Struggling with Stubborn tummy Fat and just want it gone?!
I feel for you! I remember trying to crunch my way to a flat stomach… Does anyone else do that?
I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t seeing the results, I wanted.
I did my cardio, my crunches and ate my chicken but I still had this stubborn stomach fat!!! This was everything I knew about health and fitness. Eat your protein, do your cardio and do crunches daily.
After doing my research and trying it for myself, I switched some stuff up and finally saw the results I wanted…
The Switch up…
Instead of killing myself on hours of boring cardio, I switched to interval cardio. So short burst of intense cardio for example, sprint for 1 minute, walk for 1 minute and repeat for 20 minutes.
This help get my heart rate up and burn the stubborn tummy fat. It’s easier to stick to since it is more action packed and shorter amount of time. I believe people hate cardio because they do long sessions and it gets boring.
When it’s boring, majority of the time people just skip it. So switch it up and make it exciting. Quick, short 20 minute cardio workout. No excuse to not get it done.
The next thing I did is going to shock you…
I STOPPED WORKING MY ABS!
Yeah, you read that right. I stopped working my abs and started doing full body workouts.
And you may be wondering… how does that make any sense?
We all believe if we want to improve a certain area, we must focus on it. Well… not true. Working full body throws your body in fat burning mode faster than isolated movements.
So one of my favorites is squat to press. Working your entire body and engaging that core.
After doing some full body workouts, you can add in isolated exercises for abs if you’d like but for best results, you want to do BOTH! I love to superset a full body exercise with an isolated exercise.
And last but NOT LEAST…
Let’s talk about food.
So many different myths on protein and I hear them all from…
“if I eat too much protein, I will get bulky” to “I need to live on chicken breast in order to get ripped”
Both are bullshit.
You need a well balanced diet in order to lean out and see the results you want.
Lean protein, carbs and healthy fats with spices and herbs for an extra metabolism boost.
A perfectly balanced recipe would be…
overnight oats recipe:
- 1 scoop protein powder (protein)
- 1 scoop detox organics (superfoods powder, use TC for discount here)
- 1/3c oats (carb/fiber)
- 1tbs chia seeds (fiber)
- 1/2c blueberries (fiber)
- 1tbs nut butter (fat)
- 1/2c almond milk (fat)
- dash of cinnamon
Mix together and place in fridge
