Did you know that if you’re trying to lose your stomach fat, the best exercise you should do is NOT an ab exercise? It is actually interval cardio! That’s right. There’s however a difference between interval cardio and cardio. In our case, we’re talking about interval sprinting – you can check out more about losing belly fat in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0jFhHLpLhI.
Otherwise, please read on.
Losing fat and building muscles are 2 different things. First of all, let us take it that you have the goal of wanting a slim and toned stomach. That hourglass shape!
To look slim and have a skinny stomach, your first goal should be to lose belly fat first, before trying to tone up the muscles underneath, otherwise all the work and ab exercises you perform will not be seen. Therefore, you should first perform interval sprinting. Interval sprinting is basically a circuit exercise where you will sprint for approximately 10 metres to and fro, rest for a short moment and then repeat. This is a great form of exercise to lose belly fat.
The 2nd part is about toning the muscles underneath your belly – namely your abdominal muscles. You should always only perform lower ab exercises. This is because lower ab exercises will activate your upper AND lower abs, but upper ab exercises will ONLY activate your upper abs. Therefore, to save time and be more efficient, only perform lower ab exercises such as alternating leg raises.
It is one of the most problematic parts when it comes to maintaining a good figure for women – the belly. Most women have some fat on the belly, and most of them do not like it one single bit. In fact, losing belly fat is one of the top most asked questions by women to personal trainers around the world, followed by the thighs/butt, then upper arms.
Here are some of the steps to help you make your stomach look slimmer – in reality, and not through the use of clothing illusions.
Step 1: Reduce the amount of carbohydrates and simple sugars you take in. Did you know that the number one culprit when it comes to dieting mistakes for women’s weight loss is carbohydrates? It is not fatty foods that cause women to gain belly fat. It is carbohydrates.
Step 2: Get into a caloric deficit state. You need to burn off more calories from your exercises that you perform + your body’s natural metabolism than you take in through food. It’s a combination of both intake and output and you need to utilize and leverage properly on both to get into a caloric deficit so that you can keep losing weight continuously.
Step 3: Learn from a proper coach. A mentor is somebody who has done it himself/herself and has guided many people and successfully helped them achieve weight loss success before. Here is a great YouTube coaching video by popular AlvinChua Women Weight Loss Coach on how to lose belly fat for women in an effective manner.
