Fitness week 2: Stomach and back
EXERCISE OF THE WEEK – Stomach and Back
How many times have I heard; I’ve been doing 200 sit ups a day but I’m not losing any weight from my stomach and my back is sore, why?
It’s quite simple – you will not lose weight by only doing stomach crunches, all you are doing is hardening the stomach under the fat and if you have not been working your back you may get a muscle imbalance which can lead to bad posture and a sore back. You need to start doing aerobic exercise, cut out any processed food and look to fresh healthy options as this will help strip the fat from your body.
If you have a few unhealthy snacks a day, cut them out and this alone will be an improvement on how many calories you are consuming eg if you have 4 slices of bread a day cut it to 2, that’s 60 slices less in one month. Try to look at small changes that in time make a big difference.
Working your stomach and back will improve your posture and core strength. It will make your whole body feel more stable, improve your balance and make you feel more upright.
This will make you look taller and thinner, giving you that extra air of confidence as you walk. Working on your back and stomach will also give strength to your arms and legs and allow your whole body to work more effectively.
