4. Lose belly fat
This part might be one of the most difficult to lose fat in. Just doing crunches is not enough. There are 3 body types and each of them needs a different program to slim down:
- Ectomorphs are lean and long and have difficulty building muscle. 3 days of strength training should be intertwined with 2 days of low-intensity cardio: like jogging or step-aerobics. Include ab exercises like the bicycle crunch and ab crunches on an exercise ball.
- Endomorphs have high body fat and are often pear-shaped. Weight training is the best for you, but do lots of reps at relatively low weights. Add different types of crunches with a lot of repetitions. Walking, jogging, and swimming are also good for ectomorphs.
- Mesomorphs are well-built, with a high metabolism. Pick a super-set: pair crunches with leg raises, for example. Cardio like running may help mesomorphs who are looking to lean out. Add 30 to 45 minutes of cardio 3 to 5 times a week.
