Love Your Figure Again: Stomach Pt.2♥

So your doing crunches and your watching what you eat but you still can't seem to get rid of the fat pouch that you call your stomach!
Belly fat is the hardest thing to get rid of......BUT it is possible.
The key is CARDIO, CARDIO, CARDIO; Not crunches and abs exercises.
I say this only because Cardio exercises (jogging, bicycling, stair stepping, dancing, etc.) burns fat while ab exercises strengthens your abdominal muscles....so even if you do 100 crunches a day, you won't see your six pack if it's hidden under the fat! You have to combine A HEALTHY DIET, WITH REGULAR CARDIO, AND A COUPLE SETS OF AB EXERCISES PER WEEK.
The best and most effective way to get a flatter stomach is to exercise at the proper intensity. Your workouts should be challenging. You should feel your heart pumping faster and you should build up a sweat. Try to maintain a good intensity for at least 20 minutes to kick in to your fat burning zone!
Nikki Tip: After cardio do 3 sets of 20 crunches and 3 sets of 15 squats to maintain a sexy figure.
PEACE :) NIKKI
