I just want great abs. How about you? Are you happy with all that fat around your waist? What are you doing about it, crunches?
But will your daily crunches help you to burn your belly fat? Let’s find out if crunches help you lose belly fat and what exercises you should do to get some great abs for the summer. Before we get into the workout for great abs , I wanna make a few key points first.
Six Pack Abs Are Made in the Kitchen Not the Gym
Great abs are made in the kitchen, not so much in the gym. A lot of people are going in the gym really doing abs every day for an hour to lose belly fat and this is almost pointless.
A lot of times this will gonna do actually more harm than good.
People think they can spot reduce fat, and this thing doesn’t exist. So if you have fat in your abdomen region, and you’re going to do a bunch of crunches to get that fat off, it won’t work! Muscle and fat are 2 whole different systems.
So when you work out your abs you’re building the ab muscle, but the fat over it doesn’t change at all.
One of the reasons I’m telling you to not go heavy with your abs in the gym is that you want to keep a nice waist-hip ratio for women and a nice shoulder-waist ratio for men. Even if you are a woman or you’re a man, you would like to have a thin and narrow waist, right? Well, working a lot on your abs will eventually make your waist wider and that is what you don’t want at all.
Of course, exercising helps! But if you have fat over your abs, you’re not gonna see those great abs you’re building while doing crunches. So first things first: make sure you’re eating the right food for your body in order to lose maintain weight. Even when you work your abs, stress them a little but don’t go heavy with them.
