Back bulge around the bra area and that pesky muffin top plague plenty of women, and there are lots of ways to feel more confident in your own skin with a little extra effort. Spot-reducing doesn’t work — but these healthy tips can help you achieve the results you’re after!
Bump Up Your Cardio
If you’re serious about getting rid of fat, you’ve got to start getting serious about cardio. According to the USDA, you should perform 60-minute sessions five times a week to really notice a difference.
For even more-intense cardio, opt for interval training that alternates between periods of pushing your body and recovery, since it offers the afterburn effect. This means that after you exercise, your body can burn more calories — an extra 200 calories throughout the day, even at rest or sleep — than you would after completing a steadily paced workout.
According to celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser, increasing the intensity of your cardio and strength-training program is a great start when you’re looking to take off fat, but Anna’s other piece of advice is to “put down the fork.” Choosing healthier foods and cooking up cleaner recipes is essential in your battle against the back bulge.
