Re:Cant seem to move the fat from chest and torso..
hi mate, i think you have been very misinformed about the effects of training, and the way the body works.
working an area with weights, no matter how you do it, will not spot burn fat. you cant remove fat from the chest by working the chest, light, heavy or otherwise.
weight training helps to preserve muscle, the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn per day. it also stimulates metabolism, and leads to a better overall shape. dieting without weights will drop weight, but at the expense of muscle. making it harder to maintain the new lower weight, and actually you just look a smaller version of your original self, not a leaner fitter version like you hoped for.
you need to be working hard on the weights, not taking it easy doing a few light weights.
cardio will increase fitness, boost metabolism, and burn fat. it needs to be a part of your routine.
diet needs to be strict, but include enough calories, fat and carbs to allow the body to function properly. it needs enough protein to build and repair muscle, and prevent muscle loss.
overall, these three things combine to produce fat loss, but its body wide, and there is no way to control what parts of the body it comes from.
