Q) Hey Akash, I have a Skinny Fat body type. Can you suggest some diet and workout tips to help me lose fat from my stomach and thighs? Thanks a ton:) Please find my picture attached.
Note: I have not shown the picture here on request of the girl asking this question.
A) Hey. Thanks for your question.
Know this: There is absolutely no difference in the diet and workout protocol for men and women. 100% of protocols are the same.
Having said that, ladies do tend to shy away from weights and [barbell squat/deadlifts] are the last thing on their mind.
They tend to ‘spend’ most of their time on leg machines like adduction/abduction, leg press, leg extension/curls and so forth.
If you know about me and my work, I swear by barbell squat, sumo deadlifts/trap bar deadlifts and consider a workout routine incomplete without these exercises. These exercises, in my opinion, contribute easily more than 50% of the potential results you can except.
Now emphatically speaking, I don’t understand that a lot of people are NOT keen on these compound lifts and prefer to do something a bit less intimidating. At the same time, there are individuals with back, knee issues who simply cannot do the movements in question.
For them I suggest the following exercise replacements:
-Single Leg Squat
