If you eat a proper diet yes, but if you out to lose weight cardio and lifting is what you need to do, not one or the other.

Also it sounds like you are trying to lose belly fat, spot training doesn't work or exist for that matter, your body will lose fat as a whole, the last place you begin to lose fat is your belly area, so doing 200 crunches or sit-ups a day will not cause you belly fat to go away (it might make it bigger, compiling fat with muscle)

If you are eating a healthy 3 meals a day and joggin 30minsdoin 300 crunches and 50 squats a day How long would It take you to lose 25lbsI am 140 right now 15 years old and 5'4''?

Well I would take out the squats because squats are not good for fat thighs. Doing crunches and sit ups will loose weight a lot faster. When you will do crunches you will notice the difference daily. and crunches is not more of losing weight but tightening,which may be perhaps what you actually need sometimes when you tighten/flatten the stomach you will come to realize that's all you actually needed.

How many calories do 50 squats burn?

It's very difficult to determine how many calories are burned during any weight lifting activity because there are so many variables. It depends on how much you weigh, if you're using extra weight, how long it takes you to do 50 repetitions, and how long you rest between each rep. Also, weight lifting exercises like squats are not normally used to burn calories, because aerobic exercise is the best if you're concerned about how many calories you're burning.

How many squats should a female do daily for a bigger butt and how long until she sees actual results?

You could do a series of squats several times per day, gradually increasing the number of squats in each interval (say 10, then 15, then 20) and the frequency of each interval. Even if you regularly do squats, depending on your genetics, you may not ever get the size butt you want... but, squats will certainly help!


What is the best workout plan for a 13-year old boy?

If you have a big stomach and want more muscle, start doing sit-ups and crunches and push-ups. DO NOT start weight lifting too young because you may injure yourself. HAVE FUN! What if you don't have a big stomach? and im not really strong i could even say im weak i cant do push ups easily.I know because i am 13 and weight train. This year I've probably grow 3 inches so far making me about 5'8ish. As long if u use good form and don't overdue the wait you'll be fine.I'm 12 and I used to be an ordinary boy with normal stomach and muscles now i have toned muscles and almost and 8 pack. I lift 10 kgs 15 reps with 5 sets. I do 150 sit ups at night and 150 in the morning 75 by 75. This took me 3 weeks.Weightlifting with good form is not only good for young adults bodies, it is good for their self image. At 13, stick with basic movements and larger muscle groups. Squats (barbell or dumbell), deadlift, barbell curls, french press, shoulder press, flat bench press, pull ups, dips, and crunches will give the most bang for your beginning buck. Just make sure you are familiar with and use proper form for each exercise. For basics, 10 reps/3 sets of each (after 3 months, go to 4 sets each). Each rep is 2 seconds up/2 seconds down. When 10 reps become easy, up the weight. Dips, pull ups and crunches are a max effort each set for 3 sets. Enjoy your growth.I am 13 and I have a 6 pack or 8 pack or whatever you call it. Every day I do 100 push-ups 100 squats and about 50 handstands, plus up to 300 other exercises. I dunno which of the stunting growth teams has it right, I don't weight train. But have fun.I'm 13, and i have been working out for 2 years. And I'm 6 feet tall. I squat 195 (max) and do 135 regulary. And i bench 120 (max) and do 90 regulary. But a good workout plan is to do lunges in into jumps to boost your jumping ability. Run 15 yards 20 times for good endurance (take 2 minute breaks in between running). If you have weights try benching around 10 on each side. And try squatting at least 25 on each side. EAT OFTEN AND HEALTHY! But do not eat right b4 a workout. Wait about 10 to 15 min.I am 13 year old im 37 kilos for 1meter 48 centimeter i have a little little fat and i want muscle i searched a lot on internet so now this is my workout.

The problem about your muscles when you lift is... yeah you get stronger but your muscles have no endurance what so ever. What I mean by endurance is... In my gym class... by the way I'm 15, i have two guys who are very muscular and they are on the football team. I, on the other hand..... a person who is a long distance runner, soccer player and a swimmer. I don't have fat and i do have 6 pack and muscles. Well let's get back about my gym class and the muscle endurance. So we had push up and sit-ups and running tests. I did more than they did .... push-ups 68 one of them did 45 the other 54. sit-ups 78... they did 65,58. I'm a good runner my mile time is 5:23 so I obviously did better than they did. I never lifted in my life except I just started and I'm NOT lifting big weights. I still need endurance for my muscles so i lift only 15 pounds and i just do them in sets of ten total of 50. I know that i curl ( on the machine ) 120 and can probably bench 130 something. What you should do every day is ................................... 2 sets of sit-ups on a minute each. Time yourself... do as much sit-ups (crunches) as you can in one minute you should feel the burn in your stomach. Rest 30 seconds and start the second one. after your crunches 1 minute rest and you should start push-up sets. you want to do as max as you can. You do 10 fast push ups. 10 seconds rest. 10 slow push ups. 10 seconds rest and you go until you can't do any more. so it's sets of 10 and 10 seconds rest in between each set of 10. Rest about 4 to 6 minutes. And do 20 push ups of other kinds each ( look online for different types of push- ups ), one of them is dimond push- up or the clap- push up. you increase your push ups each time you feel you can do more... make a schedule and increase gradually by five.I AM 12 and i have 6 pack i did 90 crunchese/situps everyday 30 30 30 with 15 sec break between each 30.I'm 14 years of age, and even though your not seeing a sudden results even after many months it's because your body will adjust. What I mean by adjust is: your body after a while already knows what it's going to do, therefore the exercise is not pushing your muscles to do more so no results. Try to switch up the routine sometime. Also: Carry wood chunks 1/4 of a full piece of oak is also good. My exercise is an ordinary sloped hill, and carry 50 pieces from the bottom to the top. then bring them all down again. For me my muscels aren't busting through the shirt. But I notice that I can lift way more than a guy who lifts all the time. Hope this helps!

There is really no age that is too young. As long as you learn how to do it correctly and are supervised, squats are not very dangerous. They have so many benefits that it doesn't make sense not to start early.

Doing crunches does not make you skinny. Eating less calories than you burn and being active (cardio exercise) will make you skinny.


How many crunches should a 12 year old kid do ev ery day to lose weight?

Diet and exercise are both good ways to lose weight, but something like crunches probably aren't the best idea to lose weight without some type of cardio. If you just want to lose weight, I would suggest at least 10 or 15 minutes of cardio exercise a day, whether it be running, doing jumping jacks, whatever.. As long as it gets your heart pumping. In the lines of crunches, if you are specifically trying to target your stomach and midsection, do as many crunches as you can until it starts to burn, and then do about half as many more. If you don't feel the burn, you're not helping yourself any (no pain, no gain - right?). Don't just do straight crunches, either, try situps, and even pushups if possible to work more of your torso. Every person is different, so I can't say whether or not crunches will even help, at 12, your body may not be ready for muscle development, so you won't have a 6 pack, but anything that burns calories will help you lose weight. Just eat healthy, and do a good amount of cardio. Try doing some crunches before AND after as a warm up and a cool down. Oh and don't forget to stretch! It sounds silly, but you will be happy in the morning when you aren't half as sore as you could have been!

I do about 400 crunches a night and 100 in the morning. Will I lose weight that way?

The short answer is yes you will, but its not safe and it will take a long time. Try adopting a more rounded weight loss plan. Say, walk 30 minutes everyday, reduce your calorie intake. To this you could add crunches everyday, but perhaps 50 at night and 50 in the morning - but not the 500 a day. Assuming you're an adult. If you're younger then its best you speak to your gym coach etc.
