How to Lose ALL Your Stubborn Belly Fat
So you got some stubborn belly fat also known as a gut, a beer belly, a spare tire, a breadbasket, and depending on how much belly fat you’re carrying you may have a full-out tank. The good news is regardless what category you fall into if you have stubborn belly fat this video is going to help you solve this problem step by step once and for all.
There are three ways that we could affect stubborn belly fat and that’s through weight training cardiovascular training and nutrition. That’s it there’s no way to Target fat burn there are no special exercises to burn belly fat. Let’s start first with weight training. Weight training is extremely important to believe It or Not To Burn stubborn fat. You see everyone’s body has a basal metabolic rate. and contrary to popular belief you can drink all the water you want, eat six seven meals a day, and drink coffee, and eat spicy food, however, the only thing that is actually linked to a significant increase in your metabolism is an increase in lean body mass. Meaning if we can build more muscle we can eat more food and still burn more fat. A lot of people just get stuck in always trying to cut down. You cut back on calories and then when you plateau you cut back further add some more cardio. Let me tell you something from experience when we get clients that have very little muscle mass it becomes exponentially more difficult to make them lose weight. As everyone else is losing 3, 4 pounds a week they’re losing one every other week. This is a hugely Overlook Factor, especially by women. Remember even though your ultimate goal is to burn fat your goal with weight training has to be to build muscle because that’s ultimately going to be the thing that helps you burn fat the most.
Now, what’s the best way to build muscle with weight training? If your natural like most of the people that watch this channel then you absolutely must strive to lift heavier and heavier weights. Unless your somebody that enjoys doing hundreds of reps of call aesthetics upping the weights is the best way to ensure that you progressively overload your muscles. Training heavy also helps increase a natural lifters ability to synthesize protein which is again super important for building muscle and building up your metabolism. Now there’s been a lot of people that have made the claim that working your sets until the failure is a bad idea and doesn’t pay off. This is wrong. yes maximal muscle fib, er recruitment is necessary to stimulate protein synthesis. And yes you can achieve maximal muscle fiber recruitment with a heavy load and with a light load.
However the problem is that most people that use light weights stop before ever achieving maximal muscle fiber recruitment. That’s why training to failure especially when you’re not in a lab being studied is a far better idea for building muscle. When you fail you can be almost certain that you achieved maximal muscle fiber recruitment and in turn you’ll have an increase in muscle protein synthesis. The bottom line is to make sure that you’re going heavy with your weights at least 3 days a week and if you want more information on sets and Reps I’ll include a link at the end, for a video I made earlier that dives deep into structuring and setting up your weight training program. Let’s talk about element number two which is cardio. You don’t want to do just any regular kind of cardio. Especially when a lot of people that have stubborn belly fat need to be working on building muscle. Doing a lot of long duration cardio like jogging for miles is not gonna help you build muscle and it’s truly not the most effective way to burn fat. The best type of cardio that you can do for fat loss is interval training. There are tons of different forms of interval training but I’m just going to give you one very simple approach for your cardio workouts. You sprint for 60 seconds and then you walk for 60 seconds. If you’re a little more advanced you can Sprint for 60 seconds and then jog for 60 seconds.
The cool thing is as opposed to long duration cardio you’re going to be done with this work out in just 20 minutes. Now keep in mind to do this correctly and to experience the fat burning effects when you sprint you have to Sprint. Whenever you’re doing interval training, when you’re doing the “work” interval you almost always want a maximum effort. By doing this type of interval training this is going to invoke the afterburn effect
