Weight loss is a topic with many different viewpoints. The question of losing weight doesn’t have a straightforward answer. Weight loss is personal to every person, and every person has different methods and techniques that work for them.
Some people try to tone up and lean down, while other people want to lose weight all around. Other people want to lose weight on specific parts of their body, rather than lose weight on their entire body.
One place that a lot of people tend to be insecure about is their stomachs. If you’re trying to lose weight around your stomach, your workouts should always consist of cardio and strength training.
Cardio helps to lower your body-fat percentage. The most common form of cardio is running, but if that doesn’t sound like an excellent workout to you, there’s a lot of other options. You can try jumping rope, doing HIIT workouts, cycling, or swimming. Cardio can burn both fat and muscle, so you can leave the hour-long cardio sessions out of the picture and opt for a cardio workout that’s 30 minutes or under.
Strength training can help in losing stomach fat because it can increase your bone mass and lean mass. Strength training also improves your cardiovascular fitness and strength. You can try incorporating compound exercises into your workouts to maximize the impact. Compound exercises work multiple muscle groups at the same time, for example, squats, pull-ups, and push-ups.
To incorporate both cardio and strength training into a workout, you can do a cardio and strength HIIT workout, go for a 30-minute run and then doing a series of compound exercises, or really whatever you are most comfortable with. As long as you do both cardio and strength training in your workout, you’ll start to feel that stomach tighten and see those abs form in no time.
