According to Men’s Health magazine, it takes more than 22,000 crunches to burn just a single pound of belly fat.
Yes, that’s ONE pound of fat.
So a quick news flash for you in case you didn’t already know — you’ll never get a flat stomach or six pack abs while crunching away on the ground or using some ab gadget.
They won’t do diddlysquat to eliminate belly fat.
In fact, research now proves crunching can do more harm than good due to the stress and compression of the spine.
Here’s an example of what you should stop doing and what you should do instead:
* STOP doing crunches and use reverse crunches, plank variations, mountain climbers and stability ball movements like jackknives.
* STOP using twisting oblique movements and use cross-body mountain climbers, renegade rows, hanging side to side leg raises (advanced), and side plank variations.
* STOP using traditional sit-ups and use hanging leg raises, hip ups, and stability ball movements like roll-outs, planking, or pikes.
I recommend you get laser focused on your nutrition and make the switch to short, bursting workouts, that can be done at home or in a gym with minimal equipment — AND all in about 12 minutes.
It requires very little time; you’ll triple or quadruple your fat burning results and you’ll benefit from the “afterburn” effect to boost your metabolism for up to 40 hours after your workouts.
Enjoy the new stimuli and results,
