I mostly read on here, but I am not sure how to approach this part of my workout.
I'm still a beginer, but I started working out last year about this time at 160 lbs, and I'm 6 ft. tall. I currently weigh about 195 and I have increased my wieght lifting ability by a decent amount. I am now noticing that my stomach is increasing in size, and I notice this while driving in my car (**** jiggles over bumps, not cool, lol)
I have always had a flat (not defined) belly, and I don't want it to get any larger. I currently do not do any ab workouts, but I want to add them. What should I do to reduce the size and eventually define my stomach?
I did read the "Sit ups are Dead" article, and its very interesting, would that be a good workout to start with? What about cardio?
Thanks in advance.
How quickly are you gaining weight? Obviously from your post you've gained 35 pounds in the last year but what about recently? Adding ab workouts cant hurt but it wont help. Diet manipulation is the answer here.
6'2 - 105kg (231lb)
If it's jiggling that means you're gaining fat. Ab exercises won't spot reduce that. You need to modify your diet.
My weight gain has slowed, although I would like to weigh a bit more still.
Where should I start to change my diet? Should I reduce a specific type of food, or increase more of another?
Also on cardio, how much or often should I be doing it? At what point will it slow my muscle gain.
