Hi guys, im not sure if this is in the right place but ill give it a shot. Just registered today haha.
Growing up ive been a abit over weight and now over the past few years ive started to loose weight because im more active and stuff but one place i cant rid of fat is my obliques.
Theres alot of fat there and whatever i do i stuggle to loose it completely… Ive dieted for several month or so and only a portion has gone but i cant seem to get it all off.
I just want a straight midsection, do i have to do more oblique work to get rid of the fat or just go on a better diet to get rid of all that fat?[/quote]
Get yourself a good pair of calipers and learn how to use them. Or, get your BF% measured at your local gym.
Bottom line… if your BF% is significantly above 10%, no point in doing any significant ab exercises because you’ll never see them. It’s always a good idea to incorporate core work into any routine, but if you’re after seeing your abs, that work is done in the kitchen.
Important to note that the last 5-10 #'s are the HARDEST to come off. What worked for me to get down to ~ 8% at my lowest was to continuously trick the body - primarily through carb cycling and increasing cardio. If you’re looking to remove belly fat you’ll have to remove body fat, your genetics will determine where it comes from. Focus on a calorie deficit… bigger deficit = greater fat loss over time, using activity as the primary driver of the deficit.
