Exercises that target specific muscle groups do not necessarily help you loose weight, but they do help you obtain muscle tone. To loose weight you have to do aerobic exercise, meaning that you have to use enough of your large muscle groups in moderate activity to cause a little shortness of breath but you should still be able to speak without panting. You need to maintain aerobic exercise for at least a half hour, but a full hour is better. That is the only way to reduce any kind of body fat. Sometimes abdominal muscles become lax and crunches can help tighten and pull in your abdomen, but it isn't getting rid of fat.
