Do Sit Ups Burn Belly Fat
Crunches are not effective for burning fat, but only for defining muscles. Localized weight loss, only on the abdomen, can only be achieved by liposuction. That’s why it’s a big mistake to make dozens or hundreds of crunches to get rid of your belly.
The fat, wherever it is located, is in fact a deposit of energy, and energy deposits burn only through calorie deficit and cardio exercises, meaning those exercises that raise your pulse. Deposition of fat on the belly disappears with fat all over the body, through a healthy diet, slightly hypocaloric and exercise.
As for cardio exercises you can choose the classic ones: running, stepper, treadmill or bicycle, or you can be inventive. Any exercise to lift your pulse is welcome. More details on the pulse during cardio exercises can be found here:
For maximum efficiency, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) exercises are recommended. This means alternating a few minutes at medium intensity with one or two minutes at high intensity.
Excess crunches are dangerous for the spine
It is a huge mistake to make dozens or hundreds of abdomen to get rid of the belly. Moreover, most people do not know how to do the exercises correctly, so you can do it for nothing.
Secondly, the abdomen requires a lot of the spine and therefore should not be done daily. It is recommended to “work” the abdomen three times a week and not every day.
