Crunches a Waste of Time?
Having fat around the midsection is a very common problem for many overweight individuals. When you've made that decision to drop the extra pounds, you may immediately focus just on your belly fat. How can you get rid of it? While it's definitly good to realize that extra weight around the stomach is a bad sign and should be removed, it's also important to understand there is no such thing as spot reduction. Getting rid of the fat around your midsection can't be done with hundreds of crunches every day. Simply focusing just on your stomach fat is actually a waste of time. When our bodies need the extra energy while exercising, that energy will be grabbed from wherever extra fat is stored. Yes, that includes your belly fat, but also every other area fat is stored as well. Doing Interval training is one of the best ways to target that stored fat. By "shocking" your body with cardio you burn calories even after your workout is complete!
