    How long to lose an inch off of waist?

    How long do you suppose it will take to lose an inch off my waist if I do 20 situps, 20 leg raises, and 25 pushps every day, and I also do 15 minutes of jogging and 15 squat thrusts every other day?

    A long time unless you diet properly. Eat the right foods and you'll loose that quick. I went from a 36 to a 32in waist in a month with no cardio. Of course that was quick newbie gain, gotta love it

    Hmm, every day i drink about 2 mugs of tea, and maybe a gallon of water. 1 or 2 sandwiches throughout the day (tuna/turkey), and a salad or soup. Sometimes a granola bar with milk.

    Is that a decent diet?

    You dont 'have' to have cardio to lose your gut etc.. you can do it via a proper diet and weights alone.. infact you can do it on a diet alone. The difference is the time frame. I have went from a 44 waist to a 40 by just doing a bb'ing diet and lifting weights. No cardio at all and this is in about a months time. Diet is the key.

    Man, everyone i asked has lost around 4 inches in a month. Thats pretty good. I'm around a 36 now, and about a month ago, i realized that i could tighten my belt by an extra notch (and still be comfortable).

    So is my diet good or not?

    It's not enough food. Spend time in the nutrition section and learn how to properly build a diet and what foods work for you. I've spent a couple years learning about nutrition and I still can't learn enough. The information is endless. Just start reading and applying.

    **** I take in like twice as much food as that, have become a fat burning machine and weigh 50 lbs less. Yeah Gstam - load up on some clean food and eat more frequently and THEN you'll watch the inches shed. Stomach vacuums will help a protruding gut a bit but other than that you can do a million crunches a day and still not get anywhere if that diet isn't in order.

    All the situps and leg raises in the world won't make you lose an inch off your waist. Clean up the diet, do some good cardio and do some vacuums.
    My Goals:

    For to make the heavy weights light and the baggy clothes tight.

    Exclamation Diet mainly but try working Transverse Abdominus

    There is no doubt that you cannot spot train to lose weight in specific areas. Losing bodyfat by restricting your total caloric intake is the main way to shed those inches.

    However, There is your transverse abdominus, a core muscle ignored by many lifters who just don't realize what it is or how to train it.

    The transverse abdominus is a core muscle located underneathed your rectus abdominus (ice cube six pack sheet of muscle). It looks like a weightlifting belt and it's purpose is to mainly hold your organs in tack, like your diaphragm.

    When this muscle is trained and developed, it tightens, in other words, it can shrink your waistline to a certain extent the more you train it. Most people just train their rectus and then wonder why their stomachs stick out so much, it's because their transverse is weak in comparison to the rectus.

    How do you train it?? As with every exercise you perform in the gym your core muscles should all be tightened throughout the entire motion of any exercise and this includes your transverse.

    To find it, use about a thumb's length measure below your navel. Now focus on that spot and keep your transverse held in, kind of like sucking in and holding that waistline muscle as tight as possible. Now do that before any movement in the gym, expecially during core specific resistance training.

    But do remember, for optimal results, you gotta diet right and lose that bodyfat!

    4 inches a month is INSANE. I would say 2 inches a month is Excellent. I would strive to go up 2 belt notches a month-that's great progress in my book. I like to slow cut (translation: I have a hard time cutting and am a carnivorous bastard)

    Clean foods are the same as whole foods. If adam and Eve couldn't have eaten it-you shouldn't eat it. The exceptions are low fat protein sources which has undergone some degree of processing-Cottage cheese, canned tuna, whey, milk.

    The less ingredients the better. 99% of condoments are garbage and unfit for human consumption.

    Keep it natural.

    Check out the stickies in the nutrition section. I've lost 20lbs since I read all of their ****.
