How to lose weight around the stomach?
Believe it or not, your belly fat says more about your health than you know! In pursuit of getting rid of belly fat, many people turn to exercise to help them get rid of stubborn fat. However, it doesn’t work all the time. Aminder Singh says, “There is no specific activity to eliminate belly fat. Though it is possible, only via strength training. However, there are certain ways you can lose belly fat”
4 ways to help you lose weight:
1. You should have a clear aim
The first step will be to establish a clear aim for the specific fat you want to eliminate and the motivation for doing so. For example, if you wish to shrink your midsection or abdominal fat, you should understand why you desire to do so. It will help you achieve your goals.
2. Train larger muscle groups
Secondly, it is beneficial to train multi-joint moments or larger muscle groups, as they will help you burn more calories. You can go for squats, deadlifts, chest press, leg pull-downs, and other multi-joint activities that would involve larger muscles. In this category, even if you do not train your abdominals, it will help reduce the fat accumulated around the stomach. Abdominal training is important for developing core muscles even though it does not burn calories.
3. Cut back on calories
Calorie deficit is the way to go if you want to lose weight. It refers to the reduction of calories. The next step would be to burn more calories than you are consuming. You might even need to cut 20-25 percent of your daily food intake to reach that stage.
4. Plank hold
Don’t underestimate the power of a plank! It is one of the best exercises that will help strengthen your core and increase muscle endurance. This basic yet efficient bodyweight exercise works the core muscles (rectus abdominis (abs), transverse abdominis (abs), and obliques), as well as the upper and lower back, shoulders, and glutes.
