Bingo Wings and Saddlebags
Yeah…I recognize that was not the most appealing subject line ever, but those are topics that come up A LOT for the women we work with here at Move Well Fitness. For men, it’s more often the beer belly.
And the question surrounding those trouble spots is “how do I get rid of them?”
I’m bringing you the honest answer, which may be counterintuitive to what you have been taught or believe…
You CANNOT spot reduce body fat.
Crunches alone won’t reduce belly fat. Tricep extensions alone won’t reduce fat on the back of your arms. Squats alone won’t make the fat on your outer thighs vanish.
It’s never the answer people want to hear, but it’s the truth.
So, what do you do about things like bingo wings and saddlebags?
The only answer is to reduce overall body fat through a combination of proper nutrition, full body strength training, cardio, stress management, hydration, and GOOD sleep. Above all else, make sure you focus on those things daily.
Here at Move Well Fitness, we provide clients with all the fitness and nutrition resources they need to get the results they want, whether it’s reducing belly fat, arm fat, or leg fat, and more! And the best part is that because we’re focused on reducing overall body fat, your entire body will become more lean and defined.
Even more, we think that’s a win! ☺
And if you want to get a feel for the kind of workout you can do to support all of the above from the comfort of your home, check this out!
Set a timer for 20 minutes. Then, work for the first 35 seconds of each minute. Then, rest for the remaining 25. Go through the entire cycle of 5 exercises before repeating for a total of 4 rounds. Have fun! So, here’s the workout:
1. Regular squats
2. Narrow grip pushups
4. Alternating leg lunges
5. Side Planks
Let me know how it goes especially as you get rid of those bingo wings and saddlebags! ☺
