How Many Sit Ups Should One Do A Day To Get Rid Of Belly Fat?


How many sit ups should one do a day to get rid of belly fat?  You may be surprised to learn that sits ups to lose belly fat do not really help one to get rid of fat. Many people believe that doing regular sits ups to lose belly fat is an effective way of eliminating excess fat from this area of the body. However, here are some reasons as to why following a regular tummy fat sit ups schedule might now work. To begin with, a stomach fat sit ups routine will not help you to decrease the fat that has accumulated around your belly because sit ups do not stress the abdominal muscles. Sit ups to lose belly fat do not also work as sit ups target the hip flexors. Also remember that the body burns fat from all over. Doing stomach exercises will not help to burn stomach fat. The best way to lose belly fat is by losing overall fat as well. It is important to engage in prolonged aerobic activity if you wish to lose fat from around the stomach. Exercises to lose belly fat include shoulder thrusts, chin ups, triceps dips, squats, yoga poses and so on.
