Question RE:Q7 and 9
"Exercise regularly, combining cardiovascular training and resistance training"
There is no proof of resistance training doing anything reduce body fat. ACSM guidlines suggest that 30 minutes of exercise at a light to moderate intensity (that is above 100bpm) 5 days a week and 2 resitance training bouts are what is nessacery to maintain physical fitness. The key thing for burning fat however is exercising for longer than 25 minutes as it takes this long for fat to be metabolised to a fuel for the energy systems to use.

as for question 9. Hyperextension is never adviced as it can cause injuries. The best way to increase back muscles is through proper sit-ups (including controlling the return) and I'd also suggest adding in some twists at the top of the sit up (right elbow to left knee and vice versa on alternate sit ups) to work the external obliques which are also important for spinal posture.
