Strip that body fat with cardio
Cardio is a really useful tool to strip down your body fat to reveal those abs that have been in hiding. A popular and effective type of cardio to perform is HIIT – high intensity interval training.
This is a really smart way to do your cardio as it has been shown in studies to burn maximum calories while preserving lean muscle mass. Basically you train at an all out effort for a short period of time then go at a slower pace for either the same amount of time or longer depending on your abilities. It is also quick and keeps the calorie burn going long after you go home. Usually between five to ten intervals does the job nicely!
Don’t waste time trying to spot reduce body fat
This is one of the biggest myths in the fitness industry. You cannot spot reduce fat in one particular area. However, you can train the muscles so that there will be better definition there after you lose some body fat.
This is where specific abdominal training comes in useful. By exercising regularly and dialling in your diet, you will find as your body fat reduces, your abs will begin to appear!
