5 Simple Exercises to Lose Belly Fat

Anyone who has worked out at least for a month will know that reducing belly fat is the hardest part. Unlike all other muscle groups, the abdomen area requires a constant amount of effort and training to really get that flat stomach. Remember, that cardio will always be needed to lose belly fat, as you cannot ‘spot reduce’ on your body. You need to bring down your overall body fat percentage. However, with that being said, mixing cardio with these simple exercises will help to lose fat but also tone your abs.

5. Crunches

Without a shadow of a doubt, crunches are the best form of exercise to burn those belly fat. In fact, it is the fastest way to reduce the belly in your abdomen area. And the best part is, it is a very simple routine that you can practically do anywhere. Just lie down on a flat surface and get to work. Start by laying down on the ground and keeping your knees bent and the feet on the ground. Place your hands beneath your head and keep them closed on the chest. Now lift your upper torso as high as you can without bending your back. Then go back to the original position. That’s one rep completed. If you are a beginner, then try doing 10 crunches a set and then improve from there.
