There’s this myth going around that if wanna lose belly fat,
you gotta do a sh#t tonne of sit ups, crunches
and other “core” exercises.
May have something to do with those infomercials
you see coming on the tv at stupid o’clock.
All that super duper ab blaster 5 thousand sh#te.
The reality doing all those ab crunches will do sweet f#ck all
for that ned kelly you’ve spent years growing.
Apart from giving you a bad back & a hunched over posture,
it ain’t gonna do much else.
In reality, you can’t really just “spot fix” fat,
you lose it proportionately from your bodies stores.
So if you carry a belly of excess
Do the following:
> Do full body resistance training
> Eat reasonably well most of the time
(not that complicated when you think about it)
This will create the energy deficit need to tap into that
store room of fat you call a belly
and burn that sh#t off.
But unfortunately for many
the reality is,
most lads will go on a restrictive diet
and do a combination of long distance running
plus a stupid number of ab crunches.
Until they burn out & go back to their old habits,
accompanied with a bad back for their troubles.
If you disagree with strength training,
don’t click this testimonial link:
because it will decimate your argument
