Your midsection can take on a lot of unwanted fat. Some people are genetically predisposed to store fat in their belly, while others choose diets that send fat right to the center of it all. Getting rid of belly fat can feel hopeless, so we created this Core Exercises To Blast Fat From All Sides workout.
In order to blast ab fat, you have to reframe how you work your abs. Like all muscle groups, resistance is key. Where most ab workouts fail is not including weight resistance. Weight resistance will force your muscles to work harder and grow stronger in order to boost your body’s ability to burn fat.
