I hope you mean daily crunches and other ab exercises -- sit ups add up to back pain eventually. As for the long description above, it might help you and might not. Any exercise is good exercise if you're not exercising now, but the important thing about exercise is to do what you like. Interval training is leaving a lot of injured people behind because it requires a lot of stopping and starting, which is stressful. If you're a highly experienced athlete it can be good for training, but for others it leads to muscle cramps and pulls. It just depends on the person and how young the person is. But diet is very important -- belly fat usually comes from eating too many simple carbs -- white flour, sugar, and the like -- which is why when it gets really big it's called a beer belly. Eating less of these foods can help. If you belong to a gym, a personal trainer might be able to teach you an ab regimen that will focus on your trouble spot, and also mix in some cardio. Good luck.
When you warm up before exercising that helps prevent injuries. You don't need to stretch the muscles before exercising just use lighter weights to warm the muscles. As for simple crabs that's why the Atkins or the Palo diet is good. You don't eat simple crabs! Only complex crabs.
Gym, why do you only eat stupid crabs? Easier to catch? And you do know you don't have to follow anybody's set diet to eat fewer simple carbs, especially the ones you recommend, one, Atkins, that hasn't prove out in research to product sustained weight or health and the other that is over a dozen different diets and based on faulty history. All you have to do is eat fewer simple carbs to eat fewer simple carbs. But simple crabs, well, how do you tell when a crab is simple? Ask them riddles?
Any diet that has been proved successful will only work so long as you don't go back to your original eating habits. That goes for the millions of diets proven or not. So don't knock the ones that people have found to work for them.
