Truth About Stomach Exercises

May 18, 2008
As far back as I can remember, the topic of losing stomach fat has always been one of the most discussed subjects of every fitness enthusiast. Everyone wants to loose stomach fat, that's a giving. However hardly anyone really knows how to successfully lose stomach fat. I hope to show you what will aid you in burning belly fat. Pay close attention as you are going to learn a few myths about abdominal exercises and miracle ab diets or machines.

First of all lets get this out of the way so we can focus on the more important information. Please, you need to know and understand that all of those special weight loss pills or late night infomercials that promote the latest state of the art ab gadget do not work. I repeat they do not work. Also it's really important to note that crunches really don't work as good as most people think.

You see the problem is this... the majority of the information that you find online or in magazines will tell you to just do more crunches and once that becomes easier, do even more crunches. Have crunches giving you the flat abs that you want? No of course not.

Lets change the mindset of having to isolate your stomach in order to lose stomach fat. Rather lets focus on elimination fat. The funny thing about fat is, it is really not so easy to pinpoint where the fat will fall off of. However we can predict that by doing special movements you will burn far greater amounts of fat from all over your body, yes even your abs, thighs, and arms. What are these special movements? Multi-joint exercises are their name!

Exercises that work the large muscle groups of the legs, upper and lower back, and chest give you the biggest metabolic bang for your buck in terms of abdominal fat loss. Combining these types of big multi-joint exercises in high intensity super-set, tri-set, or circuit fashion gives you the biggest fat-burning and metabolism boosting response from your workouts.

Trust me my friend when I tell you that what you just read is one of the most covered up secret among personal trainers. If everyone knew what you just read; most people would not need a personal trainer....

This next fact on losing stomach fat is going to be so important to your success. Even if you were to follow the exercise recommendations that were just made but neglected to do so at a resistance level that will cause a metabolic shock, you most likely will not see flat abdominals.

Generally, higher resistance abdominal exercises that provide a much larger stimulus to the abs come in the form of exercises that involve raising/curling the legs and pelvis either upward or inward closer to the trunk. A couple great examples of these higher resistance abdominal exercises are hanging leg raises or knee raises using a "pelvic curl up", or an exercise like lying hip thrusts. Many times, the same people that can do 50 or 100 crunches, can't even complete more than 2 or 3 properly executed hanging leg raises.

If you really want to get firmer and flatter abdominals, remember that losing that extra belly fat is going to be the MOST important factor. Also, when it comes to abdominal-specific exercises, always remember higher resistance exercises that involve curling/raising the legs and pelvis upward or inward are what develops the abs to the best extent possible.
