Introducing Our Health and Wellness Expansion: Fat Fighter Tips

Be sure to log onto the Southern Plastic Surgery blog regularly as we continue to add “fat fighter tips” for quick, effective ways to improve your appearance by living a healthier, more active life!  We also invite our patients and fans to join us on Facebook and Twitter to receive up-to-the-second health and wellness updates.

Fat fighter tips to keep you trim: Vary your workouts- Your body’s metabolism adjusts to repeat exercise routines so what was a challenge a few months ago may not work muscle groups past their current limits as effectively as new routines.

A good way to build more lean muscle tissue is to engage in contrast training*:  do your regular strength training routine (i.e.- 20 reps of bicep curls with light weight dumbbells) followed by a powerful series of movements that work the same muscle group (i.e.- 20 push-up’s).  By varying your movements, your body and your mind will have less of an opportunity to become complacent.
