You might very well have the talent to be your local Gareth Bale, but there comes a point where talent isn’t enough. Conditioning is essential to blitzing it on the pitch. Your mates on the 5-a-side team might not be able to get you in the same kind of intensive training programmes used for Premier League players, but that doesn’t mean can’t start seeing some real improvements. If you’re looking to get back to your glory days, trounce the competition, and to start loving the game that little bit more, it’s time to lose the belly.
Ask any woman - or man, for that matter - what they would like to change about their bodies and 90 percent of the time you will hear the same response: a flat stomach and a toned butt. However, if you ask those same people if they think it’s likely they will ever get the tummy and behind of their dreams, and most will respond negatively. It’s easy enough to see why - after all, both of these areas are notoriously stubborn when it comes to getting into shape. And it’s more than possible to be super fit and healthy, yet still, have a few pounds of flab floating around your midriff.
