Belly-Fat-ExercisesObesity is linked to several medical conditions including; heart disease, cancer, type II diabetes, and high blood pressure. 

An adult with a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or higher is considered obese.  For the average male, that’s about 200-209 pounds.  Research tells us that waist circumference predicts the risk of obesity related disease.  So, what is the best way to eliminate excess belly fat?  In a study published in The Journal of Obesity, February 2015, researchers found that men who increased the amount of time lifting weights by 20 minutes per day, had a smaller waist line gain during the study period than those who increased their aerobic exercise by 20 minutes per day.  The study involved 10,500 healthy men in the U.S. over a 12 year period.   Resistance exercise such as weight lifting provided the best results in this study for reducing belly fat gain, but aerobic exercise also reduces fat by burning excess calories. A combination of resistance and aerobic exercise could provide a synergistic result.  One way to combine strength training and aerobic exercise is with the GSX 360 exercise tool.  Small enough to take anywhere, and designed for the novice as well as the advanced fitness enthusiast.  With the GSX 360 it is possible to get a full body work out including abs, arms, lats, shoulders, and lower body in as little as 7 minutes per day.  It is possible to achieve toning, strength, muscle building, and aerobic exercise with a device that can be held in one hand, and can be used at home, the office, and travel.

5 Different Core Fitness Exercises You Can Do On a Budget

Core Fitness News TipsIf you are looking to build your core, you probably think that you need to swipe your gym membership card 6 days a week and hit the weights hard. The reality is that this is not the case. Building your core doesn’t have to be all about free weights and hours upon hours in the gym. In fact, using the following exercises can allow you to build your core at home without any weights.


Press Ups

Press ups are a great exercise that allow you to build your upper body as well as your abs, obliques and transverse abdominis. To perform this exercise place your hands a bit more than shoulder width apart and look up as you lower yourself so your chest is about an inch above the floor. Ensure that your body is straight and stiff the entire time. After you have done one press up, move your entire body to the right and perform another rep – crab style. Now move your body back to the left and repeat.


Plank Walk Outs

Start in a press up position and slowly walk your hands in front of you. When you begin to really feel the burn and think you can’t go any further, slowly start to walk back with your hands.



This difficult core exercise was actually developed by strength coach, Gary Cook. With this exercise you will start out on your back with your arms held above your head. Start by flexing one hip and bringing your thigh to your body while your calf remains parallel to the ground. Now flex your core and bring the elbow from your opposite side in to touch your knee. Now roll onto the flexed hip side and then return to the start position. Repeat this exercise for both sides and always remember to keep your relaxed and arm extended at all times.


If this is a little confusing, check out this video showing a demonstration of this core building exercise.


Bear Crawls

Start in a standard press up position. Bring one leg close to your arm on the same side while also walking your arm out on the opposite side in front of you. Then do the exact same thing with your other leg and arm. You can kick the difficulty meter up a notch by doing bear crawls both backwards and forwards.


Here is a video showing this exercise in action.

Cheap-Easy-Weight-LossToday we are bombarded with ads telling us that there is that particular service, fitness center or product that we need to help us get those extra pounds off and get fit.   In the United States, we spend over $ 60 billion per year trying to lose weight. Gym memberships and structured diet plans can be great if you have the time and money. But is all this necessary? Does losing extra pounds and getting fit really require spending hours at a gym, or in front of a T.V. doing insane exercises, or paying for prepackaged, smaller meals, and following severely restricted diets? The problem with fitness and dieting is that it has become much more complicated and expensive than needed. This causes many to become discouraged and just quit. The average gym membership requires an extended contract and costs about $55 per month, and 70% of the members don’t use it.

In his book THE 4 HOUR BODY, Tim Ferriss offers a simplified way to get fit and lose weight. Tim states that “It’s obvious that the rules require some rewriting”, and that’s exactly what Tim Ferriss did. He describes in his book, the MINIMUM EFFECTIVE DOSE (MED); the smallest dose that will produce the desired outcome. Wether it is burning fat, weight loss, or building muscle mass, applying anything other than the minimum effective dose is wasteful. I am not going to review Tim’s entire book here, but I do recommend reading it and using it as a reference. The point is that fat loss, strength building, toning, and developing a total sense of well-being, doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or take a lot of time. Expensive and complicated diet plans? One popular national diet system cost as little as $36 for a 2 month program. The problem is that once you buy their food and have it shipped, it cost $ 2,000 for six months. Can you lose weight without a structured, expensive plan? The simplest idea is just to eat less. Sounds too easy, and it is, yet millions of people do it regularly. Try portion control. Don’t buy the bad stuff, and it won’t be there for you to eat. One successful method is to cut your portion in half. Even if you are eating out where portions are very large, divide your plate in half and ask for a “to go” box and take the other half home to eat another day. Start with a salad first and eat slower. You’ll be amazed how quickly your hunger signals adjust to eating smaller amounts. The truth is that once you’ve made up your mind that you are going to lose weight and get fit, the rest is pretty simple. Expensive fitness equipment and gym memberships? Are you taking a brisk walk daily? Are you doing sit ups, jumping rope, or doing air squats at home or your office? With as little as a 5-10 minute per day work out you can quickly tone your body and start achieving your desired goals. In a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, researchers found that people who run as little as 5-10 minutes a day at a pace of just 10 minutes per hour, or slower, will add years to their life.

Start slow and enjoy the results. It doesn’t have to cost a small fortune and take a lot of time. There are many free weight loss and fitness resources available. First make up your mind to get fit and develop a set of personal goals. Write down those goals. Review your goals every day and do not get discouraged. Picture yourself as the healthy, fit person you want to be, and your goals will be achieved.
