There's nothing more attractive or sexier than a tightly carved out midsection. Most people agree that no other body part screams sex appeal more than a great six pack. The attention that a tight and lean midsection can give a person has caused the marketing world to go crazy for ab workouts.
You can find tons of abdominal training gadgets, gimmicks and programs, all of which promise to help you get six pack abs in record time. One would think that, with all of this so readily available, millions of people would have a sexy stomach. Just one trip to the beach will prove that this isn't the case. In fact, the average waist size has increased to an all time high recently.
Why do all the high-promise ab programs fail so miserably? The answer is surprisingly simple.
These programs on "how to lose fat belly" focus on traditional and ineffective ab exercises!
Traditional ab exercises work the abs but they don't actually burn body fat.
Fortunately enough, there are much more effective exercises that can carve out a nice six pack AND melt your belly fat.
Therefore, let's take a look at how to lose belly fat.
How to Lose Fat Belly - Essential Tips
- Perform full body resistance training workouts. Resistance training stimulates your metabolism unlike any other activity. This is the cornerstone of any good belly fat loss program. These types of workouts should only consist of exercises that work multiple muscle groups at the same time. A few examples are: One Arm Dumbbell Snatch, Modified Kettlebell Turkish Get Up, Squat Press Combo.
Unlike traditional ab exercises, these movements engage the entire body and have a high caloric cost. In addition to burning a lot of calories during your workout, these exercises increase your metabolism, which will force your body to burn fat all day long even while resting.
- Do high intensity cardio because it will burn much more calories than low intensity workouts (per unit of time). Of course, they will also elevate your metabolism to a significant degree. These workouts are a bit more difficult to perform, but they require less time. You can get a great fat loss effect in as little as ten minutes!
The best exercises for these high intensity workouts are: sprinting, bodyweight jumps, rope jumping, power wheel walks, etc.
- Perform abs exercises that work the entire body. These exercises give you the greatest benefit. Isolation type ab exercises don't burn belly fat. Switch your crunches to medicine ball pikes and see the difference for yourself.
- Maintain a proper nutrition. Excessive amounts of belly fat is often an indicative of chronically high insulin levels. To keep your insulin levels in check avoid sugars, flour products, saturated fats and processed foods.
A proper diet includes whole foods such as: vegetables, fresh fruits, nuts, seeds, whole grains, lean proteins (from fish, egg whites, turkey, chicken breast and small amounts of non-fat dairy products.
Follow the above tips and you'll understand the secret of "how to lose fat belly?". These simple steps will help you get a six pack in no time!
