FO­CUS ON FOOD

“You are what you eat. In other words, it doesn’t mat­ter how hard you’re push­ing it in the gym if you don’t put the same ef­fort into what you do in the kitchen,” says Can­non. “Ev­ery­one says you can’t out-train a bad diet and it’s true. To strip fat you need a healthy, sus­tain­able nu­tri­tion plan that works for you.”

PICK THE WEIGHTS

“You need to burn body fat to re­veal your six-pack, and your fat-loss train­ing should be fo­cused on lift­ing weights. This will help you add mus­cle mass while also forc­ing your body to burn its fat stores. There’s no way you’ll get ripped do­ing just car­dio – but some short, in­tense car­dio ses­sions can help.”

HIIT IT HARD

“I like to do some high-in­ten­sity car­dio ‘fin­ish­ers’ at the end of my weights work­out – it pushes my heart, lungs and mus­cles as hard as pos­si­ble and burns even more calo­ries. Try some sets of bat­tle ropes [pic­tured above], ket­tle­bell swings or prowler pushes and you’ll melt that belly fat away.”

STAY IN THE ZONE

“Weight train­ing for fat loss is pretty hard on both your body and mind, but you are re­ally go­ing to have to work if you want to make ma­jor changes to your body com­po­si­tion. The go­ing will get tough some­times. When it does, re­mind your­self of all the pos­i­tive rea­sons you’re do­ing this, then dig deep.”
