Been going to the gym with Don for a few weeks now. USed to go all the time but stopped and gained a podgy gut. I wanna get rid of it. My upper body is starting to define out how i want it, but i can't rid of the plump gut n love handles I've just started on this funky situp machine where u can add weights, and i've tried running, cross trainer, rowing etc.

Is there any decent things i can do in the gym to start getting rid of the lard? Im not arsed about having a 6 pack, i just wanna be defined, with a nice triangular shape (quite broad sholders).

Cheers

Aerobic excercise.

Try swimming, cycling, etc rather than weights.

I was speaking to my gym instructor the other day, he said if you train your stomach only you wont actually get a flat stomach. It helps defenitely but the best way is simply to run it off as well as your burning and sweating it off.

Well thats waht he said anyway, if anyone else has got advice then it would be helpful cos i wouldnt mind knowing as well.

Well swimming would tone up all round, I'm not sure if you can target any specific areas in the pool whilst swimming.

Swimming brilliant.

i do roughtly 300+ reps for stomach takes nearly 20-30mins.

that ab toners good. i think you mentioned the stomach cruncher.

a good one is, Lie on your back with you head between someones feet. Then raise your legs up and leg them throw your feet back down. BUt when they throw them down , try and stop your legs hitting the ground. This tones the lower abs which are the hardest to get.

30 lengths, Don, u know i just sink after 2

300reps, im just working on 100. Its not a stomach cruncher, its an actual gym peice, like a weights bench. U lie on it, wrapping ur feet through the roller (round foam bits) at the end. U can add weights on this. Then u put ur hands over ur head and hold onto handles, and pull ur top half and bottom half together. The bench splits in the middle. Really gives u a good workout.

Its not the toning of the stomach im worried about, im ok for that. Its just loosing the flabby bits is all im trying to do. Im building the stomach up to come thru for when the flab goes

Thats the stomach cruncher we've got the same as your description.

Keep going when its hurts, keep going 5-10 more until your in agony.

The painful reps are the building reps.

As for losing the fat on the sides, on the ab roller cradle thingy, instead of laying on your back, do it also when your on the sides. It does the side muscle's

when doing leg raises you need to keep a slight kink in yr knees (prevents strain on the lower back) also keep yr toes pointed back!

good thing to get is a waist trimmer (not one of those electric jobbies) costs about 4 form Argos. Basically just wrap it round your waist and it makes you sweat loads.

Best thing to loose the gut is CV. Sit ups will only build the muscle won't loose the fat!!!

Do both

Dont need to swet. DOn and i have some fancy membership. Theres an extra area in another room thats away from the pool, thats got a selection of relaxation rooms. Couple of different level heated saunas, steam, cold plunge pool, some weird shaped showers, etc, loadsa stuff in there.

Si, yeah, take it to x amount, when it hurts, u just go them few extra I used to be a real fitness freak, but never needed to worry about loosing weight cos i was always slim/toned.
