Vispute, SS, Smith, JD, LeCheminant, JD, and Hurley, KS. The effect of abdominal exercise on abdominal fat. J Strength Cond Res 25(9): 2559-2564, 2011—The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of abdominal exercises on abdominal fat. Twenty-four healthy, sedentary participants (14 men and 10 women), between 18 and 40 years, were randomly assigned to 1 of the following 2 groups: control group (CG) or abdominal exercise group (AG). Anthropometrics, body composition, and abdominal… 
Regional Fat Changes Induced by Localized Muscle Endurance Resistance Training
TLDR
The training program was effective in reducing fat mass, but this reduction was not achieved in the trained body segment, and the limited knowledge available about the plastic heterogeneity of regional body tissues when a localized resistance training program is applied is expanded.
COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN MAT, SWISS BALL AND THERABAND EXERCISES ON ABDOMINAL GIRTH
Background & Objective: Obesity refers to a condition of having excessive amount of body fat. Not only the amount of excess fat needs to be considered but where in the body it is distributed is also
Effect of Abdominal Muscle Exercises on Peak Expiratory Flow Rate in Post-Menopausal Women
TLDR
It is concluded that abdominal muscle exercises had significant improved clinically and statistically on peak expiratory flow rate in post-menopausal women.
Influence of Electro-lipolysis on Lipid Profile and Central Obesity in Obese Premenopausal Women
The current study is carried out to determine the influence of electrolipolysis on reducing central obesity and improving lipid profile in obese premenopausal women. Thirty premenopausal obese women,
Effects of exercise and Kinesio taping on abdominal recovery in women with cesarean section: a pilot randomized controlled trial
TLDR
It appears that the addition of KT to abdominal exercises in the postnatal physiotherapy program provides greater benefit for the abdominal recovery in women with cesarean section.
Exercise and BMI in Overweight and Obese Children and Adolescents: A Systematic Review and Trial Sequential Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Exercise is associated with improvements in BMI among overweight and obese children and adolescents, and changes in BMI crossed the monitoring boundary for a type 1 error in 2010, remaining stable thereafter.
The Effect of Low Frequency Non Thermal Ultrasound on Central Weight Reduction in Obese Women Postnatal
Background: Obesity can be an underlying cause of many disorders such as arthritis, lung diseases, diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart failure, cataracts, cancer and even early
Comparison of the effects of high-intensity interval running, high-intensity interval circuit training and steady-state running on body composition and glucose tolerance in recreationally active adults

TLDR
A Decalogue of global recommendations is included to achieve an adequate hydration and physical activity status to avoid overweight/obesity consequences.

Effects of Sit up Exercise Training on Adipose Cell Size and Adiposity
TLDR
The effects of a 27-day sit up exercise training program on adipose cell size and adiposity were evaluated, and repeated measures ANOVA revealed significant decreases in cell diameter at the three biopsy sites.
Adiposity, lipid levels, and brief endurance training in nonobese adolescent males.
TLDR
In nonobese adolescent males a brief period of endurance training led to reductions in body fat depots without weight change while body fat increased rapidly in the control group, and exercise training did not change lipid levels.
Anthropometric and densitometric responses of women to specific and general exercise.
TLDR
The results indicate that although either general aerobic or localized exercises are effective in altering the abdomen, hips, and thighs, there was not a significant difference between groups.
CHANGES IN WAISTLINE AND ABDOMINAL GIRTH AND SUBCUTANEOUS FAT FOLLOWING ISOMETRIC EXERCISES.
TLDR
Following a regime of six isometric abdominal contractions held for 6 sec. each, significant reductions were obtained in girth and subcutaneous fat at the waistline and the umbilical level of the abdomen.
Twice-weekly progressive resistance training decreases abdominal fat and improves insulin sensitivity in older men with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
Two sessions per week of PRT, without a concomitant weight loss diet, significantly improves insulin sensitivity and fasting glycemia and decreases abdominal fat in older men with type 2 diabetes.
Assessment of intra-abdominal and subcutaneous abdominal fat: relation between anthropometry and computed tomography.
TLDR
The amounts of intra-abdominal and subcutaneous abdominal fat could be accurately predicted from several circumferences, skinfold measurements, body mass index, and age (R2 ranged from 0.79 to 0.84); but the correlations of the circumference ratios with the areas of sub cutaneous fat were invariably lower.
Subcutaneous fat alterations resulting from an upper-body resistance training program.
TLDR
Subcutaneous fat changes resulting from resistance training varied by gender and assessment technique, supporting the notion that spot reduction does not occur as a result of resistance training.
Effects of exercise and caloric restriction on insulin resistance and cardiometabolic risk factors in older obese adults--a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Exercise alone is an effective nonpharmacological treatment strategy for insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease risk factors in older obese adults.
THE MUSCLE STRENGTH AND SIZE RESPONSE TO UPPER ARM,UNILATERAL RESISTANCE TRAINING AMONG ADULTS WHO ARE OVERWEIGHT AND OBESE
TLDR
Findings indicate the short-term relative and allometric muscle strength response to RT may be attenuated among adults who are overweight and obese.
Effect of Exercise Duration and Intensity on Weight Loss in Overweight, Sedentary Women: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
The authors recommend that sedentary adults who are overweight begin by exercising at moderate intensity for at least 150 minutes per week, when appropriate, higher exercise levels should be adopted, aiming at an hour a day as advised by the Institute of Medicine.
