Exercises to Burn Belly Fat

While there is no magic trick to lose belly fat, there are exercises that will quickly put you into the right track to losing your belly fat permanently. This article will feature secrets in getting flat abs (or six pack abs) and lean stomach.

The first and most important thing to do, in order to take control right a way and start getting rid of the stubborn belly fat, is cleaning up your diet. Exercise is excellent, but your diet is supreme when it comes to losing body fat. Before you can see your tight flat abs, you need to have low body fat percentage. After all, the definition in your abs only comes from losing body fat.

Fitness experts are now focusing on new exercises to burn belly fat and get you a lean body. This might surprise you but the new approach is high intensity workouts with short rest periods that work the large muscle groups, instead of small muscles like the biceps, triceps, and calves. Many fitness gyms agree to this already.

If you always spend much of your time focusing on abs exercises to try to rid the belly fat, perhaps it’s time to reconsider, since the abdominal muscles are only small muscle group. Crunches and situps are only good when you already have a well-conditioned body and you want muscle tone in your abdomen to get six pack abs or tight flat stomach. If fact, you’ll need not just crunches and situps to get it, but resistance training as well. Resistance strengthens your muscles.

When it comes to training the abs, in order to get real results, you’ll have to forget about the crunches for a while, because they only provide the least amount of resistance since they only target a small group of muscles – the abs, and contribute less in burning belly fat. Instead, center your attention on working the whole body in order to get the best metabolic response. Your workout must stimulate the fat burning hormones in your body. And this can be done if you focus on training large muscle groups like the legs, back, and chest. This will increase your metabolic rate that will get you a lean body.

Among the most effective high intensity training are:

  • kettlebell exercises
  • renegade dumbbell rows
  • front squat
  • deadlifts
  • lunges
  • step-ups
  • clean and press
  • mountain climbers
  • running

These exercises will burn belly fat quicker than concentrating much on training the abs directly.

But always note that your diet plays a major role in losing belly fat and getting a lean body. And the best diet is still natural food like

  • avocados
  • nuts (walnuts, almonds, brazil nuts, pecans, etc.)
  • eggs
  • whole grain
  • oats
  • fish
  • grass-fed beef
  • coconut milk
  • fruits and vegetables

…and there are a lot more. Try to avoid processed foods as much as possible, because they can shatter your metabolism. It’s the over processing of foods that make them unhealthy. You should avoid these if you want to stand a chance of getting a lean body and tight flat stomach.

Always remember that health is the thing that makes you feel that now is the best time of the year.

Good information here. Studies show that without proper nutrition, diet and exercise your body will age much faster than it should. So, when your 40, you will look 50, and when your 50, you will look 60 and so on. Do you really want that? I don’t think so.

Thanks. Yes, one should go for it after a busy day. A good 15-20 minutes of exercise after a stressful day would be highly beneficial.
