It’s Fitness Friday time! Good thing, because we can’t wait until summer time to get ready! We have to start now! By popular demand, we have a three-part series called “Summer Stomach Slim Down”.  Lindsey Day is here to bust a few fitness myths!

Do squats – NOT sit ups for a slim stomach!

lindsey day fitness squatsMy clients often say- ‘Hey Lindsey I’m going to the pool this weekend – I need my abs looking right- can we do sit ups all session?

I say ‘No- my friend! We are going to squat our way to a six-pack today!’

Legs are such a large muscle group and the best way to burn belly fat is to increase your muscle!

Plus, a leg workout could burn 400 calories versus an ab workout that might burn 200 calories.

I mean, kind of…you cannot outwork a bad diet! Nutrition, sleep, and stress are about 85% of the battle! Fitness is that last 15%!

You don’t need a gym or fancy equipment. You can do it from the comfort of your home!

Use your own body weight or throw in dumbbells.

1) 1 minute of squats – Keep the weight in the heels of your feet. Shoulders back, chest up, spine straight.

2) 1 minute of stationary cross lunges – As you step your foot back, cross it over to the opposite side. Keep the weight in the heel of the front foot. Drop straight down making a 90 degree angle with both knees.

3) 1 minute of sumo squats – With your feet wide and toes pointed out, drop straight down making a 90 degree angle at your knees.

Rest 1 minute and repeat a total of 5 times for a full workout.

We’ll have part 2 in the  “Summer Stomach Slim Down” series next week!
