Love handles

I seem to be losing fat off my stomach, but I've got huge lumps of stubborn fat on my lower back.

I've read about ''stubborn'' fat before, is this what it is?

Is there any creams I could take to give me an extra boost?

Please don't ask if I have got everything in check, because I have.

    hi m8, im with u on this one....i too suffer from fat storage on my lower back-love handle area, even though i have a body fat of around 11%. my diet is good and i train 6 days per week. i would also like to know if there is anything possible to aid the fat loss in this area.

    Stick with the training you guys, that's about the only thing I can tell you from personal experience. The last few percent of fat is the hardest to shift for most of us. Obviously as you get smaller your body uses less calories so you have to adjust your intake accordingly by lowering it further. You could try a thermo stack (IMHO eca is still the best) to speed things along if you want. BTW, what is your cardio schedule like. You should be doing 45min of moderate intensity cardio at least 4 times per week. With those last few percent cardio pretty much becomes manditory (esp if you are having probs).

    @ Paulie - there is a few fat reduction creams out; however, I'm not sure how effective any of them are. I have heard some mixed reviews but never tried any myself. You might give them a go if you can find enough claims on the net (from people on boards like this) to back up their high price.

    Good luck both of you

    im not a 45 minute cardio man, i prefer to use interval training or at least high intensity training. this type of training has been proven to increase metabolic functioning after the session in the gym has finished......but then again i am the one with the love handle problem so perhaps long slow cariod is the way to go. anyway cheers m8

    This might be complete b*llocks but I was once told that massage can aid fat reduction and that women have used it to breakdown cellulite, the therory being that it increases blood flow to the specific area.

    I don't know of any research to back this up and would be interested in anyones thoughts on this..........what do you think ???
