I am 5 foot 2 and weigh around 115 pounds. If I want my abs to be visible, how long would it take? I am training with a personal trainer for twice a week for an hour long and following a strict nutritious diet. Thank you!

Depending on your fat percentage, don’t give up and keep working hard and it should start in 3 weeks, plateau a smudge, and then hopefully after the second month you’ll see things that are headed in the right direction.

Hey, I've just started going to the gym more regularly, I have also changed my diet, diet protein shakes in the morning & after gym sessions, porridge, brown pasta and meats etc, is there anything key I should be cutting out of my diet to support my excercise? Xxx

Depends on your goals.  You sound like you know what you’re doing and that you’re on the right track with your goals though.

*weekends, Im afraid of looking how much I lost, since I still see lots of fat around my thighs& on the back of my hips. Any suggestions on how to slim that down? I curntly do around 1hr cardio a day and do stuff on the Matt with light weights30min(:

Heavier weights, don’t rest so often in between moves, eat less sweets, avoid sodas, and if you sit a lot during the day, try standing up or moving around more often.

Can someone go from 225 pounds to 197 in 60 days?

probably not healthily.  5 months is even a serious effort and shouldn’t be done repeatedly.  Just a lot of stress on the body is all.

Hi there! I really want to be fitter and more toned in 3 months from now. I will be doing cross-training workouts 4 times a week. (for 30 minutes each workout) I'm female in my 20's and I am slim, but very un-toned with a lot of body fat around my middle and thighs. Will I get good results from 4 workouts a week? Thanks! Any more advice and person experience would be appreciated!

Yes.  Focus on intensity of your workouts as opposed to duration and eating foods that are not so processed will help.

Heey. A while ago i had an accident while playing football/soccer and i torn my MCC ligament in my knee. I have been out for while and havent been able to do excerise in a long time. Now i am much better and have been given the all clear to do sport and go for runs but i dont feel as motivated to do excerise i used to before the incident. Is this normal. And how could i overcome this? Thank you , any advice would be greatly apprieciated.

FOR SURE normal.  Natural fear and body not wanting you to do it again.  Start by doing some form of exercise that is slow and perhaps stationary and weight bearing and focus first on upper body and slowly incorporate lower body  lighter weights.  It’s more of a mind thing than a body thing.

Hello! This may be a stupid question but I was just wondering how to get a flat, strong stomach. I've heard that you must do running/cardio before actual situps/crunches to burn that layer of fat. Now my question is, is it safe for me to just skip the running part and move onto the crunches? Im not overweight I have a few belly rolls I'd like to get rid of.

I answered already, right?  Not sure if Tumblr ate it but I said not a stupid question and to address eating properly first.

Yes. =)  Heavier weights.

Not a stupid question.

It’s for sure safe to skip to the crunches but the best way to begin seeing your abs is to address your eating and increase the intensity of your workouts.  Running and cardio is fine but eating properly is in my opinion the fastest way to seeing them.
