I was going through a my favorite magaizines this morning with the goal of finding something fun and maybe even a few sex tips of something for the holidays… but I came across this (of course it’s still fun though)… just not sexy.
A recent magazine (Women’s Health) as posted an article giving a 15 minute ab workout that will give abs quick. Yes, I will agree that the exercises are pretty good but the big issue comes from the fact that to get abs you have to lose body fat. This doesn’t come from a 15 minute ab focused workout session.
It comes from intense full body workouts that burn lots of fat and shed calories so that your ab muscles can show through from under that belly layer. Of course it’s important to strengthen the abs to help you move better, have better posture, better twisting and be pain free. So I am not crossing the workout off all together I just think it is VITAL to realize that these isolated workouts aren’t going to transform your body or have you losing inches.
It’s still impossible to pick and choose where you want to lose fat, your body gets to decide for you. So when you lose belly fat you’re going to be sculptig your entire body!
