Sit Ups

Recommended Posts

I've probably been doing around about 100 to 200 sit ups a day. I was just wondering because ive heard from other people. Can you actually lose weight from them? Do they bulk up your stomich up much?

Just need a few answers :)

 

Thanks.

i found this, it might help you!

 

Despite popular belief, isolated ab exercises will not bring you any closer to your 6-pack goal. In fact, these type of exercises won't do much of anything besides waste your time -- time you could be spending doing exercises that will get you that washboard stomach. As a fitness professional, I've been telling people this secret for years, so why then, are so many gym goers still hooked on crunches and side bends?

 

How To Properly Workout Your Abs For A Super-Toned Midsection

 

* Stop doing any type of isolated abdominal exercises such as crunches or side bends. These type of movements are a waste of time.

 

 

* Start lifting heavier weights and do full body exercises such as squats, lunges, and deadlifts (and the many variations of these exercises).

 

 

* Mix up weight lifting with interval training such as HIIT (high intensity interval training) to burn the fat all over.

 

Remember, there is no such thing as "spot reduction" when it comes to fat loss. You have to get rid of the fat from your entire body - not just from the abdomen. Stick to a healthy diet low in simple sugars, especially if your insulin insensitive. That means if you used to consume lots of sugar in your diet, your body becomes somewhat resistant to insulin. Since insulin is a storage hormone, you become more efficient at storing fat, especially around the abdominal area.

 

Hope this helps mate.

Well that's kind of mean mate.

I'm 5'4" and weigh 127kg.

the last fat test said I was 47% fat..

 

that's not too bad.

at least it's not more than half..

 

I think it's a bit mean of you to call me "some fat guy behind a computer"

what makes you say that to me?

did I say something to upset you?

 

did I give wrong advice?

i havent noticed much going on with my situps, i do them for personal goals. main one being the min army req of 40. i can now shit all over that. i would say a number but bragging isnt my thing and i know people can do better than me anyway. they are the military situp tho is that makes any diff.

one that im liking now is the reverse situp or whatever where you keep your back on the floor and bring your legs up.

 

positives is i feel good, and my lower back used to be real weak but since hitting the situps i think theyve helped.

reverse situps strengthen the back hey?

hmm... might swap the deadlifts for these..

bonus is that I won't get sore hands or chalk all over my clothes..

 

thanks mate.
