You can find a way to reduce belly fat and chest fat just by cutting back on the amount of calories you eat. I’m sure you’ve heard this before but keep repeating it. There is no magical solution to losing weight. You have to be willing to change your lifestyle if you want to reduce weight and burn belly fat, particularly in the stomach area. Here’s how:
Get moving. Increasing physical activity can significantly reduce belly fat, especially when combined with diet and exercise. Try combining your daily exercises, which should be low impact, with some cardiovascular exercise, both low and high intensity, both aerobic and anaerobic, which have both been shown to assist reduce belly fat (and chest fat, for men). If you prefer weight training, there are a number of exercises that will stimulate the muscles in the abs. Try different variations of leg raises, squats, lunges, etc.
Core exercises. These are exercises that help you use your core muscles (back and abdominal) during movement. The best ones are the ones that involve balancing on an exercise ball or a stability ball, or using other stabilizing devices that require the same muscles. These types of exercises are a great way to reduce belly fat because they work the muscles that have become tight as you age and build those muscles so they will work more effectively when they’re used again.
Vertical Leg Holds. There are two types of exercises to reduce belly fat with twist routines. The first is called the vertical leg hold, which is similar to the regular sit-up but you have to arch your back, while holding onto your toes. Hold your position on one leg for three seconds. Repeat for as many times as you can.
Push Ups. This is an excellent workout because it will work your chest muscles as well. Stand with feet hip distance apart, and place your hands on your hips. Then take a push up, placing your hands directly underneath your chest. Next, raise your legs straight out, and twist your torso 90 degrees, pulling your shoulder down toward your feet. Make sure your chest touches the floor before you release the stretch.
Yoga. This type of exercise has been around for centuries, and it is a great way to both lose belly fat, and improve your health overall. Begin your yoga routine by lying on your back. Next, lift your legs, keeping them straight without relaxing your arms. In addition to cardiovascular workouts, yoga can also help you with strengthening core muscles, because it works the muscles that control your weight.
Running. Running is an excellent fat-burning exercise, because it uses a lot of your body’s calories to get you moving. However, running can make your stomach feel full, so you may want to consider adding some light cardio exercise to your routine. Adding some brisk walks to your runs can also help you lose extra belly fat, and can help you keep your metabolism running smoothly all day.
You should combine these three exercises with a healthy diet to burn extra belly fat all day long. A healthy diet that is rich in foods that are high in antioxidants can help protect your heart and reduce your risk of developing heart disease. Additionally, your core muscles will be strengthened through these exercises, which will make it easier for you to get a tight, toned stomach. And finally, you’ll be able to keep your heart healthy and reduce your risk of developing life threatening heart problems. You should consider incorporating these core muscle exercises into your exercise routine, along with a healthy diet, and you’ll be glad you did!
