The best exercises for burning belly fat in two weeks
Many people believe that during winter it is enough just to cover up belly fat with a baggy sweater. Others, however, are constantly attentive with their body shape and are ready at any given moment to sport a bikini as they walk along the beach. While gyms are probably the most ideal places to get exercise, they are not always the best option for those with a rigorous work or school schedule.
Luckily, there are some exercise options that can be done in your own home, particularly exercises that hone in on the abdominal area. The first of these exercises that we will go over is the vertical leg crunch.
Vertical leg crunches
Lie flat on the floor with your legs raised in the air and your hands positioned above your head. Take a deep breath. Now raise your hands and shoulders and continue to lean up. Open your legs slightly so your arms can continue forward between them.
After repeating the previous exercise for about one minute, we will move on to oblique crunches. Start by laying on a hard surface with you hands placed on your neck. Raise your upper body, then extend your right hand toward your left calf. Now go back down and repeat the same motion, only this time switching sides.
After completing four sets of ten reps on each side, we can move on to the plank exercise. Lie face down on the floor, and place your arms so that your elbows are under your shoulders, keeping your wrists in alignment. Clench your abdominal muscles and buttocks, and hold the position for as long as you can. Next, stretch your legs and try to hold the position for another minute. Now we can move on to bicycle crunches.
Lie face up on your mat. Bring your arms back so that you can place your hands behind your ears. Now bend your legs as you bring your knees toward your abdomen. Cross your left elbow over to your right knee, and then vice versa. Try to do between ten and fifteen repetitions on each side.
In the next exercise, we are going to focus again on the obliques, so lay down in the side position. Bring one hand behind your head while extending the other to the ground. Raise your body and legs at the same time, working the side abs as you bring your elbow towards your leg.
Elbow to knee
Another exercise designed to burn belly fat is the elbow to knee routine. Lay down on our back and bring your hands to your head. Raise up your legs just a few centimeters, then take turns pointing each elbow towards your knees. Repeat this movement fifteen times with each side.
Another useful technique for getting rid of belly fat is the triangle crunch. Start out by kneeling on your right knee. Bring your left leg out towards your left side while you lay your left palm on the floor and your right palm behind your head. Bing your left knee to your elbow, then return to the starting position. Repeat the exercise for one minute, alternating sides.
Windshield wipers and the hip lift
In this next exercise we are going to emulate the movement of windshield wipers. Lie on the floor and stretch your arms out to your sides. Raise your legs to form a 90-degree angle. With the help of your arms, move your legs to the right. Bring them back to the center, then move them to the left and back again. Repeat the cycle between fifteen to twenty times. Now we will move on to the hip raise.
Lay down with back facing the floor and your heels resting on a large exercise ball. Keep your hands flat on the floor. Slowly raise your hips by applying pressure to your hands and pulling the ball towards you with you feet. Now, slowly return the ball to its original position. Continue to repeat this movement. Now we have completed our routine to burn belly fat.
