Who does not want to be slim and attractive - man or woman - every body
like a well shaped body and wish they had one as their age advances. The
weight gain most often is like the age that creeps up on us - secretly
engulfing us until the signs of aging surprise us in the mirror. All of
sudden you would observe that along with tiny wrinkles you also gain a
rounder belly cause of fat.
In most cases, if caught in very initial stages, the weight around the
belly can be controlled with a definite correction in the diet. However,
once the fat has established itself around your middle, it would be
quite difficult to get rid of stubborn belly fat.
Exercises for removing stubborn belly fat are given below:
Standard crunches - You need to sleep on your back with
your knees bent, and then with your hands kept on the chest lift your
shoulders off the ground. Change the crunches to the next level after a
week or so, by keeping your hands at the side of the head and lastly
keeping your hands above your head.
Reverse curls - lying down on the back with the knees
bent, pull up your knees to the chest, keeping the hips on the floor to
the maximum possible extent. While doing the
exercises, concentrate on
your breathing technique.
Combination of both the crunches - sometimes, when you are
experienced enough with the first two exercises, you could combine them
and continue with this until you find in yourself the desire results
and start loosing stomach fat.
Myths Against Facts
Spot reductions are possible naturally - there is no way
you could reduce only the fat that has accumulated around your midriff
through exercises. Other than surgical removal of this fat or
liposuction, there is no way you could get rid of this fat. No exercises
known to humans today can only target the fat around the midriff.
Ab exercises would replace the fat with muscle mass - this
is another major myth. There is no way by which the abs exercises would
replace the fat around the middle unless you create a deficit in the
intake of the calorie. One of the best ways to achieve this is to design
a workout consisting of strength training, aerobic exercises and a much
Quick-fix exercises - there is no such thing as quick-fix
exercises for reducing the fat you have accumulated around your middle.
You would find many advertisements announcing exactly this slogan.
However, be aware that there is no such thing. You would need to undergo
a whole regime of exercises that aims at removing fat from all over
your body and only then you would find relief from the fat that has
accumulated around your belly
Posture is not important - there could be nothing further
from truth. The way you stand can determine the way your abdomen is
shaped. You need to pay attention on the way you stand. In case you do
not know what is a correct posture - knees should be ever so slightly
bent, your shoulders totally drawn back and your neck and head evenly
balanced (your head should not be seen as leaning forward).
