Truth or myth: Doing a lot of sit-ups is what makes tummy lose?
This myth is very present and it is necessary to demystify. Abdominal exercise develops the muscles that make up the abdominal and helps in burning fat. But if you perform only this exercise will not have the smooth belly you want. It is necessary to increase the burning of fat and decrease caloric intake for weight loss. It is not possible to lose localized fat, while increasing heart rate will be burning fat throughout the body, so all exercises are important to lose belly fat, especially exercises that increase heart rate, such as running, burpees, squats, HIIT training, bodybuilding, etc.
