Hey Chicks! Today’s FIT CHICKS Friday workout is an upper body HIIT workout that will leave your arms feeling like jello! This can be done as a stand alone workout, paired with cardio, or at the end of your weight training workout to really burn out that upper body!
You will do as many reps as you can with good form of each exercise, for a total of one minute, then repeat. Depending on your level, you will select weights to ensure you get to a 9/10 on the rate of perceived exertion scale. Enjoy.
The most effective exercise to burn stomach fat is crunches. Crunches rank top when we talk of fat-burning exercises. You can start by lying down flat with your knees bent and your feet on the ground. Lift your hands and then place them behind the head. Foods and ingredients that help burn belly fat include red fruits, oatmeal, plant protein, lean meat, leafy greens, fatty fish, apple cider vinegar, resveratrol, choline and others. Research indicates that people who followed a low-carb diet had a smaller waist circumference in five years than those who didn’t.
In fact, if you’re working out, your body is changing. Your heart is learning to work more efficiently, your circulation is getting better, and deep inside your cells, you’re actually growing more mitochondria.1
All of these changes are necessary for weight loss to happen, but it’s hard to get excited about changes that we can’t see and feel. So, if the changes are happening and you can’t measure them, and the scale isn’t moving how do you know if you’re making progress? Just visit Scaleszen and get a digital scale now.
