Spot Reduction for Upper Arms?

Hey coach,

In the article above you talk about how it’s possible to get some spot reduction fat loss in the belly by mixing bouts of high intensity cardio with ab work over a period of 15 minutes or so.
Would this work with the upper arms as well?
I have pretty good sized arms but they’ve always lacked the definition that I want and they have little to no vascularity. My abs, back, and chest have good definition, but just never my upper arms. I feel like there’s stubborn fat up there.
Would mixing bouts of assault bike sprints with bicep/tricep exercises like curls and push downs possibly burn some fat on my upper arms and maybe give them a little more definition?

Thanks for everything you do man!
