Ask any gym buff what the most difficult part about working-out is and chances are they’ll say it’s losing fat quickly. A major detriment to working-out consistently is boredom brought about by lack of motivation. Of course, results will come even slower by skipping gym sessions regularly.
In muscle development and fat loss, how fast we achieve results have less to do with body type (ectomorph, endomorph, etc.) than how we eat and exercise. Losing weight from body fat reduction really depends on how much excess calories we have when we hit our pillows at night.
Nutritionists and gym instructors will attest to the fact that body fat loss is a result of creating a calorie deficit each day. The calories we get from what we’ve eaten throughout the day are naturally converted into fat if we’re unable to utilize it through physical activity. Choosing the most efficient exercise in terms of usage of caloric energy determines how fast we see results.
Exercises that focus on the core muscles have been found to be highly-effective in facilitating rapid fat-loss and development of a lean midsection. Core exercises get the muscles of the abdomen, waist, lumbar region and the thighs working together and developing these enhances balance and total body strength as well as get rid of subcutaneous fat.
Working-out the core muscles simultaneously means a greater number of calories burned and hence faster fat loss. This is the perfect workout method for people like myself that get impatient easily when not seeing tangible effects from my labors.
The abdominal exercises in conventional workouts don’t really develop core-strength completely. Too much focus is put on the abdominal muscles and not enough on the obliques and lumbar region. Uneven development of core strength can put strain on the spinal column and cause back pain.
The wider range of motion and balancing efforts involved in Pilates and core exercises recruits more muscle fibers around the midsection. Obviously and this entails further usage of stored calories from body fat, toning-up the body and giving you faster results and increased motivation.
Burning more calories in less time through core exercises can shorten your sessions, lessening your chances of getting bored. Increased usage of caloric energy means a more efficient workout and more visible results- keeping you motivated and on the path to a lean, shredded physique in less time.
