Belly fat now-a-days is a huge problem. One has to do a lot of things to get this fat away. Too often people work on their abs everyday without rest, hoping to burn that stubborn fat off with more workouts.

However, your abdominal muscles are just like every other muscle in your body, so it should be trained the same way as you train for your biceps or your chest.

The strength training should be at least 2 to 3 times a week, with rest in between and a variety of exercises to target different areas of the abs.

Despite the hard work of trainers everywhere, people still cling to outdated ideas on the proper way to workout their abs and get that desired “six-packs.”

Abs are made in the kitchen not in the gym. The real trouble is diet. Running all day will not affect the belly fat at all. The only way to burn fat from your belly is to reduce overall body fat by creating a calorie deficit.

The healthiest way to do that is with consistent exercise – cardio, crossfit, weight training, flexibility and a healthy low-calorie diet. The real key to strong abs is about quality, not quantity.
