With These 9 Exercises Your Belly Fat Will Disappear in 2 Weeks
Anyone with a BMI of 25 or higher is considered overweight. If you’re like most people with our comfortable lifestyles, fighting fat is never ends. Here are nine exercises that put you ahead of the game.
Lying flat on your back:
1. Butterfly crunch
Pull the soles of your feet closer to your body. Relax the knees out to the sides. Put your hands behind your head. Curl your shoulders a few inches of the floor toward your feet, then lay back flat again. Repeat this 10 times. This targets the core abdominal muscles that also play a role in the posture and stability of the entire body.
2. Side-to-side bends
Raise your knees, arms at your sides. Let the soles of your feet rest on the floor. Reach for the right foot with the right hand, keeping the arm, head, and shoulder on the floor. Straighten out and repeat for the left side with the left arm. Do 15 repetitions. This enhances both flexibility and the lateral muscles of the sides that join hip and shoulder.
3. Fingers to toes
Lie flat on your back, with the legs up and extended straight to the ceiling, arms down at your sides. Bend up and reach for your toes with both hands. Keep the small of your back flat on the floor. Repeat 15 times. This is an excellent total-body exercise that particularly works the abs.
4. Scissor crunches
Lay flat with your fingers behind the head. Keep the abs tight as you raise the left knee and touch it to your right elbow. Go back to the starting position and do the same on the other side, raising your right knee to your left elbow. Do this 15 times alternating from one side to the other. This is another exercise that works several muscle groups while targeting the core.
5. Resistance crunch
