COMMITTED | NYC 1.19.18
Ok so we’re 3 weeks into 2018. Who’s still locked in on their New Years resolutions? My gym was looking a little light the last few days... Great session with @tribeca_steve & @clewis1and1
Oh and @steveyparis can we get @gymshark to start making XXXL clothes? @bigjonward has me on too much protein 🤷🏽♂️
Fitness Question of the Day- Can you target belly Fat
You’ve probably heard the phrase “abs are made in the kitchen.” Well, that’s partially true. Let me explain .. First, the bad news: No matter how much physical effort you put into sculpting a smokin’ six-pack — crunches, planks, squats, cardio, HIIT — no one’s going to see them if they’re covered by a layer of flab.
Now, the good news: You can actually eat your way to great abs.
So getting back to the question CAN Target Belly Fat… YES you can
BUT: It depends on the kind of belly fat you have. There are two types — subcutaneous fat and visceral fat.
Subcutaneous fat is a fancy name for your spare tire/muffin top. You can’t target or spot reduce this kind of fat. But if you reduce your overall body fat with a healthy, balanced diet and exercise, you’ll lose the tire muffin and reveal the glorious abs you’ve been working on.
Visceral fat is the name for the kind of fat that is deep within your torso, building up primarily around your stomach, intestines, and liver. It’s also called “deep belly fat,” which has been linked to various health issues. You can target this type of fat by eating more fiber, less carbs, and getting more exercise and sleep.
Bottom line: Developing six pack Abs requires an integrated approach involving both diet and exercise. Concentrating on exercise with scant regards to diet would eventually result in fluctuating weight and regain the lost body fat in a short time.
Again, crunches may help to develop Abs of steel, but body fat would still cover it. It would require cardiovascular activity and a strict diet regime to reduce the fat layer.
Happy Saturday y'all. Thank you
@stephaniedesj for demonstrating my modified Reverse crunches on bench..💪 Happy Training y'all
Ah! This autumn i won a giveaway from @fitarmyofficial and i received this cool top from them! Besides... I was not able to wear it because i didnt feel well in it. Not about the product, but because of my vision of my body. Today, i tried it again and since i lost a little bit of fat around my waist, i feel way better now! 😃❤
The top is amazing
Its soft, breathable and light.
But because i hurted my back last day (so no sport today), i'll wear it casual 😁
