LiftRite Episode #7
Learn how to stay motivated by seeing results in the way of muscle size and strength. This will help you focus on reaching your fitness goals and aspirations. We all know the first thing a person should do after meeting a goal is to make another one.
|WHAT'S YOUR GOAL?|
In order to make your body burn off its fat stores you need to create a calorie deficit through your food choices and exercise, which eventually will reduce the fat from your midsection and the rest of your body.
In order to burn off one pound of fat a week you need to create a weekly calorie deficit of 3500kcals or 500kcals a day.
This for most people means just cutting out the junk food. If this does not work increase your daily activities (exercise classes, jogging, sports, gardening, etc...) and slowly decrease your meal sizes until you start losing a pound per week and no more!
When we think of abs we mostly think of the washboard midsection of the lean and muscular bodybuilders on stage. However, the abdominals include the Rectus abdominis and the External abdominal oblique muscles. Also included in this list are the Internal abdominal oblique and the Serratus anterior. The latter muscles are not visible and are not included in this article.
The function of the Rectus abdominis and the External abdominal oblique muscles is to flex the trunk or bend forward. The External abdominal oblique muscles also function in side-bending and rotation. These muscles also aid in trunk stability while performing upper and lower body activities and are vital in preventing lumbar spine injuries and maintaining posture.
