As per Yahoo! Health, on average, fathers are 10 pounds heavier than non-dads as they're carrying nearly an extra two inches on their waist and their bellies stick out an extra half-inch.
Here is the high intensity anti-"dad bod" workout routine for fathers out there, who'd prefer a fitter physique. Celeb trainer and Barry's Bootcamp partner Derek DeGrazio said that the new 'trend' suggests women are more attracted to the dad bod than a chiseled, Brad Pitt-like body, but his suggestion to Dads is to do his workout and lose the 10 pounds.
AdvertisementDeGrazio added that High Intensity Interval Training will help people dad bod-proofing their bodies, noting that this form of exercise is one of the most effective training methods to promote fat burning. He added that by doing this 20-minute Anti-'Dad Bod' routine three times a week, one will burn fat, will build lean muscle, will continue to burn calories for hours post-workout and will part ways with his "Dad Bod."
The routine includes four 5-minute rounds, alternating between cardio intervals on the treadmill and strength training on the floor. Each exercise on the floor should be performed for 60 seconds, reaching failure each set.
