    It's generally the last place men lose excess body fat. On top of doing some of the exercises in this forum, it's important to consider your diet. It was only after closely examining my diet that I got rid of what you call "fat on the lower back."

    Good luck.

    Try eating better and mix that up with a healthy dose of cardio. I like running and biking when it's nice out, and days like today I do cardio kickboxing.

    There is no way to target specific areas for fat loss. All you can do is exercise and function at a calorie deficit (eat less than you burn) and eventually your fat stores will dwindle. Lower-back fat and that slight softness on the belly are the "spare tire." Men's bodies are loathe to get rid of that spare tire more than anything else.

    As I prepare for a contest, that always the very last place to drop, the low back and rear.

    Interval training, along with a moderate gylcemic index diet, and essential fats, but, low carbs, along with frequent meals is the ticket. It's just science.

    Do anything you want for you're back

    ... and then make sure that you do a lot of refrigerator turn arounds

    where you walk right up to the refrigerator ... and turn around

    There is no spot reduction - you can only lose weight overall

    That's great! I have to remember that for my fat person consultations: refrigerator turnarounds, the exercise of the day!

    Also, Branson, never forget, the more muscle you have, the easier it is to stay lean (with that muscle burning fat non-stop).

    Just get the cals down lower the training harder.

    Wether you go low carb or low protein its neither hear nor there it the total calorie intake that matters.

    Hydration is the best one, then when you have shed those love handles pack the muscle on and you can waive them bye bye for good hopefully unless you eat eat eat far greater than you train train train
