3 Easy Exercises to Lose that Stubborn Belly Fat Hiding your Abs

It’s impossible to target belly fat specifically when you diet. But losing weight overall will help shrink your waistline; more importantly, it will help reduce the dangerous layer of visceral fat, a type of fat within the abdominal cavity that you can’t see but that heightens health risks.

Fat tends to accumulate around our stomach area, and losing the stubborn inches from our middle can take much more effort than you probably want to put in. While we could speculate and draw conclusions from many different studies all day about the best way to lose belly fat, the following 3 exercises can at least supplement other parts of your lifestyle:

Vertical leg crunch

It’s an amazing workout to lose that belly fat. The vertical leg crunch is similar to a regular crunch. But it requires you to keep your legs straight, which makes the abs work harder and increases the workout’s intensity.

– Lie down with hands behind your head
– Put your legs straight up with knees crossed
– Flex abs to lift head and shoulders off the floor
– Lay back down
– Keep legs extended in the air the whole time
– Exhale when you flex; inhale when you lay back down
– Do 1-3 sets with 12-16 repetitions


Bicycling is another great low impact cardio exercise for your ‘how to lose belly fat fast’ routine. Not to mention, it’s a great way to travel or see the countryside. Depending on the speed and intensity the average person can burn between 250 to 500 calories during a 30-minute bike ride.

Reverse crunch

When wondering how to lose belly fat for women, reverse crunches can be your solution.

– Lie flat on the floor with arms at your sides
– Cross your feet and lift them off the floor so your knees create a 90-degree angle
– Contract ab muscles and lift head and shoulders off the ground
– Exhale when you contract; inhale when you lower back down
– Do 1-3 sets with 12-16 repetitions
