The 5 Best Ways to Lose Belly Fat

Repeat after us: "Crunches do not burn belly fat." And it's not just crunches. Neither will planks, leg throws, nor the yoga boat pose.

The 3 Exercises You Need for Sexy Forearms

You know how the saying goes: What does it profit a man if he hath a muscle-bound back but his forearms are puny?
