There’s a notion going around that if you work specifically on a certain part of your body, it’ll change for good. In some respects, that’s true; do exercise on your arms and you will see a result within a couple of weeks, with your muscles becoming more toned and standing out. The same goes for your legs – there are muscles within which start to look more and more defined, from your thighs to your calves. But then there are the places which can’t be affected by workouts, and it’s more a case of genetics. What do you do with those, and where are they?
The more crunches you do, the more that you will tone up your abs. The more planks and yoga that you do, the more that you will build on your core strength that’s hiding within. But as for your outwardly appearance with your stomach, it’s more a case of sticking to a good diet and doing lots of cardio if you want to decrease the size of it. There are some factors which come into play which won’t change the size of it at all; if you are a mother, for example, you are more likely to have a little pouch which no amount of exercise will get rid of, which is just where your skin has stretched from when you carried your child/children.
Losing weight overall will change the shape of your face, but there’s not much in terms of exercise that you can do to really work it out. You can change the look of it by looking towards surgery, for example a fat transfer that will be able to take excess fat from elsewhere around your body and put it into specific places like your cheeks or forehead to remove any excess wrinkles. There are good blog posts online regarding the longevity of this procedure, such as Fat Transfer – How Long Does It Last? from Belcara Health. Getting some background on everything that there is to do with any procedure is definitely the best thing to do. If surgery isn’t for you, then make up is your friend to get the definition that you desire.
Don’t be lured in by the Kardashians and their projection of what a perfect behind should look like – it’s not going to be achieved by only a couple of months of working out. There are exercises that you can indulge in, such as squats and lunges, which will definitely work out your glutes and be able to give them definition. But as for everything else, there’s no promise that you will lose any weight from there. Spot-reducing fat is a myth which has been going round for decades, but working out on the areas that you want to change doesn’t mean that nothing will happen to them. You need to focus on the fact that you are doing the right thing in terms of your health and wellbeing first and foremost. Everything else will come in time.
