Reduce waist fat = Crunches, Crunches & more Crunches!???March 29, 2012 at 4:39 am | Posted in Fitness | Leave a comment
Wrong! Eliminate the usual thinking of doing thousands and thousands of crunches or sit-ups in order to lose the fats around your waistline. Our body works in a different way. One thing for sure, you cannot (YES, You Can’t!) tell your body which part (arms, stomach, thighs etc) to lose fats. Your body will lose it IF you carry out a good, intensive overall body workout.
There is a common misconception that in order to lose my fats around my tummy area, I have to do exercises like sit-ups and crunches. First thing first, many people I see around doing crunches or sit-ups are already doing it the wrong way. What’s worse (and it’s a fact), doing crunches or sit-ups is of little/no help in shredding waistline fats.
Our abdominal are already there in the first place. What’s covering it is layers of excess fats that we have accumulate over the years. Crunches / sit-ups are not effective. To build up good abdominal strength (Your Core), do plenty of isometric exercises like Plank variations, Squat Hold etc.
So, what should you do today in order to shred your fats?
In terms of Exercises:
– Focus and work on the major muscles group of your body: Thighs, Chest, Back
– Carry out a total body workout
In terms of Diet:
– Reduce your sugar intake (Less soft drinks, less sugar to your coffee/tea)
– Reduce your oily, fatty food (Less fast food, fried food, cookies)
