swimming is the best all round excersise, but cycling is probabbly best for the lower half, should think if you enjoy it though that its got to have some benefit :) your more likely to stick with something you enjoy.

If you can do crunches after any prolonged cardio you should notice some difference.

Try doing exercise in the morning before you eat breakfast, that way your body is forced to burn its fat reserves as opposed to food.

I was under the impression that its 60% diet, 40% workout.

Diet does make a massive difference, this normally includes 5-6 meals a day including protein.

When I wanted to lose weight last summer I was very strict and only had three meals a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner and I would run on the tredmill each day for 40 mins followed by light weights. I did tone a little and lost quite a bit of the belly. I lost about a stone in total so 2-4lbs a week you should aim for.

Similar to swimming, rowing is good all round exercise which I found quite beneficial when rowing regularly.

no, its 70% diet and 30% workout:p

to lose the rig around your belly, you need to get a good diet, and do some form of cardio, anything that you like.

You can target fat loss is any way, e.g doing 93433434 sits up a day wont make your lose fat off your belly.

If you do try the rowing machine, one important thing I'd say is not to race down the slide after taking a stroke...quite oftean at gyms you see people racing up and down the slide on the rowing machines and this is not the way to do it. You'll tire yourself out far faster and you'll also get poor strokes as rowing is not all about speed, it's about getting a good long stroke. Once you've reached the end of your stroke, move back down the slide more gently to give yourself a slight breather to prepare yourself for a long, hard pull. You'll find you can keep your pace for longer and with the stronger, longer strokes you'll probably be faster as well.

If the rowing machine has a distance reading then I'd use that to set targets, 1km is a good place to start and once you're good with the machiine you can do 2k sprints. For an endurance run, 5km is a good target - that's what I always rowed, 5km away from the boathouse to get warmed up then a hard run back down the 5km length.
