Have you tried getting rid of your belly fat but no workout plan has succeeded? Bet you haven’t tried the deadlift. I have every one of my personal-training clients performing the deadlift who wants to lose weight. If your No. 1 goal is to burn stubborn fat in your belly, you absolutely must make the deadlift a part of your weight loss program.
Excellent technique is important for getting rid of belly fat.
You probably think that routine exercises such as sit-ups, crunches and leg lifts make for the best abs workout; but that’s far from the truth. While these exercises might help you build abs, the outer layer of belly fat will still remain. The key therefore is to employ a technique that combines both building of muscle and burning of belly fat.
The deadlift is a multi-joint movement that engages nearly every muscle in your body, meaning it will speed up your metabolic rate, thus burning up fat faster. With this exercise, your metabolic rate is increased after the workout, even while sleeping, according you more benefits than side bends, crunches, leg raises, sit-ups and sitting twists. It will also stimulate production of fat burning hormones.
Barbell Beats Dumbbells for Burning Stomach Fat
To lose the most belly fat, you need to concentrate on the lower body muscles. The barbell will therefore be more suitable, because it will allow you to move significantly more resistance than will holding a dumbbell in each hand. A combination of deadlifts and squats will guarantee you the best possible outcome. A lot of unnecessary body fat tends to be concentrated around your belly, waist and hip area and therefore you want an exercise that involves your hip movement as much as possible.
