Working out would not shrink nor reduce the number of lipomas that you have.  Lipomas are benign adipose (fat) tumors that are resistant to exercise and diet

Timing of lipoma removal


Lipomas do not respond to diet and exercise, but tend to grow independently of caloric intake.  I would recommend early lipoma removal.
