I want to lose fat just from my stomach but people say it's impossible to do that from only 1 place. But then why do people say things like 'I'm doing legs today at the gym' aka you CAN target certain body parts? Or is that 'toning'. Will 'toning' make my stomach flatter? If so how can I do that?
By doing legs they mean they're toning it, so they're making it firmer. I don't believe you can allow one specific part of your body to lose weight.
Cardio is good for losing fat, also weights. But you can't pick a certain area and say you want to loose fat from there bc doesn't work like that. I feel your pain.
You can't. The people who say it's impossible are correct, that's not how fat loss works. People who say things like "I'm training legs today" are doing so to increase the size of their leg muscles. There's no such thing as "toning", this is a term perpetuated by people trying to sell fitness programs but don't really know what they're talking about.
Only way you can lose fat ONLY on the stomach is via liposuction. People docleg day chest day etc is to BUILD muscle or shape muscle
It's not possible to lose fat from one area. You have to lose overall body fat and to do this you have to go to a caloric deficit. You can also train your abs to make them more prominent.
When someone is hitting legs on a specific day, they are aiming to get their leg stronger, by doing leg workouts (squats, deadlifts, etc).
