Belly fat. Don’t you
just love to hate it? I actually hate saying the words 'belly fat' because they bring up images of
jiggle...and I never liked Jell-O.
It just sits there mocking you. It makes you buy bigger pants and bigger shirts.
Stomach fat makes you feel self-conscious when at the
swimming pool or beach.
It jiggles when you walk, run, laugh, or move too
Belly fat is horrible!
So what are
some belly fat exercises? What can you do from an
exercise standpoint to get rid of all that belly fat?
Do stomach exercises include lots of crunches, sit-ups, leg lifts, or some fancy (cheap) gadget found on
Do they make you work your
“core” for 30 minutes a day?
The answer to both of those questions are “no”. Belly fat exercises do not require endless amounts of crunches, or sit-ups
and you especially don’t have to waste your money on some abs gadget off a TV infomercial.
Belly fat exercises entail working your whole
They do because you cannot spot reduce. You cannot get rid of belly fat just by doing a crunch. Even if you do 1000 crunches.
You need to work lots of muscle, which means you need to do full
body abs exercises and full body workouts to really get rid of belly fat.
Some of my all-time
favorite belly fat exercises include the
Planks and Plank
Wood Chops and
Cross Body Mountain
All of those exercises work more than just your abs, and a lot of
them are bodyweight exercises. Some of them work your chest, your
back, your legs, low back and shoulders.
They not only help you
get rid of ugly belly fat, they also make your abs/core strong, which means you will have better
If you have better posture, your
stomach instantly shrinks and you’ll feel a heck of a lot better.
Let me throw those belly fat exercises into a quick workout for
you that you can try at home.
Perform this workout as a circuit, moving from one exercise to the
next with no rest. Rest for 45-60 seconds after the final
exercise and repeat the circuit a couple more times.
1A) Push-up – 10
1B) Swing – 15
Ball Jack Knifes – 15 reps
1D) Burpee – 10
You could add those abs exercises in that order to the beginning
or end of your regular workout. It all depends on you and your preference, and free-time. Some people like to do those abs exercises at the beginning of their workout, when
they’re fresh and full of energy, others like to wait till the end when they’re more fatigued and can really
feel their abs get worked.
It doesn’t matter when you do
those belly fat exercises, just do them, in addition to a full body workout and you will have less belly fat
within weeks…I guarantee it.
