Can anyone recommend a good fitness web site that has decent workout suggestions? I found that MSN had a nice fitness section, but other then that I haven't had much luck finding somewhere else that seemed reliable.

Has anyone ever heard of an excersize for fighting that lovely double chin? We always hear how to get tight abs, firm butt, killer arms, and great legs, but I've never heard anyone (fitness trainer or whoever it might be) address how to get rid of a double chin. When I was in Japan 3 years ago my neighbor let me borrow her Seveteen Japan magazines and they had this excersize (or what it looked it) for strengthening your chin section.

It involved leaning your head back comfortably and simply opening and closing your mouth, but every time you closed your mouth you wanted to make sure the muscles that the closed the mouth felt tight.

That's what it looked like according to the pictures. I can't read Japanese all that well. But maybe that might be something to try.

Re: Spot reducing, ie localized fat removal
Thanks for the info Min. I had read in fitness articles that situps were actually in a way bad or possibly harmful to the body. That it caused a lot of tension to the back muscles. Have you heard of that?

I should have known better that I can't centralize a certain spot on my body and hope by doing certain things it would make the fat go away. I don't have a double chin, but it would be nice to have a firmer chin just like it's nice to tone up the arms or something.
