This is the same as the twist crunch exercise. Tilt the legs behind simultaneously with the shoulders. It is considered one of the best abdominal exercises for targeting the lower belly fat. Check out the video above for more details on how to do the exercise.

Vertical Leg Crunch

Lie flat on your yoga mat or on the floor with legs extended upwards towards the ceiling and then one knee that is crossed over the other. Breathe in slowly and then lift the upper body towards the pelvis. Breathe out slowly. Do about 12-16 crunches for two to three sets. Check out the video above on how to do the exercise.

Bicycle Exercise

You don’t have a bicycle, it’s okay you can still do this exercise. Lie on your yoga mat or on the floor and keep your hands either behind your head or by your side as you do in crunches. Lift both the legs off the ground and then bend them at the knees. Bring the right knee close to the chest, keeping the left leg out. Then take the right leg out and bring the left leg close to the chest. Alternate bending the knees as if you are using a bicycle

Rolling Plank Exercis

The rolling plank trains your body muscles around the abdomen, lower back and hip. Position yourself on your mat or on the floor with the knees as well as elbows resting on the ground. Keep the neck aligned with the spine. Look forward. Then lift the knees up and support the legs on the toes. Contract the knees and keep your breathing slowly. This is what you call the plank pose. Stay in this position for 30 seconds. Now, begin moving to and fro for about 30 seconds.

This is what you call the rolling plank exercise. Lie down on the mat or floor sideways. Support your body on right elbow and right leg. The elbow should then be perpendicular to your shoulder and your left leg should be above your right leg, making sure they are together. Keep the knees straight. The hips should also not be touching the ground. Hold this posture for about 30 seconds. Once you are comfortable, you can hold this position for about one to two minutes.

Repeat the same with the other side.

While in this posture, you can lift the leg placed on the top and bring it back again. This would make for a more effective exercise as it is not only for the abs but also for your thighs and hips.

Walking

Cardio is one of the best ways to burn your calories and lose fat from. Walking is one of the first cardio exercises you should have as it is a good and effective for burning away that belly fat. If you implement a healthy diet plus walking at a good steady pace for about 25-45 minutes four to five days every week or more, you will soon witness a good change in the weight. This low-impact exercise can increase your metabolism and heart rate. It has a decreased risk of injuries and is regarded to be an efficient workout for beginners.

Running

You have to prevent the body from getting used to workout routines that are fixed. Hence, you may need to switch occasionally. How about little running after getting comfortable with walking? It is a good effective way of keeping your heart rate up, lose calories, and reduce belly fat.

Jogging

If you are not into running or it is not your thing, try jogging. Research shows that jogging is better at breaking down the stubborn belly fat when compared with weightlifting. This is a good form of aerobic exercise that is useful for fighting fat and staying fit.
