Q. What is the best way to lose fat?

  1. Everyone will respond differently to a training program. However, there are some principles us fitness professionals try to apply.
  2. weight bearing exercise (e.g. lunges, step ups, push & pull ups, plank etc & of course resistance training) use more calories per minute for fat loss than non-weight-bearing activities that do not use many muscles
  3. The total number of fat calories expended is greater for higher-intensity workouts
  4. Endurance-trained individuals rely less on carbohydrates and more on fat as a fuel source during sub-maximal exercise (Kiens 1997). Thus, the more Kardio (aerobically) trained you become, the more fat you will use during subsequent exercise sessions

Q. How do I get rid of flabby arms & see a trimmer tummy?

Simplest answer is:
  1. One of the biggest exercise myths is that you can lose fat in an area of the body by strength training or exercising that specific body part. The truth is that “spot reducing” and “spot toning” do not work, because we cannot dictate from where our bodies will decide to oxidize fat, nor can we change fat into muscle

  3. Diet plays a vital role in the rate at which your body can recover – protein is crucial for decreasing muscle damage and soreness after a workout, fuel up properly
  4. Rest and plenty of sleep will also give the body time to repair
  5. Treat yourself to a bath with Epsom salts, which are packed with magnesium that will gently relax muscles.
  6. 6Or try foam rolling, which acts as a self-massage and prevents damage to the connective tissue between the muscles.
