Will Crunches Flatten My Stomach?

To Crunch Or Not To Crunch, That Is The Question.
By Carl Lanore

Everyone wants washboard abs but how exactly do you get them? 
The answer has not been very clear and many professional 
fitness trainers disagree about the proper way to achieve that
desirable mid section. This causes much confusion amongst 
their clients. "Am I wasting my time doing hours of abdominal 
work every week?"

For some time now there have been two schools of thought  
those who believe the only way to see your abs is to focus on 
shedding whole-body fat levels through d iet and aerobic 
exercise, and those who say that you have to do lots of 
abdominal exercises to reduce the fat in you mid-section.

Up until now, many scoffed at the premise of exercise induced 
spot-fat-reduction. Well the jury is finally in and it appears 
that spot-fat reduction is a reality.

While whole body fat reduction is best served by reducing 
caloric intake and performing aerobic exercise, there is now 
evidence that the fat that is directly adjacent to the working 
muscles burns at a higher rate than fat that is adjacent to 
the resting muscles. It stands to reason, but until now, has 
not been proven.

A study published this month by the Department of Medical 
Physiology at the Panum Institute, University of Copenhagen 
in Denmark showed that subjects who performed high repetition 
leg extensions at varying intervals and resistance levels for 
up to two hours with one leg at a time exhibited a higher 
degree of fat oxidation in area directly adjacent to the 
working leg muscles.

This increase in fat oxidation was irrespective to exercise 
duration or intensity. The fat directly adjacent to the 
working muscles burned at a higher rate than the resting 
muscles. Period.

This increased fat oxidation was also associated with a 
higher degree of blood flow to the local area of the working 
muscles and adjacent fatty tissue. This may enhance the fats 
ability to be carried away and disposed of by the liver thus 
increasing the likelihood that the fat won't simply be 
re-deposited elsewhere.

The take away from this study is very clear and should put 
the debate over exercise induced spot-fat reduction to rest 
once and for all. If you want to rid yourself of the fat 
that covers a specific area of your body, such as your abs, 
you'll have the greatest success if you focus on exercises 
that work the muscles directly adjacent to the problem area. 
If you want washboard abs you'll have to start doing more 
abdominal work.
