I was at a barbeque yesterday (yeah, I get down like dat. What, what?)and a friend of the family asked me-
“What exercise can I do to get this fat off my belly”?
This is a question every fitness professional has been asked over a hundred times or more. The six pack is the ultimate symbol of fitness and beauty in today’s youth oriented society.
I preceded to share the common knowledge in the fitness community (although sometimes hidden) that “there is none.”
There is no one magic exercise for eliminating belly fat or any other body fat for that matter.
Crunches, sit ups and the entire host of core training exercises will not eliminate belly fat, no matter how disciplined you are about doing them. What they will do is give you strong, well defined abdominal muscles that will remain hidden behind a burka of fat.
A burka is a over garment warn by women in many Muslim communities around the world. It hides the women’s body and face, protecting her from the gazes of the opposite sex and protects the men from having their lustful thoughts stirred up.
Your tight, strong, intense workout defined abs will never be the focus of attention.
Only you will know just how strong,toned and beautiful they are.
But your not married you say. Oh, well that’s different. You should have said something earlier. To get rid of the belly fat that not only hides your sexy abs from the world, but is also a major risk factor for heart disease, you will have to make some dietary changes.
Bottom line, six pack abs are the result of a combination of proper diet, core strength training and aerobic exercise.
You need all three to get the abs you want. To save time you can do intense interval training that delivers both strength and aerobic training benefits.
You can still get the beach body you desire in time for you summer vacay or weekends at the beach. Contact me at 973-658-6055.
