Over the festive and holiday season, it’s natural to relax, have fun, and be jolly. However, some of us may have got just a little bit too jolly. If you’ve indulged in too much turkey and delectable desserts and your jeans aren’t thanking you for it, it might be time to consider exercising. If you’re strapped for time, but you want to burn stomach fat fast, consider any of these five exercises below.
Crunches aren’t as bad as they sound – and they most certainly don’t make you “crunch.” However, they are one of the best stomach fat burning exercises you can do at home for a reason. They work. You just need to lie on your floor, bend your knees and keep your feet flat on the ground. Put your hands behind your head or crossed on your chest and lift your torso. As you raise your upper torso, you will begin to feel a burning sensation around your abdomen area and this an indication that your body is working hard.
Complete two or three sets of 10 per day and be sure to let all your effort go into your abdomen opposed to your neck or head. You can also try other variations such as a butterfly crunch, shoulder press with side crunch, and a crossover crunch with dumbbells.
While this fat-burning exercise is called Bicycle, it doesn’t involve one! A bicycle exercise involves you lying on the ground with your hands behind your head. You then lift your legs, bending your knees and begin “pedaling” as you would on a cycle – e.g., your left knee forward and your right knee away followed by your right knee forward and your left knee away. The repetitive motion is beneficial for fat burning around your abdomen.
