 Lose Belly FatBelly fat is a huge problem for most people. Everyone with a muffin top is in a perpetual search for finding was to get rid of it. If you are one among them, I welcome you here because I am going to tell you about a few moves that will help you lose belly fat.

You might now say that spot reduction is a myth. I agree with you! You simply can’t reduce fat from a particular part of your body by exercising. However, research says that high intensity interval training (HIIT) is more effective than plain cardio in getting rid of belly fat. HIIT will also strengthen the body’s core muscles that help in creating flatter abs that are more drawn in. This improves posture and makes your waistline slimmer and sexier.

Here are a few moves that will help you in getting rid of stubborn belly fat. The best part is that you can finish the set of exercises in flat 15 minutes and don’t require any equipment.

You need to do as many reps as possible of each exercise. Follow the order and don’t rest in between. The circuit needs to be repeated 3 times in total. If you have joints related issues, Please consult your doctor before attempting these.

  1. Hi Vinitha
    I am Anjanaa a sports and conditioning therapist by profession. I read your great blog about hiit. You have suggested some nice body weight exercises . It would be nice if you could add a small section of dos and donts so that readers know wher to focus their attention while exercising, when to stop and what to avoid. I would like to suggest a few additions
    1. Starting hiit depends on your present activity level. For a sedentary and amateaur person hiit may increase the injury risk. Better to work your way up the cardio ladder and then alternate hiit to boost up the metabolism and core strength.
    2. Always focus on landing as that greatly increases your chances of getting knee injuries. land on the forefoot keeping your core engaged. keep the knees aligned over the 2nd and the 3rd toes and make sure that they dont cross the toes.
    HAPPY EXERCISING
