I recently got dumped and took to running to numb the pain. (emo etc I know, sorry.) Subsequently I've started to really enjoy my running / cardio and am gonna take up playing rugby again.

Anyways, I can now see my abs pretty well and am looking in good shape but oddly I still have lil love handles and a lot of fat on my ass lol. I know you can't target specific areas to remove fat, but I'm wondering why I still have this since the rest of me is looking good.

I know different people's body's store fat more readily in certain areas so do you think that this **** will start to come off now that I've got little fat to burn elsewhere on my body, or am I doomed to have a fat ass? lol

Thanks.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. I have a pretty flat belly, but my love handles make me have almost a pear shape. I have found that as my body fat goes down, my love handles go down as well. Unfortunately I believe that it is just genetics, but I can guarantee that if you diet right and exercise, the fat on your love handles and glutes will go down. Hope this helps!

Aside from your running, you should try to work in some weights with squats and lunges. Those exercises will help target your glutes to help tone the muscle and shed fat in that area.

I do some weight training but it's all upperbody at the minute and it's definitely secondary to the cardio. I run/swim/row about 5 times per week and do a short weights session on the other days.

I don't really have the facilities to do heavy squats but if you think it'd make much difference I'm sure I can do some high rep stuff with dumbells or something.

Trust me - if you've never really done squats before, doing multiple sets of walking lunges , jefferson squats, and wide-stance squats with a decent size pair of dumbbells will kick you in your ass. Use a weight where you can complete 3 sets of 10-12 reps for each exercise. Your quads, hams, and glutes will feel it the next day, and maybe the day after - lol.

You can't really target an area to lose the fat. Fat is just stored where ever. Doing weights on that area will only increase muscle, not decrease the fat. I use to have like 7% bodyfat when I was in highschool but I never had a 6/8pack. Yet I could do unlimited amount of situps, I remembre a night while watching TV I hit like 700 rep and was still going, but I never could get the muscle to show up and the rest of me had no fat.

Thanks.The fat will go away you just have to keep at it. Fat on your glutes is usually the last to go along with lower ab fat. For some people it is the last to go. Adding some muscle in the area will help displace some of the fat and give your glutes a better contour and appearance.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll bare it in mind but I don't really wanna resort to stuff like that unless I've exhausted everything else. I feel I can still get a lot from cardio.

Particularly on glute and lower back fat, which includes love handles. Keep in mind that blocking the A2 only allows for better utilization of the stubborn fat tissues. Caloric deficit is still needed.
