    What are the best exercises for burning fat, arms and abdominals

    Anyone got some tips, exercises that i can try?

    It is not physically possible to spot reduce fat, unless you get liposuction. Your body decides where the fat is lost, not you. No matter what types of exercise you do, this has been studied scientifically extensively and there has been 0 evidence to suggest doing sit ups burns belly fat and so on. So basically you have to lose fat overall and hope you notice a difference in those areas.

    If you want to lose fat you need to be at a calorie deficit.

    Building muscle underneath the fat however may improve the appearance of the areas you are not happy with, but you won't get any muscle definition unless you have a reasonably low body fat %.
