The Best Way to Lose Belly Fat

Contrary to popular belief, the best way to lose belly fat isn't through jogging and just performing endless sets of crunches, sit-ups, and side bends. The secret to losing fat in your stomach area is to perform strength training regularly and to get in a mixture of both steady-state and interval cardio training. Pretty plain and simple! That's why we've rounded up some of the best floor exercises to melt belly fat. When you keep up this regimen along with eating a healthy diet, then the pounds and inches will start coming off.

Reverse Crunches

This list of floor exercises to melt belly fat kicks off with the reverse crunch. Lie down with your lower back flat on the floor. Keep your core tight. Raise your feet back toward your body, and flex your abs hard. Then, lower your legs slowly, maintaining tension in your core before performing another rep. Complete three sets of 10 to 15 reps.

Bicycle Crunches

Lie flat on your back with your hands at the back of your head. Rotate your body up by taking one elbow and bringing it toward the opposite knee. Fully extend the other leg by reaching your heel straight out. Flex your abs hard as you finish, then repeat with the opposite side. Complete three sets of 30 reps.


Side Plank Hip Lifts

For the side plank hip lift, set yourself up against a wall with your heels, butt, and shoulders touching the surface. Align your shoulder with your wrist, and stack your feet on top of each other. Keep your core tight and your glutes squeezed as you tilt and flex your hips straight up and down, maintaining tension in your obliques. Perform three sets of 10 reps on each leg.
