Best exercises to get rid of your muffin top

Calorie burning

Llyndir Hall Hotel 172Calorie-burning exercises can fight the muffin top, so try cycling, jogging or swimming. In the gym, stair climbing, treadmills and rowing machines, can be used for workouts that bust calories.

Interval training

Llyndir Hall Hotel 179Interval training involves exercise stages. An example of one of the best exercises to get rid of your muffin top is jogging for a few minutes at a moderate pace, then sprinting for a minute, then going back to moderate jogging for two minutes. This is repeated several times for about an hour.

Diet

Llyndir Hall Hotel 161Aim to lose about one to two pounds a week, because exercise will only have a limited effect unless diet is addressed. Cut your consumption of high sugar, alcohol and processed foods.

Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, and maybe even consider buying a processor to make healthy fruit and vegetable smoothies.

Many exercises can be done at home, but for the best results, take the advice of a personal fitness trainer. Many of our Hallmark Hotels have gyms and swimming pools where our expert staff can advise you on the best exercises to make muffin tops a thing of the past.Strathallan_Gym2

One of the obstacles that prevent regular exercise is lack of motivation. It helps to have a support group exercising together, as this will help raise the group’s moral and determination to stay fit, healthy and free of muffin tops.
