Do at least twenty sit ups a day.

It is imposible to lose 50lbs of stomach fat in two weeks, no matter how many sit-ups you do.

You cannot do sit ups and expect to lose weight. You can do as many as you want and you will not lose a pound. Sit ups are for toning, and who cares how hard your abs are if it's covered by fat? Do regular exercise-cardio and strength training- and eat healthy.

All you have to do is do some squatches(sit-ups) . This will make you crunch your spine so the belly flab overlaps. This will make you lose weight faster.

dude just do sit ups and curl ups everyday for like 6 months and you will be great

To lose your belly fat, it is best to do stretches, running, curl-ups and a good diet of fat-free sugar-free and wheat-free foods. To lose the leg fat it is best to jog, walk, run, do squats, sit -ups and dances.

It depends on diet. Just doing sit ups may not reduce your stomach at all. The muscle under the fat may just make your waist bigger. You have to have a sensible diet and aerobic exercise to lose inches off your belly.

You can burn approximately 57 calories by doing 100 sit ups in 10 minutes. You must burn 3,500 calories to lose a pound. This translates to approximately 6,140 sit-ups per pound lost.

Sit ups do not burn stomach fat. Sit ups build and tone stomach muscles.

You will need to do about 20 thousand sit ups in order to lose 10 pounds. This is if you do at least 1 thousand sit ups at a time.

Sit ups don't make you lose weight, cardio exercise does. Cardio exercise is the best body fat burning exercise. For more information about how to do it correctly, see the page links, further down this page, listed under Related Questions.

Some good exercises to build muscle and lose body fat include bench presses, pull ups and sit ups. Other good exercises are abdominal crunches and squats.

To lose fat you must work on the whole body unfortunately you cant spot reduce when it comes to fat but for the answer to the question you would need to do 1000 situps a day to lose one pound of fat not counting what you took in that day.

For a kid you mostly eat healthy food and for every night do about 10 sit-ups.

To lose one pound of fat, you have to burn about 3500 calories. Situps burn about 430 calories an hour is your weight is 130 pounds, and about 560 calories and hour if you weigh around 155 pounds. Going by these figures, it will take approximately eight hours of doing sit-ups to lost one pound of fat. As you can see by this example, the mount of time it would take doing sit-ups to lose one pound of fat will vary from person to person depending on their weight.

No. Your breasts consist of mainly fat. Crunches hardly burn any fat.


you dont need to do sit ups, you just need to get of the fat that is masking it

The number of sit-ups completed does not have a correlation to the amount of weight lost. Weight may actually be gained as muscle is built, because muscle weighs more than fat.

Do curls , sit ups ,crunches ,push ups ,pull ups or you can run ounce everyday. If you do the muscle building exercises do them every other day. It is not good to do them two days in a row.

With excerise (ex. Push-ups, Sit-ups, running)

trees no not trees ! its riding a bike sit ups about 50 a day
