Burning stomach fat requires increasing your overall calorie burn to melt fat from your entire body. Combination strengthening and cardio exercises not only burn fat, but build muscle tissue to tone and firm all over. Simulation exercises are those that mimic real life movements and maximize your fat burning capability, melting off stomach fat.
Begin in a plank or pushup position, with your hands on the floor slightly wider than your shoulders and your feet approximately hip-width apart. This is a balance move that engages your core as a stabilizer.
Bend your knee to bring one leg forward under your hip and toward your elbow, leaving your other leg straight behind you. Focus on keeping your core engaged and not raising your rear end.
Return the first leg to the starting position and bring the opposite leg forward. To engage your core even more, bring the forward moving leg to the opposite elbow, working your oblique muscles and slimming your waist.
Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, hinge at your waist and bend your knees to come into a squat position.
Focusing on keeping your core engaged, use your legs to power yourself explosively upward, straightening your entire body and raising your arms, and causing your feet to leave the floor.
Land softly, bending your knees as you do so and land on your whole foot. When you land, automatically bend your body back into the starting position.
Tips & Warnings
- To burn the most amount of stomach fat, keep your core constantly engaged through the entire movement. Perform repetitions quickly enough to raise your heart rate, which will increase the amount of calories that you burn.
- Use caution when performing movements that require leaving the ground. Always perform such moves on a flat, even surface, wearing shoes.
