There are some questions that just need to be answered by the experts! David from Total Heath and Fitness stopped by to answer some of our viewer's most asked questions.

"Please please tell me the best way to get rid of the after c-section belly pouch!"
  • According to David, persistence is the key! Everybody has trouble spots that they just can't seem to lose. If you keep your routine and stay consistent, eventually those problem areas will melt away.
"I would like suggestions on how to tighten my stomach."
  • David says the best way to tighten up that tummy is to work on strengthening your transverse abdominal muscles, or the muscles under the fat, first by doing isometric holds like planks. Start out slow, 20-30 seconds and work your way up. Suck your belly button to your spine to help strengthen that TVA muscle and tighten your waistline. 
"What are the best pre- and post-workout snacks, shakes etc.? What brands taste the best?"
  • Before you exercise, it's better to eat whole foods. A great snack would be a slice of whole wheat toast topped with peanut butter and green apple slices. David recommends Quest bars and meal replacement shakes available at Total Heath and Fitness. Muscle Egg drinkable egg whites is another product David recommends to get your protein in pre or post-workout.
