Spot-reducing doesn’t work — but these healthy tips can help you achieve the results you’re after!
Bump up your cardio
If you’re serious about getting rid of fat, you’ve got to start getting serious about cardio. You should perform 60-minute sessions five times a week to really notice a difference.
For even more-intense cardio, opt for interval training that alternates between periods of pushing your body and recovery, since it offers the afterburn effect. This means that after you exercise, your body can burn more calories – an extra 200 calories throughout the day, even at rest or sleep – than you would after completing a steadily paced workout.
Tone it up
Add moves that sculpt your back, shoulders, and obliques to reveal the strong muscles that lie beneath. Posture-improving exercises can also do wonders! Here are some workouts to add to your routine:
- Back exercises with a medicine ball
- Five-minute back workout
- Body-balancing back exercises
Go For Yoga
Quality strength training and cardio are key, but yoga can help you take off back fat too.
Increasing the intensity of your cardio and strength-training program is a great start when you’re looking to take off fat. Choosing healthier foods and cooking up cleaner recipes is essential in your battle against the back bulge.
