They’re especially noticeable when you’re wearing tight jeans: those soft pillows of lower back fat. It’s difficult to get rid of these pads, but definitely not impossible. What’s important is doing the right exercises, so you’re focusing on that lower back area in particular. A proper diet is also of the essence.
Exercise is important!
If you want to start burning that fat, the most important thing is to exercise regularly. Strength training is especially important because this is how you develop muscles and these, in turn, are important for burning a lot of calories. The fat on your back won’t suddenly disappear, but by training your muscles, your back will start to look more toned. That’s because your body will even burn fat when you’re not moving if you’ve developed enough muscle tissue.
A proper diet is also very important if you want to get rid of lower back fat. By regularly eating small portions, you get your metabolism going and this will help you burn fat faster. Make sure you primarily eat unprocessed products like veggies, fruit, wholemeal bread, brown rice and wholemeal pasta. Try to consume as little sugar as possible. Fibres, on the other hand, are great. They are more difficult to digest which means you’re body has to work hard to do so. And this works wonders for your fat burning!
