Get Rid Of Stomach Fat With Exercises To Create An Afterburn
To get rid of stomach fat many people wrongly think they need to do exercises specific to the belly such as sit-ups or abdominal crunches. These exercises are of value but if your goal is to get rid of stomach fat they will do little to make you happy.
The better way to rid your midsection of excess fat is to perform whole body exercises. This short article shares how performing exercises that incorporate a lot of muscles at one time help you create an “afterburn” which boosts your metabolism and keeps your body and belly burning fat more efficiently for up to 36 hours after your workout is over.
Get rid of stomach fat
Fat deposits around the waist are a common problem for men. Women fall into two body shape categories, they are either naturally apples, which means they have always had a higher tendency to deposit fat in the belly or they are naturally pears, which means they are less likely to deposit fat at the waist and more likely to store it in the hips and thighs. If you think pear shaped women are lucky, then think again. All women tend to store fat in the stomach region more readily after menopause.
So what do you do about removing this bulge?
The answer is not to target the belly, but instead to perform exercises that incorporate more muscles so you get an overall boost to your metabolism and your body becomes a more efficient fat burner.
To be specific, you want to perform whole body movement exercises. This is different than what you may be used to where you pick up a couple dumbbells, do a set of bicep curls and then put the dumbbells down to rest.
Whole body exercises have you work multiple regions of your body at the same time so you are working multiple muscles at the same time. For instance, a squat that moves right into an overhead press with 10 pound dumbbells.
The other facet of this type of exercise is to keep your heart and breathing rate elevated. To do this you will move from one exercise to the next in a consistent flow with little rest in between. Yes, this can sound demanding but here is the great part. Your workout is completed in as little as 20 minutes, yet because you worked out smart your body will burn calories more efficiently for the next 24 to 36 hours.
Stop wasting time and energy on sit-ups and crunches and switch to whole body exercises. You will boost your metabolism, reduce your workout time and burn belly fat faster and longer thanks to the afterburn.
