Question by FoxStride: What workouts are the best to build muscle and lose fat in the abdominal and thigh area?
For me, prevention from being an obese weakling seems like a wise choice.
It makes sense to get a healthy weight and feel great about it too then saying ” I’ll do it in 2 years…”. Then all of a sudden your fat and its even harder to lose the tripled amount of weight when your weak and have so much “blubber”.
So, whats the best workouts to gain muscle and lose fat ( Preferably the abdominal and thigh area.)?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWER! That’s if you answer…
( By the way… I know I have to eat healthy too, but that’s for another “Q”…)

Muscle specific exercises will not drop weight from the areas that they work. You could do a thousand sit ups a day and not get a six pack if you aren’t eating properly. As a matter of fact, building your bigger muscles like your quads, hamstrings, pectorals, lats, and deltoids will burn more fat than anything else. Once you start working out your ENTIRE body and efficiently burning any fat you take in, you can start to focus more on abdominal specific exercises. There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of ab exercises out there, from sit ups to knee ups to leg levers, flutter kicks, dying crosses, planks, I could go on and on, but there is plenty of information out there on these. I’m not going to hold your hand on that one.
Squats are the king of all exercises (short of perhaps swimming). You work every major muscle group in your body. Start there, then work on quad extensions, ham curls, and reverse lunges if you feel so inclined.
