Cutting workout?

#1 Postby mythil » Mon Jan 21, 2013 2:55 pm

Hi guys, I need a workout to help me, well cut weight yes but I'm carrying too much fat around my stomach and I haven't been able to get rid of it. Apart from my diet, what's a good workout I can do to help get the rest of the weight off?

i was always convinced that the harder i did cardio the more fat id burn, i usually just ended up burning everything and looking thin. but have since found doing slow easy cardio for 20mins, 2 or 3 times a day is working far better!

I'm not an expert, but to cut weight you need to expend more calories than you consume. Simple math. So the key is a hipocaloric diet for an extended period(until you are satisfied with your body fat), but by doing this you will lose some lean mass also. That means that a good workout would be something that you enjoy doing and can manage to do lots of it in order to burn more calories.

Personally I enjoyed training martial arts(wing chun and hung gar kung fu) when I was a teenager. That burned calories like hell and it was fun, highly recomended =)

Go through the journals here on this site and see what workouts and meals people that are cutting are doing. Also you can search under key word cutting and see what comes up, probably a lot of good threads.
