Running, spinning, skating, almost all forms of cardio takes weight off the face first. Which is a good thing. You may find yourself looking a bit gaunt though, even wrinkly. And yet your tummy isn’t going down.
Abs work directly reduces swelling in the mid-section without aging the face. It burns calories while massaging the organs of the underbelly. The liver, the kidneys, the intestines, become bloated and deformed from alcohol and way too much meat and carbs.
Ab work returns them to their youthful suppleness. Much of the reduction in the belly comes from reducing the size of the organs, literally. The pregnant-looking gut, firm to the touch, may be the reflection of a leathery liver the size of a football. Or cruelly impacted bowels.
The fitness industry still hasn’t quite connected the dots. Nor are the benefits of core work on longevity even remotely understood. This is like a dark mysterious continent yet to be discovered. The rush will come.
At Panacea Studio, we’re ahead of the curve.
Abs is back this Saturday. See you there!
