Crunches get rid of my layer of fat over my muslce?
If I do ab work (like crunches, sit ups, and leg lifts or an ab exercise on a video) will it get rid of the thin layer of fat on my stomache. Because I am pretty skinny, and I DO have stomache muscle, but I have a thin layer of fat overtop of it. So the muslce isn't really visible. The fat layer is thin, but still visible, and I don't like it. Will crunches and ab work get rid of that, or will it just make more muscle underneath, and leave the fat there? Because I don't want to go on a diet, I don't need it. Thanks in advance! =)
How do I get rid of the small layer of fat covering my abs?
Good advice here already, but I'll add on to that. To lose the fat on your belly you need to lower body fat percentage. There is no such thing as spot fat removal, you can not chose to lose only fat on your belly. Unfortunately the belly holds the most fat so it takes the longest amount of time to get rid of. If you've already been losing fat and now your left with only the stubborn belly, just keep going and it will go away. If you don't know how to lose fat, you need to burn more calories then you consume each day and slowly but surely the fat will go away, but do not starve yourself or your body will hold onto it. Try starting by eating about 200-300 calories below your maintenance calories. Get your sleep and drinks lots of water. I hope that helps.
What's the quickest way to get rid of a flabby stomach?
Cardio will actually be the only thing to get rid of a flabby stomach. Crunches will tone muscles UNDER the layer of fat, but if you do cardio, you'll get rid of that layer of fat, and then you can start doing crunches to tone your stomach up. I would suggest doing 45-60 minutes of cardio (4-6 times a week). You see, after doing 30 minutes of cardio, your body switches from burning carbs to burning fat!
I have abs, but they are hidden by a very thin layer of fat. How do I get rid of this naturally?
Every unexperienced gym lad at some point in his fitness career gets faced with this problem. The solution is easy.That’s because there is not one - there are multiple solutions to our problem!How to get rid of stomach fat layers naturally?1) NutritionNutrition is around 60–70% of your sixpack success. If you do not get the nutrition right (does not have to be 100% right) - you will not be able to get a sixpack. Period.Educate yourself about fitness nutrition, choose a diet that you are able to maintain for the next years (ideally you shouldn’t consider it a “diet” - you should consider it your life!) and lastly, make sure you are able to stick to your diet. How?Tell everyone that you are on a strict diet.Reward yourself when sticking to your dietary plan.Cook easy meals - do not overcomplicate.2) ExerciseIncrease volume.Decrease pause time between sets.Make it more intense.Especially if you feel too lazy to do cardio, make sure to have as intense workout sessions as possible - so that you burn enough calories in the process.3) CardioI hate to admit it, but cardio does play a crucial role in developing that rock-hard abs look. Especially after adjustments to your diet and exercise do not yield further results (which means you have come very far already) - cardio will give you that little bit extra definition which is needed to be stage-ready.4) Stay motivatedLast but not least, stay motivated, embrace to process. It is not easy and nobody said it would be easy. But you know what?

I have a layer of fat overlapping my rib cage. how do i get rid of it?
i don't want my ribs to show or anything, i just don't want my bra to sink into my fat. it's really uncomfortable. and i'm not fat, either. i just have fat there and my stomach :P
My stomach(mostly lower) is really bulky and wide with fat over top and i cant get rid of it?
Everyone has a six pack. It is called the rectus abdominus muscle, and we were all born with it. The reason you can see it on some people and not on others is simply due to the amount of bodyfat a person has. In order to see the six pack, a female realistically needs a bodyfat percentage of probably 20% or less. In a male, we're talking closer to 10%. All of the crunches, situps, leg lifts, and other ab exercises in the world will not make a bit of difference if you don't lower your overall bodyfat %. And, remember, there is no scientific basis for spot reduction, so doing all of those ab exercises does not burn the fat around your waist. Your body simply does not work that way. The best way to see the six pack is to follow a comprehensive, full body fitness program designed to lower your bodyfat. There are several good ones out there. A few to check out would be Turbulence Training by Craig Ballantyne, Burn The Fat, Feed the Muscle by Tom Venuto, and The Truth About Six Pack Abs by Mike Geary.

What's the best way to get rid of the last layer of lower belly fat?
I can’t really tell if you are really lean standing below 10% body fat and you want to get rid of that last bit of belly fat then there are a few strategies:Most of the man carry stubborn fat on their lower belly, the blood flow on those places is really low so there are a few strategies to target those spots:1.Intermittent Fasting where you fast for a period of time decreasing your insulin levels then doing HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training)on an empty stomach this would improve the blood flow on those places and target your stubborn spots faster.2. Ketogenic Diets combined with IF they work wonders, When you fast you’ll decrease your insulin levels which will force your body into ketosis where it relies to your fat stores instead of carbs as primary source of energy, basically fasting gets you faster into ketosis, Empty stomach HIIT also forces you faster into ketosis and combine that with a 20–30 grams of carbs a day with a ketogenic diet, your insulin levels will never spike so you’ll turn your body into a fat burning machine constantly targetting those stubborn spots.Keep in mind water fluctuations play a big role also on your visual impact, since when you consume carbs you carry water retention and it will be termendous to the eye when you are standing on a low body fat percentage, so when you enter ketosis you’ll lose all that water retention from removing the carbs or glycose which is mainly water retention.I stand at 6% body fat fasting and doing hiitt without a keto diet.However i still carry a little bit of extra stubborn fat on my thighs, hips and butt those were my genetically rich places, so the only way that i would lose them is to go into ketosis, since when i eat carbs those areas get fluctuated and i carry water retention on those areas, so even at 6% body fat the only thing that made them go away was a Ketogenic Diet.Also keep in mind none of the above will work if you are not following a calorie deficit diet.
How can i burn the layer of fat above my abs?
Well i work out a lot and i have abs because i can feel them but i keep asking why i cant see them. Everyone tells me its because i have a layer of fat covering them. How can i burn that layer of fat?
Have a lot of muscle, but a layer of fat over it all?
Losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time is pretty hard but it is possible to an extent. You are going to have to eat perfect. You need to find the calorie level that puts your body in a *slight* state of caloric deficiency. A very simple formula is to multiply 15 calories times your bodyweight then subtract 500 (trust me there's way more accurate and in-depth formulas if you just google it) So far a 200 lb man --- 15x200 = 3000 cal (caloric maintenance level) 3000 - 500 = 2500 cal (ideal fat loss level) Ok, so get your number and eat a protein heavy diet (but make sure you still are getting enough carbs and fats - very important) Eat 5-6 times a days and drink a lot of WATER! (this is very important for protein heavy diets) Having a higher ratio of protein calories means your body will have less carbs to use as fuel (and therefore will burn fat stores for energy) at the same time having ample protein to maintain the muscle mass you already have. Do cardio at least 3x a week at high intensity for at least 30 min to help promote fat loss. Keep working out your muscles hard with intense weight training 3x a week. Make sure you get plenty of rest, take vitamins, get enough fiber and stay away from junk food and soda. Do this for 3 months you should be able to maintain, if not increase muscle mass while you burn a significant amount of fat. Good luck! http://www.bestmuscleprograms.com
