Woohoo for isolation exercises! They still won't burn fat from that specific area (hint: spot training doesn't work). M@L has it right. Fat will come off from where your body wants it too, just keep eating right.

Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

"I've never been good a targeting problem areas"

Yep... nobody is good at that because it is impossible.

The reason you have never been good at targeting problem areas is that it is impossible to do - you just can't target where you lose weight from. Burning fat is an all-body process. Energy is delivered to the muscles via the bloodstream, NOT from being absorbed from surrounding fat stores. Working the thighs will develop the thigh muscles, but will do absolutely nothing about the overlying layer of fat.

What you can do is to continue to reduce your overall body fat through a combination of cardio, all-body strength training and watching your intake, and some of it will naturally come off the inner thighs.

While the quadriceps are some of the largest and strongest in the body (and thus will burn the most calories), the adductors (inner thigh muscles) are small and difficult to isolate effectively. You are much better off working the whole thigh, than trying to work the adductors alone.

I've never been good a targeting problem areas, but as I get closer to my goal weight I'm more concerned about toning up problem areas. So if any one has suggestions on toning up my inner thigh area that would be greatly appreciated. I'm always up for trying something new. emoticon
