What’s the Best Fat-Busting Exercise?
Once you’ve addressed your diet, exercise can truly begin to work its magic on your physique, and help boost fat loss even further. The trick to achieve flat abs is to incorporate the correct types of exercises.
High-intensity interval exercises are at the core of my Peak Fitness routine. This short intense training protocol improves muscle energy utilization and expenditure due to its positive effects on increasing muscle mass and improving muscle fiber quality. Muscle tissue burns three to five times more energy than fat tissues, so as you gain muscle, your metabolic rate increases, which allows you to burn more calories, even when you’re sleeping. Further, several studies have confirmed that exercising in shorter bursts with rest periods in between burns more fat than exercising continuously for an entire session.
High-intensity interval exercises is been used by conditioning coaches for literals hundreds of years (Roman and Spartan use this training modality) nowadays trends as HIIT (High Interval Intensity Training). To Learn More About HIIT Click Here
Does Ab work aid weight loss?
A strong abdominal wall will produce that six-pack look once you’ve lost sufficient amounts of subcutaneous fat. While ab workouts specifically may not help you reduce body fat, they still provide important benefits and should not be overlooked. Your abdominals are part of your body’s 29 core muscles, which are located mostly in your back, abdomen and pelvis. This group of muscles provides the foundation for movement throughout your entire body, and strengthening them can help protect and support your back, make your spine and body less prone to injury and help you gain greater balance and stability.
When you build your ab muscles, it’s like developing an internal corset that holds your gut in. By doing so, you help stabilize your spine, vertebrae and discs, which in turn can significantly reduce back pain and make it easier for you to lift heavy items, twist and turn and perform the movements required for a full life. Having a strong abdominal wall is very important for optimal body movement and gets increasingly more important with advancing age.
I want to finishing this article smashing the sit-up = 6pack myth. You could do billion of sit-ups, crunches, etc. weekly and you will not get the 6pack look. This is gain with great diet and highly metabolic exercises that burn subcutaneous fat (this is the layer of fat sitting on top of the rectus abdominis or so call 6pack)
