Belly fat, hmph. So stubborn! If you're tired of trying to get rid of it, unsuccessfully, you're in the right place. I'm going to share what you ACTUALLY need to include in your workouts to make your belly look flatter. Plus, I'm very excited to offer you a free full-body-fat-burning-workout session! But first, let's dive into my workout programming secrets...
Switch On Your Inner Corset
Firstly, I teach my clients to engage their deepest core muscles. We do this through core exercises, but they're different from crunches. It takes a little mind-body connection, and when you master this, your abs can start looking great fast, especially as they help improve your overall posture. Standing tall instantly makes you look leaner.
Work Large Muscle Groups
I know you've been told that you can't spot reduce fat, and you probably don't really believe it... well, in addition to switching on your inner corset, here’s why you need to work other parts:
Working out large muscle groups - like your legs with squats or your back with rows - makes you burn loads of calories during a workout. These muscles also need calories to recover, so consumed calories are burned by your muscles instead of being stored as fat. All of my client programs include strength training.
Stress increases cortisol, and cortisol causes your body to store fat in your belly. I address this in workouts by including cardio, which is an excellent cortisol burner and a feel-good endorphin releaser, and by finishing each session with a substantial stretching session and restorative yoga.
Now here's the exciting part: if you want to try out this kind of workout with a buddy, for a limited time you can grab a free live workout with me. I will guide you through a full-body fat-burning workout that incorporates all of these elements to help you achieve a flatter belly.
