Abs Exercise Tips:

It’s probably the most common question I get as a personal trainer. “How do I reduce my belly fat?” The answer is easy – reduce your overall body fat and the belly fat will go away. This isn’t always the answer people want to hear, but it’s the truth. There is no exercise or set of exercises that will magically make your belly fat evaporate; no gizmo, gadget, or magic wand you see on late night TV will miraculously give you a slim flat tummy.
So, what can you do? Here are five steps you can follow to get rid of that belly fat and get the flat toned abs you’ve been longing for.

1. Reduce your consumption of carbohydrates and sweets. Carbs and sweets are one of the fastest ways to increase your body’s fat reserves, which is the exact opposite of what you’re trying to do. That little bit of fat on your tummy (and the love handles on either side) are your body’s reserve fuel tank. The object here is to have your body eliminate your reserves, and that means eliminating the fuel it uses to fill the fat cells on your belly: sweets and carbs.

2. Portion control is critical in any fat reducing endeavor. The only way to eliminate belly fat is to burn more calories than you consume: it’s just that simple! By eating smaller and more frequent meals you can not only reduce your caloric intake, but also boost your metabolism. Higher metabolism gives you more energy, and causes your resting caloric burn rate to increase. You’ll burn more calories just sitting still!

3. Building core skeletal muscles further increases your metabolism. It takes a lot of energy to keep lean muscle mass maintained, and takes nothing to maintain body fat. You’ll end up with more energy, which makes it easier to burn fat, and by strengthening your core you’ll have a nice six pack waiting for you when you burn off the last of that annoying belly fat.

4. Cardio! People often loathe cardio workouts, but they are the core of any fat loss regimen. Don’t fret, you don’t have to chain yourself to the stairmaster or spend hours running miles and miles through your neighborhood. Cardiovascular workouts can be enjoyable. Find a sport or activity that you enjoy and practice it regularly.

5. Keep the end in mind. These five simple rules are easier said than done. It does take a significant amount of will power to stay away from starches and sweets, get up off couch, and get active on a regular basis. Write down your goal, and be specific. If your goal is to fit back into your 32″ pants, or to get your body fat down to 15% for swimsuit season, you need to be specific when you set it.

Get More Flexible
Why is it important to be flexible? Many people think of flexibility as something that results from a sport or exercise routine, such as yoga, pilates, ballet, gymnastics, etc. But flexibility is an important part of everyday life.

Flexibility improves strength and overall good health. When you get more flexible, you'll find that you have a greater range of motion, that you are able to perform tasks with greater ease, and you'll suffer fewer injuries.

Best of all, flexibility can add a great deal to your success in sports. If you are an avid golfer, swimmer, love to play basketball, baseball, or volleyball, you'll be amazed at how your performance changes when you focus your efforts to get more flexible.

You can improve your flexibility by adding a static and dynamic flexibility exercises to your daily routine. Static flexibility exercises are slow, constant stretching of muscles, held for at least 30 seconds. Some examples of static flexibility exercises include calf stretches and ham string stretches. Static stretches can also incorporate isometric and PNF stretching techniques to considerably increase their effectiveness.

Dynamic flexibility exercises use muscle movement to increase your range of motion. Typically these exercises - examples include leg and arm swings, side bends, toe touches - are initially performed at low to moderate speeds, with a controlled motion. Gradually, over time you will be able to increase your range of movement, extend further, and increase speed.

Both static and dynamic flexibility exercises work at lengthening the connective tissues that surround your muscles. This lengthening of the tissues provides an increase in your ability to extend your arms or legs in a natural movement. This movement is termed your range of motion. As you improve your flexibility, you'll find that it becomes easier to move your joints - knees, shoulders, elbows, etc. You'll also be able to move these joints to a greater length or extend them further.

When you make an effort to get more flexible, you'll notice improvements in your everyday life and in your sports. You'll be able to swim faster, throw balls further, have a greater controlled and stronger golf swing. Increased flexibility will pay off even if you aren't active in sports. As you work to get more flexible, you'll notice common household tasks, such as vacuuming, yard work, and lifting, all become easier to do. You'll notice that your overall strength and endurance has increased.

As you work to get more flexible, you'll suffer fewer injuries, your posture will improve and your muscles won't be as sore when you exert yourself or exercise. Flexibility pays off big - it's not just for gymnasts.

Exercise Safety
It is always important to have safety as your number one priority. Learn some simple safety rules to keep in mind while exercising.

Stop exercising right away if you:
* Have pain or pressure in the left-chest or mid-chest area or left neck, shoulder, or arm.
* Feel dizzy or sick. * Break out in a cold sweat.
* Have muscle cramps.
* Feel pain in your joints, feet, ankles, or legs. You could hurt yourself if you ignore the pain.

(Ask your health care provider what to do if you have any of these symptoms.)
• Slow down if out of breath. You should be able to talk while exercising without gasping for breath.
• Drink lots of water before, during, and after exercise (even water workouts) to replace the water you lose by sweating.
• Do not do hard exercise for 2 hours after a big meal (but a 5- to 10-minute walk is OK). If you eat small meals, you can exercise more often.
Wear the right clothes:
* Wear lightweight, loose-fitting tops so you can move easily.
* Women should wear a good support bra.
* Wear supportive athletic shoes for weight-bearing activities.
* Wear clothes made of fabrics that absorb sweat and remove it from your skin.
* Never wear rubber or plastic suits. These could hold the sweat on your skin and make your body overheat.
* Wear a knit hat to keep you warm when you exercise outdoors in cold weather. Wear a baseball cap in hot weather to help keep you cool.
* Wear sunscreen when you exercise outdoors. Cover all areas of exposed skin whenever outdoors.
