Without an ounce of belly fat on his body, we bet boxer Alex Brenes is a pretty good guy to ask for advice to get rid of it!

FitPerez reader Anna is trying to lose weight and asked the accomplished welterweight boxer for the best exercises to lose belly fat, writing:

Hi Alex,

I have a large fatty "pooch" on my lower belly. It's really annoying. I am very overweight and am trying my way to weight loss and healthier lifestyle. My question is what exercises are the best for losing the belly fat and "pooch"?

Great question! Here's what Alex has to say:

Dear Anna,

The lower abdominals, especially in women, are one of the hardest areas to work. It's better to work the fatty deposits when your body temperature is up, incorporating a series of 20 or 30 reps of ab exercises into an interval training plan, for example:

Start with a 5 minute warm up, jog, walk, stairs, etc, to heat up your body & break a sweat, then 1 minute of jumping jacks followed by 30 ab exercises, laying on your back with your feet towards the sky, put your hands under your butt, loweryour legs to the floor & raise up again, keeping your legs straight without touching the ground, keep your upper body stationary-do 4 or 5 sets. You can substitute the jumping jacks with 2 minutes of jumping rope, 3 minutes jogging (brisk) or 1 minute up & down stairs, choose exercises that you feel comfortable with pushing yourself to the limit. Raise the intensity of the exercises as your fitness level improves.

Come down to DeLaBBC & we'll show you how it's done.

Eminem Returns To The Big Screen For 8 Mile 2 Southpaw

Filed under: Film FlickersEminem

eminem returns to the big screen

After quite the hiatus from the big screen aside from Funny People, Eminem wants to be in pictures again!

The 8 Mile star will take the lead in Dreamworks' The Fighter Southpaw, a boxing movie in which Em will play a welterweight boxer who "must overcome tragedy while fighting for the title."

According to screenwriter Kurt Sutter, the film will draw from themes in Eminem's album Recovery.

Here's what Sutter had to say about it:

"He shared so much of his personal struggle in this raw and very honest album, one that I connected with on a lot of levels. He is very interested in the boxing genre, and it seemed like an apt metaphor, because his own life has been a brawl. In a way, this is a continuation of the 8 Mile story, but rather than a literal biography, we are doing a metaphorical narrative of the second chapter of his life."

Em has certainly been impressing the world with his music, lately. Guess we'll see if he can do the same with his acting.

Do U think Eminem should return to acting?
