If you want to slim that tummy down and lose those ‘Love Handles’. You are going to have to do the proper physical exercises. This is crucial, you need to target all of the muscles surrounding your core region. Burn the fat and get that toned look that you are after.
You need a workout plan that will get you the results that you desire. I have outlined five workout routines that you should include in your programme so that you can enjoy a lot of improvements quicker.
If you are not sure of the exercises below simply search online for videos that will further illustrate exactly what I am describing below or ask a trainer at your local gymnasium.
You should do three sets of ten, of each exercise.
These exercises should be added to your fitness workout and are not enough on their own.
This exercise will not only work your abs but will also work all of the muscle groups lining your back as well.
Place the front of the arms on the floor holding your body up off the floor and stretch your legs out behind you, balancing on your toes. Hold for as long as possible and then repeat.
This type of sit up is very easy and straightforward. You really need to do this type of exercise as it is a great ‘Belly’ toner. For this exercise you need to lie on the floor, on your back.
Bring your upper body up off the floor as you bring your knees up to meet it. It should appear a little like an accordion as you perform this exercise. Pause at the top and then slowly lower your upper body and knees/legs until you are lying flat again. It is important to roll your upper body up off the floor so as not to put pressure on your lower spine.
The bicycle exercise is another great exercise for your ‘Tummy’ that will help to firm those love handles fast. To execute this one elevate the legs to some extent above the floor while you bring one knee into the chest. At the same time as doing so, concurrently twist the body so the other side comes to meet that knee and then reverse directions for the next rep.
Exercise Ball Crunches
This type of exercise is brilliant for targeting the muscles that can be hard to reach, deep within your core. You will be lying on an exercise ball while doing your crunches. The reason being that you will need to use extra muscles to retain your balance, whilst doing the, ‘Crunch’.
Lying Leg Raises
Lying leg raises are great for targeting the lower abdominal muscle groups. You should lie flat on the floor and then slowly raise your legs up until you bring them all of the way up to 90 degrees, pause for a moment and then lower them until they are hovering just above the ground. Do not allow them to quite touch the ground and then repeat. This will keep the tension on your abs and keep them in a consistently contracted state.
Are you still struggling to lose that stubborn fat that is covering your stomach? Until you lose that fat and open the curtains, you will not be able to see them. It is the stomach fat that is covering your six-pack. This is the main reason that people can’t get a flat, solid six-pack. Your body has to be at 10% body fat or less. You can run through as many weight training routines as you like. Do a thousand plus sit-ups each and every day but, you still are not going to have a six-pack to show!
If you want a six-pack that will make others envious then you need to listen and listen good to what I am about to share with you!
I am going to highlight the main points and strategies that you have to know in order to get rid of that stubborn stomach fat that is covering them up and develop your abdominals to their peak.
Get these secret points right and you will soon be showing off your totally ripped abs. You will be a WOW! At the beach, the pool and most definitely in the bedroom. You will feel great when you see how many admirers you have, even better they will be complementing you on your, ‘Washboard’ stomach.
Do not simply concentrate on your abs. You need to focus on your whole body. Of course you need to work on your abdominals but, you do not have to kill them. Too many people work on their stomach exercises and waste so much time on them. You have to concentrate more on burning fat. Abs exercises do not concentrate on burning fat. They are aimed at tightening the muscles. OK spend a little time on them but more importantly ‘Open The Curtains’, lose the fat. Get them out on show.
You cannot ‘Spot Burn’ fat. You will lose fat from all parts of your body. No matter whet exercises or diet you are on the fat loss will be from all over your body. You really have to understand this otherwise you will end up going around in circles and eventually giving up.
You need a full body exercising program that maximises both your metabolic rate and your hormonal response.
The secret method, is to concentrate on your whole body and not one area, even if it is your abs that you are trying to rip!
Another secret is that you do not need to do cardiovascular exercises like every abdomen building plan seems to include. Anything from 30 to 60 minutes of cardio 3 and 4 days per week is advised. Rubbish, in fact you do not need to do any. You need to concentrate on getting as lean as possible and speed up your metabolic rate whilst burning the fat. Steady-pace cardio is not as effective at strengthening the heart as many people believe that it is. Your heart needs to be trained at handling a wide different amount of varying stresses that everyday life throws at it and you also need to lose that body fat that you have been storing for far too long. Cardio just does not cut it.
You need a weight lifting program. Once you have the right one 30 minutes per day is enough, in fact 30 minutes is more than enough! You should lift a weight that you can barely lift 10 times. Do 3 sets of 10 as quickly as you can. Only a short relax between each set of 10. The rest of your weight lifting should be carried out in the same way. Maximum weight, Exercise all of the main muscle areas and that is it.
As long as you are on a good six meals per day diet, that is it. No processed foods, just get enough calories and proteins and you are away. No supplements or additives needed. Just a simple nutritious diet. It will allow you to burn off all of the stubborn fat whilst also giving you the benefit of feeling more energetic and ALIVE!
