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… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

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
TLDR
The study was conducted to study the comparative effect of 5week training program between Mat, Swiss ball and theraband exercises on abdominal girth and skin fold thickness.
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
TLDR
The results of this study testified that the combination of electrolipolysisis and low-calorie diet characterized by a higher efficiency than a lowCalorie diet alone on reducing central obesity and improving lipid profile in 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.

TLDR
The purpose of this review is to present the current state of knowledge on this topic in a clear and accessible manner, primarily addressed to those professionally involved in or interested in bodybuilding.
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
TLDR
There was a significant effect of low frequency non thermal ultrasound on central weight reduction in obese women postnatal, and group A that received low frequencyNon thermal ultrasound had statistically higher significant decrease in waist circumference and body mass index.
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
The purpose of this study was to investigate and compare the effects of eight weeks of high- intensity interval running (HIRT), high-intensity interval circuit training (HICT) and steady-state endurance running (SSE) on body composition and glucose tolerance.
Artículo especial Physical activity, hydration and health
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.
Muscle Strength Training and Weight Loss from a Combined Isometric Exercise and Dietary Program
While many studies have examined the effect of diet and dynamic exercise on muscle strength and weight loss, none have examined a combined isometric exercise and diet program. Isometric exercise is
