Think you can get a six-pack without lipo? Maybe, but endless ab exercises, crunches and weight training simply may not be enough on their own to get you the washboard stomach you’ve always wanted. It doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong. The truth is, sculpting your body to that extent without liposuction is very difficult.
Getting a true six-pack is hard. Many people believe that if they target exercise to a certain area of their body, it will help them lose fat in that area. That’s why those who want flat abs do lots of crunches and other abdominal exercises. This is one of the most persistent myths regarding weight loss. To actually achieve those abs, you’ll need to do far more than sit-ups.
The foundation for a true six-pack begins with total body health, and will require a lot of hard work and commitment. The first step is diet: eat healthy, low-calorie foods consistently. Fresh fruits and vegetables will bring you a lot closer to the perfect body than fast food and greasy snacks. The next step is a well-rounded cardio exercise program. A healthy heart is necessary for a trim, healthy body. Finally, a good personal trainer can guide you in whole-body strength training which will bulk and sculpt your muscles, including your abs.
When All Else Fails
Even though you’re eating right, doing your cardio faithfully and following your strength training program religiously, you may still be battling abdominal fat. This is surprisingly common. Regardless of how committed you are, your genetic makeup may be holding you back. Our bodies hold fat deposits based on genetics and other factors. Oftentimes, this means that although you reached your target weight long ago and your body is looking slim and trim, a few stubborn fat bulges remain.
There is a solution, though. Unlike dieting and exercise, which only shrink fat cells, liposuction physically removes them from your body so they won’t come back to the same place again.* Making an appointment for liposuction at our Denver offices can get rid of that last irritating obstacle to the abs you’ve always wanted.*
