So ya dig sports but need some help with your game? Don't understand some of the rules of football, basketball or hockey? Got a gripe about P.E. class, skateboarders, cheerleading, coaches, or anything? Why not ?


Hey Coach,

I am 15 and I am tired of having a small gut on me and I know I am still growing but I want to know if there is any excercises I can try, besides sit ups, that would firm and sculp my abs?

Hey casemanbr31

Situps or any other ab exercises will not get rid of body fat and give you a washboard stomach like Usher or Gwen Stefani. Ab exercises are just one step on the road to getting a sweet six pack, which includes the following:

  • Regular Cardio Exercise - If you're just beginning regular cardio workouts, start out slowly and work up to a more intense pace. For more info on cardio workouts, click here.
  • Stength Training - Strength training one to three times a week helps to reduce body fat. Start out slowly and make sure you learn proper lifting and strength training techniques. For more info on strength training, click here.
  • Healthy Diet - Click here to find out more about eating right.
  • Abdominal Exercises - Abdominal exercises only need to be part of your overall workout to achieve a totally toned tummy. Overworking your abs can damage your muscles so limit your ab workouts to two or three times a week. If you don't like doing full sit ups, try doing crunches, which can be as effective, if done properly. Talk to your P.E. teacher about proper techniques.

Keep in mind that there's not necessarily anything wrong with having a "small gut" on you - especially when you're a 15 year-old going through puberty. Your body goes through many changes at this age, including weight gain and body fat, which doesn't mean you're unhealty. Also remember that firm and sculpted abs won't happen overnight. It takes a well-rounded program, a healthy diet and dedication.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
