Blast That Belly Fat

downloadBelly fat is one of the most common areas that people want to focus on when they work out. Losing those bellies and tightening those tummies can be tough because people often find it tough to engage their abdominal muscles during a workout as easily as they can engage their biceps of leg muscles. The abs are deep inside, and unfortunately all the crunches in the world will be wasted energy that won’t do anything if you’re not engaging and tightening those ab muscles. These exercises are designed to help you go deeper with your ab exercises in order to get results and blast away that belly fat.

 

Side Leg Lifts

Because this requires balance while you lie on your side, you can’t help but tighten your tummymuscles to hold the pose. Lie on your left side with your left arm straightened up and your head resting on it. Keep your legs straight and on top of each other. Slowly lift both of your legs off the ground and hold them in the air for a count of 5 or 10 while you hold those abs tight. Slowly lower your legs back down but stop about an inch from the floor so you don’t release your abs fully. Repeat this 10 times on each side.

 

Scissor Lifts

Lie on your back with your legs raised and pointing toward the ceiling and your arms at your sides. Make sure your back is flat and not arched, so your abs are engaged, especially your lower stomach muscles. Work to keep your back flat as you lower your right leg, keeping your left leg pointing straight up. Stop your right leg a couple inches from the ground and hold there for a few seconds before switching your legs. Lower your left and raise your right up toward the ceiling. Do a few sets of 10 of these lifts.
