it's insulting that you come in, ask a quick fix question without consulting the stickied threads FULL of advice and explanations for things, then fire back at us being sarcastic or trite when we call you out on it.

    fuck off.

    OK enough of this being tough over the internet. You showed me...

    I did look through the stickies, and I tried to search for an answer. Maybe my lack of terms, cause I didn't know it was a rear delt, WTF that is so ridiculous, I didn't find an answer.

    This is the first time I've heard of someone wanting to reduce fat in a certain spot other than abs. :rofl:

    How do you know?



















































    Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab. 2007 Feb;292(2):E394-9. Epub 2006 Sep 19.

    Are blood flow and lipolysis in subcutaneous adipose tissue influenced by contractions in adjacent muscles in humans?

    Stallknecht B, Dela F, Helge JW.

    Department of Medical Physiology, The Panum Institute, Blegdamsvej 3, DK-2200 Copenhagen N, Denmark. [email protected]

    Aerobic exercise increases whole body adipose tissue lipolysis, but is lipolysis higher in subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT) adjacent to contracting muscles than in SCAT adjacent to resting muscles? Ten healthy, overnight-fasted males performed one-legged knee extension exercise at 25% of maximal workload (W(max)) for 30 min followed by exercise at 55% W(max) for 120 min with the other leg and finally exercised at 85% W(max) for 30 min with the first leg. Subjects rested for 30 min between exercise periods. Femoral SCAT blood flow was estimated from washout of (133)Xe, and lipolysis was calculated from femoral SCAT interstitial and arterial glycerol concentrations and blood flow. In general, blood flow and lipolysis were higher in femoral SCAT adjacent to contracting than adjacent to resting muscle (time 15-30 min; blood flow: 25% W(max) 6.6 +/- 1.0 vs. 3.9 +/- 0.8 ml x 100 g(-1) x min(-1), P < 0.05; 55% W(max) 7.3 +/- 0.6 vs. 5.0 +/- 0.6 ml x 100 g(-1) x min(-1), P < 0.05; 85% W(max) 6.6 +/- 1.3 vs. 5.9 +/- 0.7 ml x 100 g(-1) x min(-1), P > 0.05; lipolysis: 25% W(max) 102 +/- 19 vs. 55 +/- 14 nmol x 100 g(-1) x min(-1), P = 0.06; 55% W(max) 86 +/- 11 vs. 50 +/- 20 nmol x 100 g(-1) x min(-1), P > 0.05; 85% W(max) 88 +/- 31 vs. -9 +/- 25 nmol x 100 g(-1) x min(-1), P < 0.05). In conclusion, blood flow and lipolysis are generally higher in SCAT adjacent to contracting than adjacent to resting muscle irrespective of exercise intensity. Thus specific exercises can induce "spot lipolysis" in adipose tissue.

    i know it's said you can't spot reduce fat, however, isn't that what yohimburn is for? or is that a scam? :noes:

    I've read about hormone imbalances changing location of fat storage. I think Charles Poliquin published a couple of articles. I could be wrong on that though
