A post revealing the facts about crunches and cardio. Read along and find out more about it and what to do about it by By The Leading Brisbane Personal Trainers and Gym Specialists - Helfi Team.
Upon stumbling across some research, the other day, we read a piece that reinforced what we already know, yet so many people still believe the myth. According to Men's Health magazine, it takes more than 45,000 crunches to burn a kilo of belly fat. So you'll never get a flat stomach or six pack abs while crunching away on the ground.
So then we get the calculator out and work out how many calories are burnt in 1 hour of cardio to work out exactly how many hours we need to run FLAT OUT to burn 8000 calories of fat (ie approx 8000 calories in 1 kg of fat). Well assuming someone can run FLAT OUT for 13 hours straight, they will reward themselves with 1 kg of fat loss... Yippie... So how realistic is is to get a flatter stomach or drop a couple of kilos of fat, while relying on cardio?
On the other hand, crunches and too much cardio can literally be a pain in the neck, lower back knees and ankles. And there is nothing exciting about moving belly fat around that wont go away. So why not get some proper guidance from the team at Helfi Addiciton 24/7 Fitness Centres, and do what suggest, and follow a more balanced system that not only puts put them aside, but introduces to you an easier way to burning fat...
So here is what we suggest you should you do instead?
Get started with a proper exercise program designed to activate fat burning even when you sleep. Let us help you compliment this with the right nutrition system that will ensure your training is not going to waste.
