All good fitness professionals, myself included, will tell you that you need to work your entire body during your workouts in order to get an overall body fat burning effect, and indeed to burn fat off your stomach. But what if there was something you could do that would ensure you literally burned stomach fat during every exercise you did!…
This is actually a very simple technique to apply to all your exercises. You may have heard of it before, but in my experience very few people actually get it right.
You need to ‘BRACE’ your stomach during every exercise you do. This will mean you get continual core and stomach activation, and are constantly burning stomach fat even when working you body’s other muscles.
In Pilates they talk a lot about ‘pulling in’ and ‘zipping up.’ I find these terms somewhat misleading, so I will explain my unique way of explaining the ‘brace position.’
Imagine that you were standing up, and someone went to push you in the stomach. What would you do? You would engage you stomach muscles ready for the impact. I am not talking about someone punching you hard, jus a push.
This embrace of your stomach is what the ‘brace’ is. It’s improtant you don’t over-strain and brace too much, but similarly you must hold enough tension get the muscles engaged.
Today’s Takeaway - It won’t come straight away, and you will have to practice and remind yourself to do it. But get this right, and you will seriously increase the amount of stomach fat you burn during your workouts.
