Monday Morning Fit Tip:
FLATTEN YOUR ABS FASTER
WITH THE FIT TIPS BELOW!
1. Make time for cardio
If you want to burn the most belly fat, a Duke University study confirms that aerobic exercise (including cardio classes
, walking/running, elliptical & much more!) is the most effective in burning that deep, visceral belly fat.
2. Forget frozen dinners
and other pre-packaged foods. They’re loaded with salt, which causes you to feel sluggish and look bloated. Focus on fruits and vegetables instead because they’re packed with water.
3. Gossip on the Go
Instead of catching up with friends over food and drinks, suggest a reunion on the move – you’ll work out harder if you have an exercise buddy. Suggest a weekly walk & talk session, meet on the ellipticals or in water aerobics. You’ll motivate each other to get moving while you grow even closer.
4. Cut Out Some Carbs
When you decrease the carbs in your diet, you temporarily train your body to access stored carbohydrates called glycogen and burn them off, while also eliminating excess stored fluids.
Trim back on your daily carbs by having eggs for breakfast, making your sandwich open-faced with only one slice of bread, and packing protein-rich snacks such as turkey slices, low-fat string cheese, seeds, and nuts.
5. Deflate your Muffin Top with the Roll-up
This move challenges your abs through a full range of motion, targeting more muscle fibers than a standard crunch alone. Not sure how to do a Roll-Up? Click here
