I have a client who is 125 lbs with 25% body fat, she is toned and lean except for her mid section. We do Pilates ab series and other Pilates excercises, ab machines, crunches, full sit ups with weights, and we’ve gotten into hoola hooping, still this is where most of her problem area is. Are there any different things we can do? Or some dietary change that may help?
The abdominal is usually the first place fat goes and last place it leaves.
The only way to achieve a lean stomach is to get a lower % of body fat.
To do this you’ll have to review her diet and nutrition and streamline it towards leaner foods.
Working out should be a mix of full/total body exercises. “Targeting” a body part doesn’t work and this is especially important for the stomach and surrounding areas.
