    Have you tried walking on an 8-9 incline at 3-4 mph for 45 min- an hour? I find that works wonders for me.

    How long have you been working on this? Fat doesn't disappear overnight - it takes work.

    I had great success with some pretty high intensity rowing for about 45 mins a day - five days a week.

    That worked fine for the most part but now I'm down to the last little bits of stubborn fat like you are - really not much at all. I've been experimenting with Tabata Protocol - still dialing it in but it seems to have promise for me.

    Saves a helluva lot of time too.

    If you've just started training, then HIIT three days a week, on the days alternate to your resistance training days for ~12 minutes is sufficient for effective and successful fat loss if you're giving 100% in your efforts, and have your nutrition and the rest of your training on track.

    Try doing Guerilla Cardio (it's what I do, and have done variations of since 2004) - doing it running is best:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 8 x 20 sec sprint effort (as hard as you can go) / 10 sec easy or recovery
    c. 4 min jogging

    It doesn't matter what your heart rate is doing - and the higher it is during cardio, the better you are going to be re fitness and ability to burn fat.

    If you use the treadmill when doing efforts, get on for the effort, and get off to rest between efforts - this is what I do (I start out at 8-9 miles an hour for 1-4 minutes, and then I set the treadmill to anywhere from 10-12 miles an hour for my efforts, and get on and off between efforts).

    You don't need anything but the Basic Staples (creatine, multivitamin/antioxidant, good fats, protein, and BCAAs, honestly - certainly not d4, HMB, or L-Glutamine. You can use BCAAs - pre and post, or whenever you need them. And you're already using a fat burner.

    No worries

    I'm not a runner either, LOL - what I gave you was just an example of how you could utilize a treadmill for efforts (sprinting outside is really the BEST way to so HIIT, IMO); you would obviously use a pace that is challenging for you, but that you can handle without falling off the treadmill. You don't need to do effort for 30-45 seconds - as I said in an earlier post, 20 seconds is adequate enough, and if it's something you're not used to, trust me, it IS enough!

    Which is good - INTENSITY (albeit doesn't have to be long) gets results (is your NUTRITION AND rest of your TRAINING are in line).

    Just experiment with different things - try skipping or boxing or something (both great cardio modes), and you can do variations of HIIT with them as well. Start thinking outside the box - even swimming sometimes (swimming is very taxing on the body, and even the slowest pace if you're not used to it is intense).

    Maybe you need to cut your cardio back to 3-4 days a week and just ramp up the intensity. Like I said earlier, alternating cardio with your resistance training days and having a day off is a good schedule. Remember that more is not always better - you want to train SMART.

    For effective and successful fat loss, you do NOT need to go 1,000 calories below Maintenance - ~500 calories less tops is MORE than adequate, especially if you are ALREADY creating more of a caloric deficit by adding in cardio or more training!

    Ever tried jumping rope? I've found that to be the best for me.

    What I do is I jump rope for about 3 - 5 minutes, once that hits I hit the ground and do abs, weighted sit ups, then lats and then lower abs, then get right up and do another 3 - 5. If you do this 3 - 5 times you should have done a very decent workout.

    You can always wear chin weights to further make it difficult and heavier jump rope.

    Just a thought, not to mention it's one of the most fun workouts out there.

    You don't have to not miss a jump... Just whenever you do stop, just get back on it. With time you'll get better and it is a killer workout
