The Best Exercises to Lose Belly Fat

What are the best exercises to lose belly fat quickly and effortlessly? In case you are wondering, it isn’t hundreds of sit ups. It is…a variety of exercises that fire the various muscles of your abs. Although you need to eat a low fat and low sugar diet, working off the flab is the best way to help tighten those abs.

You cannot spot reduce, so your exercise routine should workout the whole body, and not just your core. Getting a great body and getting rid of abdominal fat requires a consistent approach to your diet and exercise. It means putting your body first and your temptations and laziness to avoid exercising last. Change the way you eat first and foremost and then focus on the workouts.

So here are the best exercises to do for your abs:

1. traditional crunch – lie on your back, knees bent and both hands clasped loosely behind your head. Imagine an apple under your chin – you need to keep the space between your chin and your chest. Slowly curl shoulders away from floor, pulling in your tummy and exhaling at the top of the lift. Now hold position for 5 seconds. From the held position, pulse up 5 times and then slowly curl back down. Repeat ten times.

2. reverse crunch – lie on your back, knees bent at a right angle in the air, and both handsby your side, upper body relaxed. Now pulling tummy in, slowly bring your knees towards your chest, lifting hips away from floor. Hold for one second and then roll back down. Repeat for 2 sets of ten.

3. oblique crunch – lie on your back, knees bent and both hands clasped loosely behind your head. Imagine an apple under your chin – you need to keep the space between your chin and your chest. Slowly roll your legs with knees still bent to one side until legs on floor. This is your starting position. Now complete a crunch by tightening stomach and curling shoulders away from floor and holding for 2 seconds (exhale on the lift) and then lowering slowly down. Do two sets of ten, and then one set of pulsing ones – so from the stop of the curl position, you hold and then pulse up ten times before lowering back down.

These are the foundation for your ab sessions, and other exercises to add would include: crunches on a swiss ball, plank position, bicycle, single leg stretch, double leg stretch, criss cross and the pilates 100. You should either consult a fitness expert at a gym to show you these exercises or you should get a specialist ab training video.

If you want to cheat, buy a toning belt, but you need to wear these at least 30 mins a day before you see any results. When it comes to really flattening the tummy, pilates and yoga based exercises are the best, as are crunches on a swiss ball. Sit ups and crunches will give you the tone of a six pack, but the others will help to really pull your muscles in. Ask an instructor to show you these exercises and they can show you how to do them correctly and maintain your form at the same time.

If you like to have a vigorous workout or play sports, nothing is better than martial arts to train your body and give you sexy abs. Finally, keep it interesting by doing lots of various activities so that you dont get bored. Keep it up and you will have great abs in no time at all.
