If you want to reveal 6-pack abs by the pool or at the beach – skip the crunches, and even the planks! We now know it’s all about the cardio. Exercise scientists from Auburn University did a study and found that when people did ab-exercises for 6 weeks, they didn’t lose ANY abdominal fat. That’s because we can’t spot-reduce fat. We lose it all over. However, consistent amounts of aerobic exercise – like running or swimming – combined with strength training and a reduced calorie diet DOES result in weight loss, everywhere on your body, including your stomach.
