One of the main places people usually wish to loose fat – is their belly. Belly fat expands your waistline. And, this can make you feel self conscious about your appearance. Additionally, belly fat is also an especially dangerous type of fat that can raise your risk of disease. Exercise is a great for loosing belly fat, but it’s difficult to know where to start when picking exercise equipment. Here’s some of the best types of equipment for loosing belly fat.
A simple rule for loosing fat is – burn more calories than you take in. And cardio-based workouts are a great way to burn off belly fat. You’ll normally loose that dangerous visceral fat first (that’s the fat that gets packed between your organs) – but over time you’ll also loose subcutaneous fat as well (that’s the stuff right under your skin). 30-60 minutes of moderate intensity exercise is a perfect starting place. Types of cardio machines to look at: Treadmills, Elliptical Trainers, Exercise Bikes, Rowers, and Step Mills.
For longer term fat loss, weight training is a great choice. Your body naturally burns calories during the day. You burn extra calories when you are working out, no matter whether you’re workout is cardio or strength based. But with strength training, you also add muscle. This doesn’t mean getting “bulked up” – so weight training is a great choice for women as well. Since muscles take up less space than fat, even if you are adding a little bit of muscle, you’ll look leaner and more toned as the fat comes off. And, when you add muscle, you are also increasing your metabolism, so you’ll burn more fat even when you’re not working out. The best type of home equipment for fat loss is a home gym – one where you can do simple, yet effective large muscle workouts. Typical strength training exercises are Chest Press, Lat Pull Down, Leg Press, Shoulder Press, Leg Curl, Biceps Curl, and Triceps Extension.
