    My 2 cents is that your stomach looks well proportioned to your build. You look pretty lean to me. You don't want to create the "my stomach is being vacuumed under my rib cage" look.

    Anywho, a wide range of abdominal exercises, watching what you eat, and drink. A lot of people here swear by HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and maybe try to intergrate some higher intensity resistance work outs (circuit training, or functional type training) to beef up the calories burned in your workouts. If you do the same things over and over again your body gets used to it and it won't respond. Eat small meals often to ensure your body doesn't go into starvation/fat storing mode.

    Stop eating pie.

    But on a more serious note...
    I'm working on the same thing. I want ripples. You have a beautiful body, BTW. Umm... I'm having some luck by substituting coffee for breakfast (LOL). The rowing machine seems to help-- and a LOT of stretching...

    you can´t lose stomach weight.

    You can´t control where your body stores fat, it´s genetic. You can loose weight and you can change body composition, but there is no way of losing it in one place, despite what the infomercial in my gym said today.

    Three things: it could be bloating, solution diet.
    It could be muscle weakness, solution, core exercises
    it could be fat, solution diet and interval training.

    Aim to increase muscle mass, then taking off the fat is not too hard.


    Oh and Dan, I love you, but having coffee as breakfast is DUMB. I hope you were joking.

    There are several other threads on this. You can not lose weight from a select part of your body. The only way to burn fat is to burn more calories than you take in.

    EricLA has a good point...

    All I've done to make a difference is cut down calories, eat less fat and carbs, and exercise more.

    I truly believe, btw, that rowing is the best exercise you can do at the gym. Every muscle in the body. You can focus on whatever you want and use those muscles to make the motion happen... if you can tolerate the monotony of rowing on a stupid phucking machine. I put on music that takes me to another universe and just zone out with my eyes closed.

    Your tummy is like the basement. All that shit that you don't need just sits there.

    Spot reduction is a myth, a bad one too.

    You gotta sweat man. Get on the treadmill and jog for 25 minutes, 4 times a week. That is how I got a killer washboard stomach. The one you see now is nothing compared to what jogging can do. Your whole body will be sculpted muscle. Not to mention when you are ripped your vascularity shows more. (5 minute warm up, 5 minute cool down). What everyone said about spot reduction is true. You cant get a washboard by just doing ab exercises. Those build the muscle and aerobic activity burns off the fat covering the muscle. Eat as much fat free as you can but remember that fat is necessary for nerve sheath production, joint lubrication and a numerous amount of other bodily functions.

    You can't spot lose, but upping your cardio to the max will shed extra jiggle in the middle. As well as everywhere else.
