FUPA busting exercises/workouts? - Thursday, March 11, 2010 9:13 AM
Message flagged as inappropriate!
Hi,
I'm K1DUB and I have a FUPA :( (You'd have to google it if you don't know what that is).

I've lost 55 lbs and my FUPA remains despite core training 2-3 times a week, ab work and strength training + cardio.

I typically work out with the FIRM 2 times a week, do just cardio 2 times a week and do core training + cardio 2 times a week with one rest day.

I don't belong to a gym and workout at home or by walking outdoors.  Any testimonials for workouts, regimens or DVDs would be greatly appreciated.
Just do it!

Am I alone in finding this term both disgusting and offensive?? Lower belly or pooch would have been much more appropriate!

- if it's something you have to tell us to google if we don't know what it means, then it's a term you shouldn't have used in the first place.

Well, I'm in that category too, thanks for making me feel like crap.  Your skin may go back to it's natural state after you've burned all the fat (cardio is what burns fat) or it may not.  Your next option is surgery.  I am going to have to agree it was inappropirate.

Well, I googled this and I'll tell you, I was not amused either, BUT it was the page that I found unamusing rather than what k1dub said in her post .. I think you should have used another source of wording ..

if you are serious about the weight you are carrying, I would suggest you drop the Pilates and pick up on the cardio .. cardio is going to eat the fat away, if you try to build up on the muscles now, while you're still on the big side the muscles will push the fat out and make you "look" like you are putting on weight, when in fact you are losing it ..

anyway do more pure cardio a Leslie walk dvd will do just fine 3 x a week and do your Firms 2 or 3 x a week ..

and congrats on losing the first 55lbs and cheers to losing the rest ..
w.o.w.

I looked this up and found several inappropriate definitions, but also found:

Fat Upper Pelvic Area
Fat Upper Pubic Area

I wouldn't be offended by either of the above... the others.. well, they're not really very tasteful at all. I am thinking that kddub didn't intend to be rude... but just to be sure, I think it'd be just as accurate and more tasteful to say that you carry fat in your lower abdomen and keep the potential for offense out of the picture. HTH.

in what I found unamusing was the pictures .. some-one had made a joke page up and called himself the FUPA Hunter, as I said above, it was the site page that I was upset with, not what k1dub was refering to ..

K1dub, depending on how old you are will determine if you lose that belly pooch from what I understand. Skin is less elastic, has less ability to 'snap back', the older you get. Working the abs will develop the muscles but won't do a thing for the skin.

Hi ladies and gents,

I'm kind of surprised that this post was flagged inappropriate.  My friends and I use this phrase all the time as slang and I never thought anything of it.  I never pointed anyone to a specific link and as WOW pointed out, there are several variations on the acronym breakdown.  I also didn't intend to make anyone feel bad about themselves...this post was about me after all ;)

To the PPs with suggestions, I'm about 5 lbs away from my goal weight and wondering if it'll go away during maintenance phase?  I'm willing to up my cardio but I can't get rid of Pilates for physical conditioning reasons.

Any more advice is certainly welcome!
Just do it!

K1dub,
I don't think you should get rid of your pilates.  From what I've read many who can't get rid of their belly fat any other way have results with pilates.  Most videos simply do not adequately work out your lower abdominals.  Pilates does.  And again, from what I've read, this aids in creating a "girdle" to hold in your lower belly. 


But it will be what it is right?  Better to be as fit as possible, with an imperfection or two, then to be a big blob.  There's no way any of us are going to grow older with the body we had when we were younger.  You find your own personal best right now, and know it's better than the alternative.

K1dub,
I clicked on the first link I saw, which happened to be the FUPA hunter link-my mistake.  So getting back to you, it may or may not go away.  It really depends on your skins elasticity.  If I am ever so fortunate to get to my goal weight I will be faced with the same scenerio.  Way to go on the weight loss and keep it up, even if you never do get the "dream" body you always wanted.

Denise, good to know about Travel Fit. Cathe works the lower abs A LOT in her ab segments that can be found on practically any of her dvd's. Then of course, there's Karen Voight's Great Weighted Workout, in which my abs and quads are STILL sore from the workout last Wednesday!!!!! :0 (She works the lower abs in this one too).

MRS---
I've been on the fence about Karen's Great Weighted Workout for awhile now.  But your recent posts on it are tempting me.  I like Karen as an instructor.  I have a couple of her work outs that I always think of as a light day and then end up sore the next day! I've heard GWW has a good floor section, and I like floor work.  But the clip looks pretty intense and if you're still sore a half week later, I fear I might end up in the hospital :)  I know it's an older video, does it have premixes?

RR, Karen's workout is one of very, very few that make me sore for days! I usually skip the UB, though, since her pace is super fast using weights and, IMO, the traps and shoulders are over worked. But the lower body and abs section make this dvd worth the $$ alone. Keep in mind I was using my 2# ankle weights - just imagine if I was using my 6# ankle weights!! Yowsa! :0 (I probably wouldn't be able to walk for weeks!)  The dvd has chapter points - of course, no chaptering on the VHS version. There's the: 1) warm up, 2) upper body w/ weights, 3) standing lower body w/ weights, 4) lower body (floorwork w/ ankle weights), 5) abs, and 6) stretch, I believe. The workout recommends a towel (which you really don't need), 1-3# dumbbells, ankle weights, and a small genie ball. If you do decide to get it, you could always forego the ankle weights on the floorwork until your legs get stronger. A real gem, IMO, that really shouldn't be overlooked.  It's definitely one to grow with. I mean, if it still makes me this sore after 22 years of working out, then it's pretty good in my book! :) 

I should add, here, two noticeable negatives: the background guys (that incidentally, are strangely dressed), like to stare mesmerized at Karen's butt, and you might find the music dated, but I like it (the music, not the staring at the butt, LOL!)

LOL MRS .. RR I echo MRS .. I LOVE this workout, I used to do the whole thing .. but I never use ankle weights they hurt my sciatica, that said I don't get doms with this .. I now only do the floor work of this too and it is so, so, so worth the $$ just for that alone .. one tiny hic-up that is easily overlooked, is the uneven reps .. but it's just such a good workout, it's worth it   :-)

Mrs and Slinks---

Thanks for the reviews!  SO Helpful.  I think I'm going to go for it on my next order.  I can't see myself doing it with ankle weights yet---MRS, you are so amazingly fit---but sounds like I could work up to that, or not and still get a great lower body work out.
As for the weird background guys, I'm pretty immune to that stuff, and even kind of get a kick out of it as it's something that makes it different than the last work out.   Now when I get it I'll have something to smile at through the pain.  :)
