I need your help!
As a part of getting my life on track and becoming healthy in my mind, spirit, and body, I'm starting to go to the gym and work out regularly. I'm not fat by any means, but I could afford to lose a couple of pounds, mainly in my mid-section (my stomach, sides, and back). I'm trying to eat healthier (for Lent, I gave up the cookies I used to get once or twice a day from the dining hall) and I want to work out, aiming specifically at my mid-section.
I know the typical crunches and planking that I can do to burn fat and increase muscle in my core, but are there other things I can do? We have an amazing rec center on campus and it's absolutely free for me to use almost 24/7 so I want to take advantage of it. The thing is, I just don't know where to start. I've never gone to a gym regularly for working out, so I don't know what I can take advantage of to start burning belly fat.
Any suggestions or helpful hints are more than welcome! Thanks a ton :)
