It would make sense that the place where the hormones like GH/test are going to help stimulate myogenic growth/repair would also stimulate B-oxidation in ajacent fat cells.

It really seems like high intensity is needed for this to occur though. If you're doing high intensity work though you might as well just do it over the whole body... so you would get the benefits everywhere, heh.
