The Spot Reduction Myth: A MUST READ

Image

There is a common misconception in fitness that exercising a muscle or a group of muscles more frequently, for example the abdominal wall, will help reduce the amount of fat that is stored around that muscle or group of muscles.

This is simply NOT TRUE, and is a misunderstanding of human physiology.

For more information as to why performing tireless abdominal work DOESN’T produce an astounding six-pack, read the quick article below:

Remember,

“Core work should be done with the focus on increasing midline stabilization, not obtaining a 6-pack. If fat loss is your goal, focus on your nutrition instead of new sit-up variations. Try cutting out refined carbohydrates like bread, pasta, cereal, rice, grains, and sugar in favor of fresh fruits and vegetables.”
