A common question I get is from women who wish to know what are some recommended abs exercises for women.
The way I recommend to burn the most belly fat is to do intensive interval cardio workouts and full body strength workouts to increase muscle mass which will in turn boost metabolism and natural fat burning.
However, this throws some women off, especially the part about strength training.
One of the things which concern women the most is how to tone up without bulking up. They want to maintain the feminine look, and frankly I can understand them, because a lot of guys don’t like muscular women.
However, weight training or bodyweight strength training doesn’t mean that you have to pack on muscle mass. Sure, you will gain muscle tissue. There’s nothing wrong with that even if you’re a woman. But if you workout correctly, eat to burn fat and not to gain too much muscle mass, the muscle you do develop will help you to look toned, firm, and sexy, and will not look bulky.
Abs muscles are the same regardless of gender
I wish there was some special abs exercise for women I could recommend to you but there isn’t. For women and men the guidelines are pretty much the same because the abs muscles are the same and the principles of getting flat abs are the same: burning off belly fat comes first, strengthening the abs comes later.
One of the main mistakes women make is to only do cardio workouts and avoid doing weight training exercises. Even if you add a small degree of muscle, and this can help you to look toned, you will increase your metabolism, the natural rate in which your body burns caloris.
That’s the way muscle tissue works. Muscles tissue requires more energy to sustain itself. That’s why the more muscle you have the easier it is for you to burn fat. Naturally, you don’t want to bulk up, but adding some lean muscle tissue will help you a lot.
Even celebrities and movie stars do weight training, you can count on it. Doing full body strength workouts will not only help you to burn stomach fat but it will tone your entire body as well. Remember, you burn fat from all over your body at the same time, never from a specific body part.
Remember the guidelines
To get a flat and sexy stomach you need to do 3 things:
1. Eat right to not store fat and to help you burn more of it.
2. Do intensive cardio workouts which will help to burn a lot of body fat fast.
3. Do full body strength workouts to add lean muscle tissue to help you burn extra calories even while you’re resting.
Do all of those, and it won’t matter that you’re a woman. You will lose body fat and see your abs shape up as you want them to.
