Let’s focus on the right workout to lose belly fat. When you do it the right way, you’ll find yourself dropping loads of fat, week after week! Before you know it you’ll trim down to that tight trim body you’ve always wanted.
How much fat your body stores is determined by two factors, diet and activity level. I know you’ve heard this before, but it’s likely that you haven’t heard about the best workout to lose belly fat for the fastest results.
First, what you eat, and when you eat, has a huge impact on your metabolism! But here we’re going to focus on the most effective workout to lose belly fat. It might seem counter-intuitive, but to lose belly fat in the most effective way, must focus on the largest muscle groups on your body, which is NOT your abdomen.
Stimulate your Muscles Deeply To maximize Fat Burning
You must exercise your muscles deeply, more than simple cardio, to rev your metabolism where it will burn fat long after your workout.
Workout to Lose Belly Fat – Simple Exercises are the Most Effective
1. Squats with Dumbbells or Barbell – This is one of the best exercises you can do to sculpt beautifully toned, firm legs and butt that both men and women desire the most! It also works the largest group of muscles on your body, so you will maximize fat burning with this exercise alone! Do 12-15 reps. Squeeze those muscles on the way up! Alternate sets with your feet at shoulder-width, then at 1-1/2 shoulder-width apart.
2. Push-Ups – This is a fantastic exercise for developing shapely, lean arms and shoulders. It works wonderfully for both men and women strive for. It’s alright if you can’t do a full push-up, but you should try to work up to it. In the meanwhile, make them easier by doing them on your knees, or leaning against a wall while standing, or do them while leaning on the stairs. Do whatever you have to do, to be able to do them! Do 12-15 reps. Squeeze those muscles on the way up! Alternate the width of your hands for each set, shoulder-width apart, then hands together (thumbs almost touching), then hands at 1-1/2 shoulder-width apart. Eventually, for each set, do push-ups until you can’t do anymore. This will race your fat-burning metabolism, and greatly tone your upper body!
3. Hammer Curl with Dumbbells – An awesome exercise for developing the brachial/extensor muscles on the inside of the forearms, that are very sexy on both men and women. With palms facing your body. Keep your elbows pointing to the floor, and don’t rock. Contract your stomach muscles to support your posture throughout. Slowly curl the dumbbells up to your shoulders. Tense your biceps and forearms all the way, while exhaling. Slowly return to the start position, while inhaling. Do 12-15 reps. If you want, alternate the positioning of your palms for each set, palms facing your body, or palms facing forward, which concentrates on your biceps.
4. Standing Calf Raise – This is a wonderful exercise for creating beautifully sculpted and sexy calves, again for both men and women! Standing, with dumbbells or a barbell. Use a 3-inch thick platform (like a board), with your heels off the board and knees slightly bent. Lower your heels toward the floor and stretch your calves. Slowly, come up onto your tiptoes, pushing as high up as possible. Squeeze your calves as hard as you can, and hold for a second. Slowly return down to the stretch position. Go SLOW, and focus on stretching your calve muscles. Do 12-15 reps. If you find it difficult to balance, exercise one leg at a time, or hold onto something as you do it.
Good Job! One Circuit Complete!
Now you’ve just completed one circuit, that is one set of all exercises. Do three circuits and your workout to lose belly fat will be complete!
Go easy at first, with little or no weights, until your muscles acclimate to your new routine. It’s likely you’ll become sore after the first workout or two. If you do, then don’t workout again until your muscles fully heal from their soreness. After that, add enough weight to make it challenging, but not so much that you lose your posture.
Do your routine three times a week (ex. M,W,F), and if you find it hard to work it into your schedule, just break it up! Try doing a quick set every time your TV show goes to commercial break. This makes it fun. Or do just one circuit before going off to work and maybe a circuit or two just before dinner? It’ll only takes a few minutes here and there, but you’ll still get it done!
Eat a moderate diet, and you’ll see impressive results very quickly! This is the right workout to lose belly fat for both men and women.
