The Truth about your Stomach: Instant Fitness Gives you the Facts

True: You cannot lose weight in specific areas only; your body loses weight first where it puts it on first.
True: You can tone your stomach by doing abdominal workouts. You just cannot expect to burn the extra fat on your stomach by doing sit-ups alone.
True: you can get those abs you've always wanted. Click here to get them!
True: Cardio, especially interval training, is the best way to burn fat quickly.

Remember, your body is like a machine, all the parts must be working for something to change. In this case, you cannot just do abdominal workouts and expect your stomach to magically shrink three sizes. If you are carrying extra weight, you need to help your body burn more fat. The most efficient way to do this is through interval training. Interval training can be done on a treadmill, on foot, or on a stationary (or regular) bike. This workout includes high-intensity and low-intensity intervals, usually 30secs to 4mins long. For instance, if you are running on a treadmill (there is usually an Interval setting that you can customize), you should do about 30 seconds of sprinting and 30 seconds of walking. Repeat for about 20-30 minutes, or as long as you can handle. Over time you will increase your aerobic capacity. Because you are working at a higher intensity (as opposed to a lower intensity for a longer amount of time), your body will have more energy after your workout to burn fat. Don’t forget, you have to keep all parts of your body in line if you want to burn fat, so keep your diet in balance and you should be on your way to a slimmer you!
