Excess Abdominal Fat - a Serious Danger

Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible, and makes them self conscious about showing off their body.

However, what most people don't realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly determined that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.

Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both of them greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.
Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that it apparently releases more inflammatory molecules into your system on a consistent basis.

If you care about the quality of your life and your loved ones, reducing your abdominal fat should be one of your TOP priorities! There's just no way around it. Besides, a side effect of finally getting rid of all of that excessive ugly abdominal fat is that your stomach will flatten out, and if you lose enough stomach fat, you will be able to visibly see those sexy six pack abs that everyone wants.

So what gets rid of extra abdominal fat? Is there actually a REAL solution beyond all of the gimmicks and hype that you see in ads and on commercials for "miracle" fat loss products?
The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution. There are no pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. Also, none of the gimmicky ab rockers, rollers, or ab belts will help get rid of abdominal fat either. You can't spot reduce your stomach fat by using any of these worthless contraptions. It simply doesn't work that way.

The ONLY solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your food intake as well as your training program are important if you are to get this right.

I've actually even seen a particular study that divided thousands of participants into a diet-only group and an exercise & diet combined group. While both groups in this study made good progress, the diet-only group lost significantly LESS abdominal fat than the diet & exercise combined group.

Now the important thing to realize is that just any old exercise program will not necessarily do the trick. The majority of people that attempt getting into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat. I see this every day at the gym.

Most people will do your typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part style weight training, and pump away with some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their abdominal fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.
Well, the good news is that I've spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it "in the trenches" with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to see what works to really stimulate abdominal fat loss. I want to help you succeed in finally getting rid of that extra abdominal fat that is not only UGLY, but also DANGEROUS.
Don't waste another day allowing that nasty abdominal fat to kill your confidence as well as contribute to your risk for MAJOR diseases.

The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.

What are the best abdominal exercises to lose that spare tire?

The answer to the age-old question of "What are the best abdominal exercises to lose that spare tire?" is...

Abdominal exercises alone won't create enough metabolic response in your body to ensure fat loss.
As a fitness professional, trainer, and diet specialist, I'm often asked what the best exercises and workouts are for losing annoying stomach fat in order to bring out wicked six pack abs. The problem most people face with excess stomach fat is that they are looking to try to reveal their abs by searching for some "miracle ab exercise" that is going to melt the fat off their abdominals instantly.

The problem is... they are going about this the entirely wrong way!

The truth is that you don't lose abdominal fat by doing abdominal exercise.

Focusing all of your effort on ab exercises and abdominal workouts to try to flatten your stomach and bring out 6-pack abs is simply robbing you of your time from doing the correct workout programs that will acutally lower your body fat for life.

These types of whole body workouts encompass a much higher percentage of the workouts I would do instead of abdominal-only exercises directly targeting the core. How you mix these whole body exercises into a purposeful workout that maximizes your metabolism is vitally important.

Don't take that the wrong way now. I encourage a certain amount of exercises that directly target the abdominals and the core, but these are only a small portion of the programs I create for my clients as your time is far better invested focusing on the full body exercises that stimulate the biggest hormonal and metabolic changes inside your body. Whats more, a side-benefit of working out using mostly whole body multi-joint combo workouts are that you indirectly work out your whole midsection even while you are not specifically isolating your abdominals.

Bear in mind that the most important factor of shedding that spare tire to see your abs is actually in the nutrition arena. It flat out does not matter how hard you work out if your diet is full of junk. If your diet is full of junk then your abs will be covered with an ugly spare tire.

Diet and Nutrition is without a doubt the "king of getting a six pack".

So let's make this super clear...

Stop wasting all of your effort limiting yourself to situps, crunches, leg raises, and all those silly worthless "abdominal machines" in trying to develop 6-pack abs. Focus instead on high intensity whole body lifts using combination multi-joint exercises all purposefully combined into highly effective fat loss workouts. Pair that with a nutritional diet full of natural unprocessed whole foods that are as close to their natural state as possible, and those elusive six-pack abdominals will yours in no time flat!

Check out below for more of my key strategies for getting flat sexy 6-pack abs for life.
