Six Pack Abs Questions - Toning and
Firming Abs After Abdominal Surgery
A year ago I was a thin kid at 111 lbs. I was hospitalized after
complications from an appendectomy and had zero food intake for 14 days. I also
had abdominal surgery. I think my metabolism went into shock and the surgical
area muscles added to my problem now. I have gained 30 some lbs. and have a gut
I can't seem to shake. I've tried eating very healthy and joined a fitness club
yesterday. How can you advise me to get started at the gym to focus on this area?
In terms of ridding fat from the stomach, your diet will be about
90% of your results. Without proper diet to shed the weight, you could do situps
and AB exercises all day and not get the results you're after. After you have
shed most of the weight with proper diet and cardio, I would then focus on specific
target training for the abdominal region. That being said, since you have had
surgical procedure, I recommend contacting your physician before starting any
training regimen just to make sure you are fine.
