Sagar Tewatia – Mumbai Uncensored, 5th March 2022
Almost everyone wants to change certain parts of their body, and you must have seen a few people practicing crunches and another similar exercises every day to change a particular body part, aren’t you?
What exactly are they trying to achieve by doing this?
Maybe, they are trying to change the targeted body part or to remove the fat from that particular area.
Is it possible to remove fat from a particular area, or let’s say, is spot reduction possible?
Before we jump to this, let’s understand what spot reduction is.
Spot reduction refers to the claim that “fat from a particular body part can be targeted for removal through the exercises of specific muscles in that desired area”.
An example of spot reduction is exercising the abdominal area to get rid of excess fat on the stomach so that the abdominals would be visible.
This theory of targeting specific body parts is prevalent; many people focus only on problematic areas rather than exercising their entire bodies.
Let’s think of whether spot reduction is possible or not?
There is no evidence available to date that can prove that reducing fat from a particular area is possible; still, many controversies are going on worldwide on spot reduction, but we suggest you consider a few logical facts to understand this:
- When we gain fat, we acquire it in our entire body. Similarly, reducing fat decreases from our whole body and not from a particular area.
- There is an entire process behind fat reduction and muscle development; we break the muscles by training them, we provide the required nutrition and sufficient rest to get them repaired. So, alone workout cannot transform a particular area.
- If we keep on spending our energy in the wrong direction, we won’t be able to give our 100% on the other parts.
- We can’t imagine a guy from the obese category having six-pack abs visible; we hope you got the point.
We are sure that now you have a few logical facts and got the entire fat reduction process.
To reduce fat, we have to follow the whole process, which includes workout + nutrition + time to recover + patience, and we should not target a particular body part, but we should train our complete body.
Muscles will grow, and fat will go down; that’s how we can achieve our dream.
Please don’t fall into this trap of spot reduction!

Marburg Virus kills two people, the first cases confirmed in Ghana.
Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 21st July 2022:
Ghana officially confirmed two cases of the Marburg virus, a highly contagious disease comparable to Ebola, on Sunday, after two patients who subsequently died tested positive for the virus earlier this month.
On July 10, tests carried out in Ghana revealed positive results; however, the World Health Organization stated that the cases had to be confirmed by a laboratory in Senegal.
Ghana Health Service (GHS) released a statement saying that additional testing at the Institute Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, “has validated the results.”
Despite the fact that none of the contacts has yet shown any symptoms, GHS is taking steps to lessen the chance of the virus spreading, including isolating all of them.
The Marburg virus has just recently spread to West Africa twice. Guinea reported the region’s first incidence of the virus last year, but no other cases have been found.\
“(Ghanaian) health authorities have responded swiftly, getting a head start preparing for a possible outbreak. This is good because, without immediate and decisive action, Marburg can easily get out of hand,” said Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.
Wimbledon 2022 Women Singles Final Highlights: Elena Rybakina defeats Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, clinches Maiden Wimbledon Title
Shobit Chandola, Mumbai Uncensored, 16th July 202:
On 9th July, 2022 the Wimbledon got its winner in the Women’s Singles with none other than Russian born Kazak, Elena Rybakina who defeated the Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur with 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Wimbledon this year, for the first time in a while, witnessed 2 finalists seeking their maiden title. What could be termed as unpredictability is that the fan’s favourite contenders were all eliminated before. While the Record 7 Wimbledon title winner Serena Williams was shocked by H. Tan in the 1st Round, it was Paula Badosa underperforming in the Round of 16 and the astonishing defeat of the Former Wimbledon Champion Simona Halep in the Semifinal.That too came from the end of Elena Rybakina who vanquished Simona in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.
As could be seen in the epic thriller, the first set was won by Ons Jabeur whose drop shots and forehand made Rybakina go for many unforced errors. But post conceding the 1st set, Rybakina changed the gear for all the trailing in 1st set and ensured enough aces and volley to make it 6-2 in the 2nd set for 1-1 tie. For the 3rd set, Elena led with 2-0 but got holded by Jabeur to make it 3-2 but outshined Jabeur with a 5-2, finally breaking the latter’s serve in the decider.
Not to forget the incredible journey of Ons Jabeur so far. It was the World No 2 Ons Jabeur who became the first Arab and african women to become the Wimbledon finalist but wasn’t at her best to defeat the 17th seed Elena Rybakina who switched her nationality to Kazakhstan in 2018 (owing to the lack of funding and infrastructure for her game) before representing Russia. Just like Elena who wrote the history as the first kazakh to be claimed as winner in the Wimbledon, it could have been the same to Ons too being the first Arab and African women.Though the losing cause made the Ons emotional, it was her grit, determination and the post match interview which reflected her strong character.
In the Post Match Interview, the Introvert Champion Elena had her say on the Wimbledon title. She stated “I was super nervous before the match, during the match and I’m happy it’s finished, to be honest. Really I have never felt something like this. I want to thank the crowd for the support, it was unbelievable these two weeks,” the 23-year-old said. But also I want to congratulate Ons for a great match and everything you have achieved. I think you are an inspiration for everybody. You have an amazing game. We don’t have someone like this on tour and it is a joy to play against you. I ran so much, I don’t think I need to do fitness anymore”. With this title, Elena became the youngest player to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since 2011.
