Body Fat

I have a little bit of body fat on my chest, i have been doing 3 or 4 sessions per week of cycling for 30mins.

I've noticed its looking a better, as its solid until i get to the pecs, where there is a centimetre of fat.

Is the pecs the hardest place to shift fat?

Im also aware that when cycling, the upperbody is not moving, should i take up another exercise like running, swimming.. which would be best?

Thanks folks.

    #1 fat distrobution is down to genetic disposition, nothing will alter that.
    #2 in my expericnce, cycling is one of the best exersizes for beinmg fit, but one of the worst for shifting fat.
    #3 rowing, skipping, circuit training, boxing, swimming, running, hiking, kayaking or climbing will all benifit you more than cycling imo.

    I agree with Robert, cycling is great for cardio but not so good for fat burn only. If you train in the gym, get on an Eliptical Trainer, this will work the whole body.

    For general cardio work I think cycling is best, but to shift bf I like to mix the Eliptical Trainer with TABing (walking at a fairly fast pace at max incline), I find this (TABing) has less impact but burns more cals than jogging.
