Stop Doing Sit Ups and Crunches

Yes, you read correctly.

Sit ups and crunches will do little to reveal your abdominal muscles. While most of us aren’t looking for a ‘six pack’, we are looking to get rid of the ‘muffin top’. Doing abdominal exercises alone will do little to help.

You want to raise your metabolic rate to burn fat. You want to increase your lean muscle tone as this will help to raise your metabolic rate. With an increased metabolic rate you’ll burn more fat even at rest. It’s simple math.

Many women are afraid when I mention muscle. Don’t worry, you’ll never look masculine. In fact, muscle is what gives your body shape. Too many women try to get shapely with diet alone and then end up looking like a smaller, saggier version of themselves. That’s not what they intend with all their dieting efforts.

Maximize solid nutrition with metabolically challenging workouts that will boost your calorie burn during your workout and even AFTER your workout. Do workouts that will add to your muscle tone so that you gain shape and again burn more calories.

Win win.
