Got a Big Fat Belly? It’s More Than Just Genetics

Your bum’s too big, your arms are puny and your belly’s bulging; in life, there’s always going to aspects of your body that you’re not happy with. Most of these things are easy to change, however, if you’re an adult you can’t make yourself taller, change your body type or make your shoulders wider. Accept the fact that some aspects of yourself you can never change, and instead focus on the things you can change, like losing the belly or putting some muscle on to your arms.

Genetics Are Not To Blame

Many people try to use genetics as a lame excuse for not having the body they want. For example, if your stomach is a problem area, it is easy to blame your parents by saying it was a problem for them too and so you ignore the problem. This is not an excuse. It is exactly what you shouldn’t do. Instead, begin your workout targeting these problem areas, spend longer, and be more intense in your training.

Are You Just A Quitter?

Research has shown that many people such as yourself are simply quitting and moving on to other exercises to train other muscle groups where results come quickly and easily. Be persistent and keep training your problem areas, accept the fact that the gains may be slower and smaller than in other parts of your body. Seek guidance from the professional trainers in your gym to help improve your training program to hit those muscle groups that are troubling you, and remember to stick to your limits and don’t over-train, it will only inhibit your results.

The Solution To Your Problems

However, as I mentioned before there are some things that you can not change about your body. Most men want to have broad shoulders, but if you were born with narrow shoulders there’s not much you can do about it. But you can train in certain ways to create the impression that your shoulders are broader than they actually are, by proportioning your body appropriately. Work out your abs and do extra cardio to give yourself a lean, toned stomach, and build up your shoulders and your lats to give your body the sought-after V shape. This will give the impression that your shoulders are nice and broad.

If your problem is too much fat on a particular area of your body then the solution is easy and there is no blaming your genetics here. You are going to have to cut down on your calories and do a lot more cardiovascular exercise. You will have to work hard, and you may feel like quitting, but the final results will be well worth it.

Stop blaming your genetics, it’s an easy excuse, but it’s not the real reason you don’t have the body you want. Of course some things you can’t change, like your height, but there is absolutely nothing stopping you from toning up, building muscle, and losing weight. If you stick to and follow a proven training and nutrition program you cannot fail. The question is, “How much do you want it?”
