Fat Burning, Weight Loss, Diet and Fitness Question of the Week

Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and  or the Fat X program. Today's question was  regarding abs, toning the abs and crunches. 

I really want to tone my abs. Should I be doing more crunches and ab work than what's in the Fat X program? 

 Getting the "toned" look requires you to have a low body fat percentage so you can see the muscle. The best way to lower your body fat percentage is to use good exercises and a good exercise program like Fat X and a good diet like the Fat X Diet.

Don't waste your time with too many ab exercises. Ab exercises burn very few calories because the abs are actually a relatively small muscle group. 

 Also, the muscle you build there will have a minimal impact on your metabolism because it's such a small muscle group. So to answer your question, no you should not need more ab exercises or crunches to get the "toned" look or "toned" abs. 

 You should be using exercises that burn a lot of calories. You should also be using exercises that build lean body tissue (muscle) optimally so that you speed up your metabolism. Luckily, all this is included in the Fat X program.

When your body fat lowers, you'll be better able to see the tension in your abdominal muscles.  

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.  I want to help you succeed, because when you succeed, I succeed as a fitness coach.
