5 Exercises To Lose Belly Fat
First of all, there is nothing called “spot reduction“. So, you will have to combine these exercises in your overall workout to see results. The progress can be slow, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Having said that, here are some exercises that can help you get rid of the extra fat around the abdomen.
Fitness trainer Bhavna Harchandrai recently took to her Instagram account to share 5 exercises that can help you lose weight, which you can do standing up.
1. Knee tuck in
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Keep a dumbbell in your hands at a 45-degree angle on your right side. Now, bend your right knee and bring it to your chest. Repeat on the other side.
2. Standing obliques
Hold a dumbbell in your right hand at the side. Place the left hand behind your head and lower your body from the waist (like in a squat position). Keep your core tight and bend on the right side, bringing the dumbbell near your ankle. Now, return to the initial position, and repeat. Do the same on the other side.
3. Wood chopper
Stand with your feet wide apart and hold a dumbbell horizontally in your hands. Now, bring the dumbbell over your right shoulder and slightly bend your right knee. Now, lower yourself and twist, bringing the dumbbell near the left foot as you bend your left knee. Keep your core tight when you do the exercise.
4. Standing pike crunch
Stand up straight and hold the dumbbell horizontally in your hand. Now, bring your hands over your heads and keep your back straight. Now, kick forward with your right leg as your lower your hands. Do it alternately on both legs. Remember to keep your core engaged.
5. Knee twists
Stand straight and hold the dumbbell vertically in your hands. Now, twist your body side to side, bringing your right knee closer to your left elbow. Repeat on the other side and do it alternately while keeping your core engaged.
