how to lose belly fat

If you’re ready to step up your fat-burning game, then you should do this routine! It’s very low impact but it’s going to pack-a-punch in boosting your metabolism to burn more calories.

The goal here isn’t spot reduction because that is literally impossible.

Instead, this routine will be taking a wholesome approach to supercharge calorie burn to help flatten your stomach. It’s perfect for anyone who loves working out at home. But it’s also very effective for anyone who wants a quick finisher routine at the gym.

1. Standing Torso Twist

This is a pretty fun workout to do. It’s very low impact, so you won’t have to jump or engage your knees too much. The goal of this exercise is to help shape your obliques, upper and lower abdominal.

Standing ab workout

How to do it
  • Stand shoulder-width apart as shown in the image above with both hands extended in front of you like a fighter.
  • Now rotate your upper body to the right as far as possible while tightening your abs throughout the movement.
  • After about one second do the left as far as possible.
  • Repeat the required amount of reps in each set.

2. Elevated Elbow Side Plank Dips

For this plank variation, you’re going to elevate the upper body. You can use any surface like a step or any stack that is at least 8-10 inches off the ground.

Just make sure whichever surface you use is very stable and won’t move during the exercise. The reason for the slight elevation is to help engage all of your abdominal muscles a lot more.

How to do it
  • Get into position A as shown in the image above with your right elbow supporting your upper body.
  • You are going to dip your hips as low as possible as shown in position B.
  • Hold that position for one second.
  • After that, raise your hips back into position A and repeat the required amount of reps for each set.

3. Feet Elevated Side Plank Dips

Now using that same elevated surface, you’re going to do the reverse. Instead, your feet will be elevated with your upper body at the lower level. Not only will you work every single muscle in your midsection but also your lower body muscles will be engaged.

How to do it
  • Get into the plank position as shown in position A with your feet on the elevated surface and right elbow supporting your upper body.
  • You’re going to slowly lower your hips as low as possible for about one second.
  • Then raise it back to the starting position and repeat the required amount of reps.

Note: When you get into position A make sure that your entire body is parallel to the ground and your core tightened.

4. Full Elevated Side Plank Dips

You’re going to finish the routine with another plank variation that will also hit your midsection hard but very low-impact.
