From start to finish of Abs Class, you lose 2 lbs on average. I’ve tracked this carefully by weighing myself, and other people, before and after the class.
Spin is approximately the same in terms of weight-loss. But you sweat more in spin, some of that weight-loss is water-weight, which you gain back upon re-hydration.
Abs Class removes weight specifically from the mid-section while cardio tends to remove the weight from your face and, for women, chest. That’s why long-distance runners can look gaunt, and some of us older people a bit wrinkly in the face.
If you’re serious about weight-loss take a 2-prong approach, cardio and abs. No make that a 3-prong approach because it’s all-for-not if you’re neglecting diet. Diet is something you need to work on every day at least a little.
Fat accumulates not only on the outside but the inside too. Around the organs: the kidneys, liver, intestines. The fat on the inside is more difficult to get rid of, requiring consistency over a longer period. But rest assured, it does go.
Try Intermittent Fasting. On every lever this remarkable diet is powerfully transformative. Balancing blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, naturally producing HGH, devouring fat! You’ll not only look better but live longer too.
See you at yoga tonight, Abs tomorrow morning, Weight-lifting Tuesdays.
