STOP DOING CRUNCHES! STOP BUYING AB MACHINES AND ROUTINES ON TV THAT GIVES GUARANTEES! I may get a little slack for this one but I continue to see this at the gym everyday and often receive DMs with people starting out that's been incorporating crunches in there routine. You can do crunches all day long and see no change to the fat you have around your midsection because your heart rate isn’t high enough, which means you aren’t burning calories at a significant rate. It might feel as if you’re working hard because your AB muscles are burning and you can’t do more than 20 reps, but if you were to wear a heart rate monitor during #crunches, it would show that your heart rate rarely gets above 90 beats per minute. When it comes to burning fat and losing weight, your heart rate is the indicator of success. It’s simple math really: The higher your heart rate is, the more calories you burn, and the more calories you burn, the more fat you lose. One pound of fat is equal to 3,500 calories, so you need to focus on exercises that will get your heart rate high enough to burn the maximum amount of calories in the shortest amount of time. And besides, think of it this way, if your already lean and fit you can see your ABs and look at your weak points and then sculpt around them. When your starting out and overweight, it's like doing AB exercises with a pillow on your stomach. Bottom line... crunches will not make you lose weight! #propernutrition and spiking your heart rate will. Good luck and go crush some weights! (or hop on the stairmaster) I'm pulling for ya! DM me if you TRULY want to get in shape 🙌💪
