Losing weight in lower abs

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in lower abs


Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
1107486 tn?1258400832 Before I go to bed everyday I do 50 situps for upper abs, 20 side crutches for my obliques, 20 knee raises for my lower abs. But, I try to do different exercises each night. Like one night is all about abs and the next night is all about legs. I'm doing everything right but I'm not getting the results wanted. HELPP!!
Avatar f tn Love handles are deposits of fat around the hips. They increase the risk of developing dangerous visceral fat that builds up around the organs. You can't lose weight in one area of your body. That's called spot reduction. The fastest and easiest way to lose your love handles is by losing weight. You need to eat healthier foods that are loaded with nutrients. Eating nothing but fruits, greens, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, low fat dairy products, beans and fish.
Avatar n tn re working or why -- exercise can be for fun, for health, for losing weight, for getting oversized muscles, for performance in a sport -- so your entire workout would go a long way to answering this question. I personally don't think it matters much unless, say, you have a bad lower back, in which case you might want to wait to do abs for last so you can then ease up the stress on the lower back.
Avatar f tn Hello im 17 and i currently workout and run, while the upper part of my body seems to be hard and toned, the lower part of my belly does not. I have abs under all my lower belly fat but cant figure out a way to get rid of the fat so that itll show. Any help??
1292438 tn?1276120904 Im just wondering.. what are the best work outs for abs/lower body? i'm already pretty fit and im a soccer player. i play competively and im just wondering what the best work outs are for abs and legs?
Avatar n tn I used to compete as both a bodybuilder and also as a national level power lifter - there really is only one thing that brings out abs - strict diet and cardio. All the crunches and sit ups in the world will not help. I recommend following a high protein low carb diet for 16 weeks along with a 30 minute cardio routine (running is best) at least 4 times a week - also continue with weightlifting as the promotion of muscle tissue assists with keeping the metabolism strong. Best of Luck.
Avatar f tn I have gained a huge amount of weight in this short 3 months, and have always had a toned firm core/abs. It is now a flabby mess. Is there any exercise I can do to slowly firm up my abs? And how long do I need to weight to workout again (stationery bike)? I am walking, and occasionally swimming but not losing any weight, I just keep getting fatter.
Avatar f tn Standing hold a dumbbell by your left side with your feet close together. Bend your torso to the left to lower the weight along the side of your leg and then to the right to lift the weight. Continue this movement pattern for at least 12 repetitions, then switch sides. Put on ankle weights and hold a dumbbell in each hand, then lie face down on the floor with your arms extended forward.
4763883 tn?1359415784 Hey everyone~ I'm a 17 year old girl, and I've tried tons of diets. Currently, I'm just eating healthy, raw foods, and doing cardio. (700 calories running on my incline trainer every day) But I'm skinny.. It's only a little belly lump that's bothering me. The little lower belly lump. So apparently I'm supposed to do crunches, and excersises that focus on the lower abs- but I've never done this stuff. Anyone have any tips?
Avatar n tn he was in remission from Feb 10 to Aug 2010. On Aug 13, 2010, noticing that he was losing weight, his lab works were done and it shows TSH of <0.01, FT4 3.4 H (range 0.73-1.96) and FT3 10.4 H (2.3-4.2), thyroid peroxidate AB 89 (range < 35), thyroglobulin <0.5 (range <55), thyroglobulin AB 1709 (range < 40), TRAB 12.22 (range <1.75). He is talking Methimazol (2 x 5 mg a day) since Aug 13. It seems all his thyroid antibodies, both Hasi and Graves, are high.
Avatar m tn I agree with louise. try some workout and lose overall weight may result in losing face fat.

2053729 tn?1330435506 According to what I have researched, my BMR is 2485 and I eat about 1800 calories a day, so I should be losing weight just being me. Add in the approximate 2000 calories I burn with my exercise and I should be melting into a puddle! We do a lot of weights, pilates, abs, pushups, strength bands and squats at my aerobics class so I know my body is changing. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I have had my thyroid checked in the last 4 months and it was "normal".
Avatar f tn I work out at least 3× a week. Yet i cant seem to flatten my lower abs. There is still a little pouch. Any exercise or eatting ideas?
Avatar m tn Also before all these symptoms came i have lost about 10-15 lbs and ive never been this low in weight in a very long time so i was thinking maybe i got thinner so it has something do to wit it? i dont know please can someone help me. I am thinking maybe its prostatitus, UTI?
973741 tn?1342342773 So, when one is getting in shape and doing a balance of cardio and strength training including core work, is it wise to do sit ups and abdominal exercises? I took an exercise class today and it was almost over (it was a cardio/strength class with a substitute teacher) when someone inquired "Aren't we doing abs?". And the instructor said nope.
Avatar f tn Back in December I started a weight loss program through diet and exercise. To start I was 140 lbs, now I am 113 lbs. I'm 23 years old, female, petite, small frame and short. I'm only 5 feet 2 inches. I've done a great job eating right and exercising. I've been able to tone up my arms and legs through weight training/brisk walking. My stomach is definitely smaller, toned a little bit, however, I still have lower abdominal fat. Often called the "lower belly pooch".
Avatar n tn I'll send the question right back to you...! Is your weight stable? If it is, then your calories are right on the mark. If you feel like you are slowly losing weight, then I'd probably recommend amping it up a little.
Avatar f tn I've been,doing ab exercises to tone my stomach. I've been on YouTube trying to find ones for lower abs. I'm doing double of the amount they suggest, but my lower abs are not changing. My upper abs had. What should I do for the lower??
Avatar n tn The stabilizing muscles in your abs, upper and lower back, and shoulders work harder than they would in a traditional plank. Anti-Rotation Crunch Attach a rope to the low pulley of a cable station and lie on your back alongside the stack. With both hands, hold the rope in front of your chest. Perform a crunch, arms locked, and don't let your torso rotate (even though the cable pulls you sideways). Pause, and return to the starting position. Do 15 reps, switch sides, and repeat.
Avatar f tn After urinating I started getting this small pain in my lower abs/vagina. Sometimes after I finish urinating, I feel as if i have to urinate more but I go and nothing comes out.
