BodyRock Daily | Ep. 8 | How Beginners Blast Love Handles

December 19, 2016 3 min read

Hey everyone out there, I get so many questions about my abs. Working out your stomach and waiting and waiting to see fat loss and definition can be really demoralizing for both men and women. Men often have an easier time of having visible muscle than women, just because women have a higher percentage of body fat on average than men. So many of you seem to think that it will take years and years to get ab definition, but the problem is actually much easier to solve than that. The problem you may be having is that you are just doing sit-ups and expecting all around changes. What you want to start trying are new and awesome alternatives to the straight sit-up.

If you want to really torch belly fat and eliminate those love handles, you need to think about workout your obliques. Watch the video for a great and easy move!!

I just started doing this new move and I really love it. The best part is, it's totally a beginner move that just gets tougher as you get more fit. As in, eventually you can hold it longer and get your legs up higher, but anyone can do it. Today I give you this move, and also show you a bit about modifying moves if you are just starting out. Most people know about how to modify a pushup but a lot of people don't, and they struggle and just give up, but I want you all to know that a modified push up is just as good, and will burn fat and will give you muscle tone.

The important thing is that you are pushing yourself to your max, even if you are modifying, and every once in a while, try doing the move without modifying to see where you are at.

The absolute best thing you can be doing for yourself is checking out our online gear store. Get a weighted vest so that whatever you are doing you are getting more work out of the time you have put aside to work out. The vest feels like nothing is on you, but believe me, your abs popping out all of a sudden after just one week of work with the vest will prove otherwise!! Finally just a word about quitting. If you try a new move and think, "oh this move is rubbish, it's too hard, or I just don't like it," I challenge you to stick with it. Don't give up on a move. Everything we tell you has a purpose: to get rid of love handles, or to blast fat from your upper thighs. We are not just telling you moves we like, we're giving you moves that work. Don't forget that every move is like learning a new skill. You cannot master it right away, or else it wouldn't be worth learning. Your body has a muscle memory, and it will adapt to a new move if you just keep going with it. Don't give in to that inner whine and give up or you will never get anywhere! ~ Lisa xx [bctt tweet="If you want to train with me sign up for www.SweatFlix.com.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 1-2 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.
