Exercise and Fitness

Chin and neck

02/28/2002

Question:

Is there any facial exercises that can help get rid of fat below the chin and in the neck? Thanks.

Answer:

Reduction in body fat, no matter where it is on the body, requires aerobic-type activities. Examples of such activities include walking, cycling, and swimming. The American College of Sports Medicine recommend the following quantity and quality of exercise for developing and maintaining cardiorespiratory fitness in health adults. Frequency of training: 3-5 days/week. Intensity of training: 55/65-90% of maximum heart rate with the lower intensities for individuals who are quite unfit. Duration of training: 20-60 minutes of continuous or intermittent (minimum of 10-minute bouts accumulated throughout the day) aerobic activity. Moderate intensity activity of longer duration is recommended for adults not training for athletic competition.
