How To Get Rid Of Back Fat And Replace It With Some Toned Muscles

We all have trouble areas in our bodies which never seem to lose fat easily. One of the most common trouble areas for many people is the back. This is probably because it is also the most neglected especially during home workouts. I will be telling you how to get rid of back fat but before I get into that, a quick glance at exactly what causes back fat.

If you have that stubborn back flab preventing you from rocking crop tops and tight tank tops, one of the common culprits for this is muscle atrophy. This is when your muscles lose strength and tone and as result end up being tender or replaced by fat. Muscle atrophy is caused by poor nutrition and lack of adequately engaging a specific muscle.

These two (poor nutrition and lack of exercise) are also responsible for causing fat to accumulate in your back. You can also blame your back fat on genes as some people tend to store fat in specific areas simply because this is the hand they were dealt.

The good news is, despite the reason behind your flabby back, you can lose the fat, gain some muscles and get that sexy back, back! The not so good news is that it will take some hard work since it is not possible to lose fat in one specific area. That been said, there is a lot to be done, so let’s go to town ladies and gentlemen!

Losing Weight Is A Mind Game, I Won!

“Losing weight is a mind game, change your mind and your body will follow.” I remember seeing these exact words printed on a stranger’s shirt. At first I paid no attention but later on, it got me thinking, can I really lose weight and just maybe get some curves on my body?

Well, in all honesty, this was not the first time I have thought about losing weight. It was something I had been struggling with for years. If anything, I was obsessed with it. I had tried so many routines to no avail and up until I came across the printed shirt, I had lost hope in ever losing weight.

I am not by any chance a doctor or a health expert. Just a girl who lost a huge amount of weight looking to share her weight loss success stories. Enjoy!

You have probably noticed these belts hanging in the corner of your gym and at some point, it has got you thinking, what and for whom are these meant for?

On the other hand, for people intending to lift heavy loads, the mechanism being a lifting belt is that; by wearing a belt, you apply pressure on your spine hence your legs and core are automatically tuned and prepared to support heavy weights.
