The great thing about your body is it adapts to what you do or what you don’t do. Your body is constantly changing. How it changes is up to the practices that you adapt. First let me start with busting some myths about getting rid of back fat.
COMMON How To Get Rid of Back Fat Myths:
- You can target and sculpt only your back to reduce back fat: WRONG – You can not sculpt any one part of your body. I know, I Know, I KNOW… the late night infomercials say you can pick what area you want to lose weight in and BOOM, the magic pill or thingamajig will make it happen. Sorry, You have to burn overall fat.
- You Don’t Have to Do Cardio train your Back, Just pick some weights. WRONG. refer back to myth #1. You have to burn overall fat. Cardio is a great way to do that.
- If don’t need weights, cardio is enough. WRONG – Cardio burns calories while you are working out. Muscles burns calories while you are not working out. So you might want to build more muscles using your body or some weights because I am so sure that you are NOT working out most of the day.
- Eating and Nutrition isn’t that important. JUST NO. Wrong. HELL NO. What you eat might be the most important part of any weight loss journey.
