Q: I have a fairly regimented fitness program including weights and cardio (which involves a fair bit of running) and abdominal exercises. I am a fairly fit and active person, but I have a small amount of fat on my lower stomach area that I simply cannot shift.

Can you help?


A: It almost sounds like you are stuck in an exercise rut.

Cross- training with alternate exercise disciplines (pilates and yoga)
which focus on core muscles will fire up your metabolism and abdominals significantly.

If you keep doing the same old things, you will always have the same old results.  Challenging the body with new and different exercises will recruit new and different muscles - deep muscles of the transverse abdominals - in this case.

Also, you need to work out with a qualified fitness teacher/trainer that can provide consistent feedback on form, control and execution.
