Hi, this is Jason Morgan with Muscleworx Fitness in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. Today, we are going to be discussing exercises to help you burn upper abdominal fat. You are generally going to notice the greatest reduction of fat in your upper abdominals first and foremost. The lower abdominals tends to be the last and toughest place for fat to come off of. But one of the best ways that you can burn abdominal fat is what's commonly referred to as hybrid training. Hybrid training is a combination of cardiovascular as well as weight training in the same block of time. Or at the performing the same movement. One of the best exercises to do that is something I refer to as a dumbbell superman. It's a combination of movements that are done together that provide mass building or muscle building as well as an increase heart rate which gets cardiovascular system at work. So, you are going to get maximum fat burning as well as muscle building at the same time. While you are doing a dumbbell superman you want to make sure that you maintain your core stabilization. Hold your abs tight, shoulders back. Start by squatting down holding the dumbbells by your side placing them on the floor. Kick your feet back both at the same time into a squat thrust position. Go down into a push up completing a full push up. Bring your feet back forward. Stand to the upright position performing a dumbbell curl into a overheard shoulder press. Bring the dumbbells back down by your sides and repeat the motion. Another exercise we'll talk about is the sternum crunch. Sternum crunches are generally performed on a flat bench with a barbell held above your head in a starting position similar to a bench press. All you are going to do here is raise the shoulders slightly up off the bench allowing the weight to move through the air, causing a crunch that's very targeted to the upper portion of the abdominal region just under the ribcage. Please remember these tips are just to provide basic information. Always consult with your health care provider and a fitness consultant before beginning any diet or exercise program.
