Time to Sit Up


This is what I need to do more of. For years I thought that the way you burn fat was genetically predisposed, so that certain people lose fat in certain areas faster than others. But as this video points out, when you work a specific muscle group, the blood flow increases to that region, and since fat needs oxygen to burn, this increases the metabolism of fat in that region.

Some people eat a chocolate bar and it "just goes to their hips". Me, I'm a belly guy. But apparently I should be doing less running and more sit-ups, cause my legs are getting huge and it's because they have to carry that extra belly weight! Time for "thinking position" (not featured in this video).

I think the hips expression is more common in women - it's women that get big hips and huge bottoms, while men generally get fatter in the stomach area. At least from my experience ;)
