This Is What The Ideal Woman’s Body Should Look Like + Common Mistakes Women Make When Trying To Get In Shape
Ab training can pronounce the muscles of the core and create a tighter stomach, but it will not do much to cut down the fat.
Training your abs 2-3 times a week is more than enough.
Your fat loss efforts should be focused on diet and an HIIT routine.
Inadequate Post Workout Nutrition
After a workout your muscles are depleted of glycogen and craving nutrients.
It is important to get a proper post-workout meal in order for your body to ignite the muscle repair process.
A good benchmark for a proper post-workout meal is about 30 grams of protein and 40 grams of carbs.
Experiment to see how your body best responds.
During the hour after a tough workout your muscles are like sponges. They absorb much of what is consumed. It is very difficult for your body to gain fat during the post-workout window. Your body drives the nutrients straight to the muscle rather than storing them.
The 1-hour post-workout window is also the best time for you to consume your guilty pleasures.
Too Much Cardio
Cardio is most effective for people who are overweight and/or new to exercise. Overtime, however, the body adapts and begins to use energy and oxygen from more convenient sources, i.e. muscle tissue.
Excessive cardio is also related to an increased appetite for sugary foods to replace the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is lost during periods of chronic stress.
