Sorry, I wasn't trying to say it did exist or that if you constantly worked one area you'd lose fat just from there. I was just trying to make the point that yoga isn't just lying around on the floor and that if you practise it consistently it can aid fat loss. Sorry if I was unclear.
OK

You are mistaken... it isn't possible to choose wear u burn fat from as narb said.

What u are probably feeling is an increase in density on the muscle below the fat.

if you want to get into shape- go speak to your local gym, they are always helpful- they can set up a programme for you, as varied as you want- the dance classes and that are always a laugh!

i'm sure thats wrong. The more you work on an area, the more fat goes there so as to build up an energy store for next time you work on that area.

How is cycling is comparison to running. I always find running a lot more demanding and cycling i'd be able to go further afield..

I feel like a prat just running, riding a bike makes it look like you're actually doing something with a purpose.

:confused: By that logic no one who exercised would ever lose fat...

You are doing it for a purpose arent you?

What do you think when you see someone running?

Probably not 'what a prat hes going for a run hehehehe!'

Hi Rose In Bloom!

As you say you're skinny but unfit, you should think about rowing. There's no better sport to tone the WHOLE body. It's sometimes not very interesting for girls who aren't slim: you lose the fat but you gain body mass and if you stop training, you'll go back to your old fat self.
I used to be quite skinny as a kid. But with so much training during my high school years and early uni years, I put on a lot of body mass. Now I'm about 75 to 80kg (175 lbs) for 6' and started to end up quite the opposite of skinny.

It might not be ideal for the summer but if you're planning to go to uni, think about joining the rowing team.

If you have a friend who's really into sports, find a sport you'd both enjoy and that they know quite a lot about: squash, tennis something like that. It's always more motivating if you're not alone.

Otherwise, if you end up on your own: anything from cycling to jogging will make you fit. Making your sessions more regular is more important than making them intensive...
Hey yourself SamtheMan...
Good advice there....I like badminton (my fav sport- though I hardly play it)
Yeah I'll be going to univ soon....will see what they'll have to offer and then decide what to do....
Also, everyone else, thanx...I think I'll start with cycling and walking...
cheers

I've been doing yoga for years and it's absolutely fantastic Try it! I do it once a week in addition to going to the gym several times per week, and it's a great combination because yoga really stretches, tones and conditions your muscles. Certain positions/routines which focus on specific areas will burn fat in those areas; you tend to repeat positions a couple of times so it's very focused on one small muscle group at a time (sometimes ones you didn't even know existed!) and in that sense can be more 'targeted' than traditional workouts. Always opt for longer classes (ideally 1.5hrs if you can) though as your muscles need time to warm up at the beginning and relax at the end for full effect. Give it a go, I walked out of my first yoga class feeling a difference in my entire body and it got me totally hooked.
Yeh, you're right about it toning the body.
I remember when I had to do intensive body building when I used to row competitively. You'd have these idiots doing exercises willy nilly and you can see how they're damaging their spine, their neck. A lot don't even stretch properly after. I had a trainer who was so strict on stretching. I'm glad I listened to him.
I wouldn't want to look like the hunchback of Notredame
