Achieving your fitness goals can be easy if you just know a few simple things. Were going to break down some of the most important ones right now.
1 Diet: Six pack abs are made in the kitchen not the gym. Diet is the most important part of losing weight. No matter what you do if you don’t burn more calories than you consume most days of the week, you aren’t going to lose weight. If you want six-pack abs, you need a very low body fat percentage and that means eating properly. No amount of crunches are going to give you a six-pack if you still have a layer of fat covering them up, so watch your diet. Try using a calorie counting smart phone app to help you out.

Exercise balls have gained popularity recently as a better alternative to sitting in an office chair all day, but is sitting on an “office ball” better for you and your back than an office chair?
Apparently you’ll burn about 30 more calories a day sitting on a ball instead of a chair, which is almost nothing. You’ll burn about 30 calories in about 10 minutes of walking, or about two minutes of running. Conversely, you’ll consume 30 calories in one Swedish Fish candy.
So I know what you’re thinking. Common! 30 calories burned is better than nothing! Unfortunately another study said sitting on a ball instead of a chair causes “more spinal shrinkage” which most of us probably want to avoid.
So at the end of the day, what should you do? Sit up straight and take breaks where you walk around. Also, use the stairs if you can.
