There are a number of ways in which you can eliminate belly fat, and achieve the kind of abs you’ve always wanted. The trick is to find exercises that are going to work for you. Many believe that crunches are not an effective exercise to help you achieve your goals. This is because they do not target all of the muscles necessary to burn fat and build muscle. There are other, better stabilization exercises available to you. Many of these are detailed in the new book, The New Rules of Lifting for Abs.
Exercises For Your Abs
Try some of these exercises, and see if they help you to eliminate belly fat, while also working to give you the kind of abs you’ve always wanted:
• Side-plank exercises: Although it is a considerably more difficult exercise than a normal plank exercise, the side-plank truly puts your body to work, by forcing you to keep your body supported with only 2 points of contact. This exercise can take a few tries to get a rhythm down, but it is well worth trying to incorporate side-plank exercises into your routine. You’re going to feel the burn pretty early on.
• Walk-Out from push-up exercises: This exercise forces you to utilize your arms, legs, hips, and abs, but doing so means toughening up your core considerably. Add to this particular exercise by moving with your hands extended towards the right and left sides.
• Alligator drag exercises: What’s nice about this exercise is how much it covers. The alligator drag combines cardio with strength training and creating meaningful stability. The end result is an exercise that delivers on two fronts. It works quickly, and it works for long-term body-shaping plans. Make sure you have plenty of space to perform this particular exercise effectively.
To get the most out of these exercises, follow the directions for each of them carefully. Be certain that you also include a healthy diet with these and other exercises. This can mean a lot of things, but you’re definitely going to want to start eliminating foods with loads of fat sugar and/or carbs. Once you’ve done this, start looking at foods that are high in proteins and fiber.
Exercise is crucial to cutting away stomach fat, but you’re only going to go so far, if you don’t start taking your diet seriously, too. You also need to remember that maintaining a certain posture while performing any of these exercises is extremely important.
