Can core exercises help lose stomach fat?

A question that we often get asked at MHR Fitness is, "Can core exercises help me lose stomach fat?"



Well, you may be surprised to learn that exercises that directly target the abdominals are not as effective as you may think. Whilst exercising your abdominals will strengthen them, no amount of twisting, crunching or side bending is going to burn off the layer of belly fat which covers these muscles. 

Instead, to lose stomach fat we need to focus on whole body exercises - these are exercises that we do  regularly in Personal Training and Small Group PT sessions. These moves help speed up the metabolism of the body, burn calories and burn fat. Moderate to high intensity aerobic training will also help reduce the amount of fat retained by the body. 

Exercise is only part of the answer to burning fat, and as the saying goes, "Abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym." Good nutrition is vital to losing body fat. The MHR Recipe Book is full of ideas that are high in protein and low in sugar: both of which are key to uncovering the abdominals.
