The back alongside the front of your stomach is one of the most stubborn areas to lose weight from. However, there are a few things that help people to get rid of stubborn back fat and love handles. Although there are no specific back fat exercises, there are some exercises that help to get rid of fat and lose back fat. This article will look at how to lose back fat safely.
The key to getting rid of love handles is a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. Although it may not seem like it at the time, every workout is beneficial to ridding the body of fat. Since the back area, especially around the lower back stores fat much easier than other parts of the body, the only sure way of ridding it is by dropping the overall body fat mass. Back exercises are beneficial as they tone the muscles on the back and strengthen the area as a whole, but do nothing to get rid of the fat that sits on top of them.
How to lose it
The first step in lowering the overall body fat is to add lean muscle to the body. Muscles require more energy to maintain than fat and so, the more lean muscle added to the body, the faster the metabolism will run. This in turn, makes it easier to drop body fat. By adding muscle, the body constantly burns calories even while sitting around or resting. To speed up the metabolism and to get muscles, add strength training to workouts, focusing particularly on the large muscle groups like the legs, buttocks and core. This will ensure that the best results will be achieved for the effort. Along with exercise, a well-structured diet plan need to be implemented. Low calorie or starvation diets actually do more harm than good when it comes to losing fat. If the body is deprived of calories and supplements, it reverts into starvation mode and slows down the metabolic rate to compensate. This means that eating too little not only makes it harder to lose weight, but it also makes it easier to put weight back on when the diet is over. Rather than concentrating on a low-calorie diet, it is best to eat a healthy balanced diet. Homehealth-uk.com offers a guide on what a healthy diet consists of. For the overall body fat loss, exercises such as running, cycling, rowing machines, cross trainers etc. for 30 minutes a day help to increase the body's metabolic rate. Friendly caution It is advised that a GP is consulted before making any large lifestyle changes in diet and exercise.
