My Secret Spot Reductions

April 2, 2010 by moi 

It’s well known that targeting areas of the body for fat removeal is a myth, right? Well, that’s what we used to think until this study came out of Australia. It’s not just luck when you lose 20 pounds.

It turns out that training using intervals will target your abdominal flab directly. You can directly impact your waistline by working out with intervals rather than using your training sessions for crunches and other useless exercises.

Interval training coincidentally offers the additional benefits of giving you time back to your life because you don’t have to spend as much time working out with intervals as you did doing traditional cardio. The research I’m telling you about took some people doing twenty minutes of intervals three times a week and others who did forty minutes of traditional aerobic exercises three times a week.

These groups worked for almost four months.

When it was all over, the group that did intervals was the one that showed some fat loss, especially around the stomach area. The research made us get back to the topic of spot training or the theory that you can work fat off one section of your body at a time. You can share your opinion in the weight loss forum.

Of course, this isn’t really what anyone was talking about when they were speaking of spot reductions. The abdominals are just the unlikely benificiery of the fact that interval weight loss is the most effective way to improve body composition.

Now when we say that targeted fat burning provides no benefit we mean that movements like crunches aren’t going to get the job done.

Conventional theory would have made you think that a professional tennis player is going to have less fat in one arm than the other since they use one more. The study concluded that there was not fat benefit to the arm that worked more. You’re not going to burn fat from one area just through targeting that spot with more exercise.

By the way, intervals work the same way for men as they do for women. Use intervals for rapid weight loss.
