You’re Doing Cardio Wrong
Speaking of cardio, parking the treadmill at moderate intensity for 30 or so minutes won’t yield the same belly-reducing results as working in several short bursts of high-intensity intervals says Aranzamendez. Again, it all comes down to overall calorie burn: the more you torch, the more weight you’ll lose overall, including on your stomach.
And if you can ramp things up so your entire cardio routine is high-intensity, you’ll burn even more calories and dissolve your gut faster. Research from Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise lends support. Study subjects who did high-intensity cardio had better results reducing their waist size than participants in a low-impact cardio group.Back to top
