7/17/12-Paula's Eating/Excercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 18. July 2012 21:39

Welcome back.   I would love feedback from you about what topics are of interest that we can explore.  A body part a lot of people are frustrated with is abs.  It can be a really difficult place to see results from because it is often covered with fat.  The old theory to carve out a 6 pack was 50-100-200 crunches.  But today,  we have a better understanding of the importance of working all the different sets of muscles that line the abdomen and even those wrapping around the back.  Diversity in exercises ( plank, pilates boat, hip raises while in the prone position just to name a few) will help strengthen all of those muscles.  An equally important point though is that no amount of crunches and pilates classes will show results with out clean/healthy eating.  If strong muscles are covered in fat, you still won't see the results you want.  You can get ideas for different ab exercises from workout magazines, or go on-line for ideas.
