What are the best abdominal workouts for losing stomach fat? The answer may surprise you. Click here to see exactly what ab workout produces rapid fat loss!
As a personal fitness trainer, nutritional expert, and fitness professional, I see questions all the time from people who want to know what the best types of exercises and abdominal workouts are BEST for losing stubborn belly fat.
The major issue is that most people with excess belly fat are looking for ways to uncover their abs end up searching for “miracle abdominal workouts” that are going to slash the fat off their abs in no time.
The thing is… they’re going about the problem in an entire wrong way!
The truth is… you absolutely can’t lose stubborn belly fat by doing abdominal workouts.
The problem is by focusing most of your time and effort on abdominal exercises and abdominal workouts to try to flatten your belly, you’re going to be wasting your time from doing the correct workout programs that will actually reduce your overall body fat.
If I were to choose an answer as to what the best exercises and abdominal workouts are for losing stubborn belly fat, my answer would be full body exercises such as the following:
- Clean & Presses
- Presses and Pulls
- Mountain Climbers
- Battle Ropes etc.
These types of full body exercises (such as this 4 minute Tabata workout) would be far more effective than directly targeting the midsection.
The way you combine those full body exercises and workouts into a strategic program that maximizes your metabolism is also very critical.
Don’t get me wrong… I do recommend a certain amount of exercises that directly target the abdominals and midsection, but these are only a small portion of the programs I design.
I just feel it’s better spent to focus on full body workouts that stimulate the greatest hormonal and metabolic changes within the body.
Also, a side benefit of full body exercises are that you indirectly work your entire midsection even though you are not specifically targeting the abdominals.
Keep in mind that the most important factor for losing belly is actually going to be your diet.
No matter how hard you workout, if your diet sucks, then your abdominals will be covered with a layer of ugly fat.
Nutrition by far is the “king of getting a six pack.”
Work time: 20 sec (as many reps as possible with good form)
Rest time: 10 sec
1. Jumping Squats x 20 sec (10 sec break)
2. Reverse Lunge with Knee Up x 20 sec (10 sec break)
3. Renegade Rows Up x 20 sec (10 sec break)
4. Plank x 20 sec (10 sec break)
2 Rounds for a total of 8 sets.
Remember: ONLY REST FOR 10 SECONDS between sets!
So let’s clear this up…
Stop wasting so much of your valuable time focusing on crunches, sit-ups, leg raises, and all those other worthless “abdominal contraptions” in your efforts to try and develop 6 pack abs.
Instead focus on high intensity full body workouts using a combination of multi-joint exercises all strategically combined into highly effective belly fat loss workout.
Combine that with a healthy nutritional plan full of natural unprocessed whole foods as close to their natural state as possible and those elusive six-pack abs will be yours in no time!
