I’m interested in getting my stomach tighter for Summer and I plan on getting myself a bike to ride around in, in my neighborhood. Do you think bike riding and drinking lots of water will help tighten up my ab area?
Kinky boots answer is the way to go.
The short answer is YES. riding a bike is an excellent way to get rid of that pot belly. All the stomach/core excercises that have been recommended will strengthen and tone your stomach, but it will still have a layer of fat covering it unless you do long sessions of cardiovascular exercise in the ‘fat burning’ zone.
exercise 20 to 30 minutes a day with your heart rate a 70 to 80% of maximum – max heart rate is generally 220 minus your age. Burn more calories than you take in. These are the ONLY non-medical methods for losing weight.
Drinking water will do nothing to help you lose weight unless you seriously curtail all other drinks that contain calories and drink water instead.
