Got Bra Fat?

Everyone has their own issues in relation to fitness and fat loss. There are some solutions that will work in general for the main stream, but  there are those with their own issues that may want to dial in their program so that it’s totally personalized. If you’re one of these people, then I have the perfect solution for you.

If you live in my area, then you can take part in my Shawna 24/7 program and train with me every day.  And even if you live outside my area, you still can benefit from my support 24/7 for the upcoming transformation program starting September 13th.

Check it out and get in before the price increases later today (midnight Aug 27th).

Now…if bra fat or wiggly triceps are a problem…read on…

Thanks to Gini for the question regarding the nasty fat that hangs over the bra in the back. I promised some workout ideas to deal with this.

It depends on where you carry your fat. Some ladies tend to hold fat in their lower body, so you may not be as concerned about this issue. Then there are those that carry fat in their upper body, and you wouldn’t be as concerned with the last post on reducing inner thigh fat.

As I suggested in previous posts, you can’t ‘spot reduce’ or lose fat in specific areas, but you can certainly help to tighten and tone an area and once you dial in your diet, things will look a whole lot better for you.

Sooo…I wanted to give some upper body exercises that will address the back fat and the wobbly tricep area (or back of the arm). Let’s try to avoid looking like this:

Some of my favorite exercises for the upper body include the DB row and the dip. You’ll need to fit in some HIIT (high intensity intervals) into this circuit, to get your heart rate up and increase your metabolism. Remember that your training intensity is the most important factor.  You can’t do the same thing over and over and expect different results and you need to up your game each time you exercise, challenge your body and it will respond.

Here’s a great little circuit for you:

30 mountain climbers (great for shoulder strength/stability and tricep development)

20/arm DB rows (go as heavy as you can with good form)

20 dips (don’t go too deep, keep your butt in close to the bench)

30 jacks

5 stick ups for active recovery to catch your breath

Repeat set 3 times.

Let me know what you think.
