Why can’t I lose fat from my mid section? … The reason the sit-ups haven’t worked !

Fat loss is very much generalized across the body. There’s no specific exercise or system to lose fat from a single targeted area.

For example a tennis player has a dominant arm and shoulder that they repeatedly strike the ball with however if you was to measure the fat volume of both the left and right arm there would be no SIGNIFICANT difference as fat is used and “burned” as a general full body source.

The mid section is a common area in which many people carry a concentrated high percentage of there body fat. This doesn’t mean that it is an area that we don’t work hard enough in the gym. Its just the bodies natural way to store fat. The extent of fat stores is determined by your energy balance over time. (calorie consumption vs output)

Building muscle in specific areas is very much possible however building your abs that have fat deposits over the top still prevents visibility and isn’t as important when looking for better shape in this area.

The way to losing fat from the mid section is to trust the system your working on. If you have seen results so far from your training and nutrition, there’s no reason that it will stop working as long as you avoid deviating from your plan and adapt the overload of both training and nutrition as you progress.

Ab exercises are good for building ab strength and muscle volume of abs, however they don’t directly use up many calories meaning fat loss isn’t as optimal. In order to achieve better shaped or visible abs, the fat loss is the more important factor for 99% of people which is why programming should include bigger compound lifts like squats , deadlifts combined with all the other accessory and condition work in order to maximise calorie expenditure both in and out the gym.

Maintain consistency in your working approach.
