How To Lose Chest Fat
In this video, a fitness professional will give you some tips on how to reduce chest fat using dumbbells and tone your upper body.
If you're looking to lose chest fat, that's fat around here, the front of your body, your pectoral major, there's a few things you should be doing. Firstly, and most importantly, look at your nutrition. You should be eating regular meals, low sugar levels, and try and get rid of the bad stuff.
That means processed foods, sugars, alcohol, these things are really detrimental to your body fat levels, and to your heart health as well. Next, you'd look at your cardiovascular training. Be it brisk walking, running, sports, whatever it is, do as much as you can.
The UK government recommends five days a week doing 30 minutes at a time of some exercises where you'll get a bit sweaty and out of breath, that's just for basic health, so if you're not doing that, that really should be pushed up. And finally, you'd look at resistance training. If you build up some muscle, particularly around your chest and your shoulders, your upper body, it'll be firmer and tighter, so it'll be less flappy, flabby, if that's what you're worried about.
I'm going to show you two exercises now, two resistance training exercises which strengthen and tone and firm up your upper body area. First of all, most fundamental one is the bench press. Now, not everyone has a bar, but a lot of people have dumbbells at home or in a gym, so we're going to use dumbbells, so it'll be a dumbbell bench press or a dumbbell press.
Keeping my back flat, pushing up, lowering down. Main thing to note, I'm doing it very slowly. Whenever you're lifting a weight over your head, you should be extra careful.
Next, I'm going to show you the fly. Spread out wide, really wide, stretching out the chest, and then come again. Again, very wide, and come again.
So, two resistance training exercises for the pectoral major, the press and the fly. So, to recap, look at nutrition, look at your cardio habits, and do some resistance training, and you'll definitely see a reduction in your chest fat. .
