Losing belly fat
Hello, this woman I work with is wondering what is the best way to lose her belly fat. She has a nice figure weighs between 130-140 but has a gut. I told her it is most likely from drinking all the time. She said she would cut back on the drinking and her diet sounds pretty clean to me. My question is what would be the best workout for her to target fat loss in her core area. HIIT training would be my guess..?

lots of reps..hanging leg raises..then I do 20/30 min of Ab's no rest on the core Ball..I mix it up and do twisty's with a stick in between sets..wrap up it with a rubber belt for a few months..it works for me

i usually do 3/33 for abs and squeezing at the top for double crunches. captain's chair leg raises i do 3/15 then some bridges. stuff like that will help learn her out. as said by lymbo, high reps. burn off all that belly fat

Along with what guejsn posted I'd say to decrease cortisol. I've read excess levels of cortisol stores fat in the stomach area. Diet and exercise.

Rosie's got the idea. Listen to her. I don't want to be redundant, but targeting one area of your body is not the answer.

It is hard to target a area, pretty much impossible. But if you do abs before cardio your body will be predisposed to burn more cals in that area because they are already warmed up. They will already have lots of bloodflow because of the reps in the abs training. And being stressed,will add to the amount of work they are doing. It is not going to do much but it is as good as it gets when you are trying to reduce the stomach size.
Make sure she eats a good amount of greens, protein, and slow carbs. Tell her to cycle some carbs in every 5th or 6th day to help leptin levels.
