How To Hack Belly Fat

Lose Those Love Handles By Following These Quick And Easy Steps

Losing belly fat is not just because of an obsession for looking good just like the models and celebrities we all look up to.

A flat and toned tummy also shows that we love our bodies and take good care of ourselves. But faced with a society chock full of modern luxuries, we sometimes get to a point that we choose comfort over discipline.

Instead of focusing on health and wellness, we get blinded by chasing after the ‘good things in life’. This mindset of laziness is what leads us to dislike working hard to gain the dream body that we want to achieve.

Below are easy exercises that anyone can do anywhere, at anytime:

Workout At A Glance

What To Do Perform the moves in the order listed. Hold each for 10 seconds, bracing your abs (as though a ball were going to hit you in the stomach), but don’t hold your breath. Repeat 4 to 8 times. Try the Main Move first. If it’s too difficult, do the Make It Easier option. When you can complete 8 reps of the Main Move with ease, progress to the Make It Harder version. Do this 15-minute routine once a day, at least an hour after you wake up, so your muscles are warm.

For Faster Results: Do 30 minutes of cardio, such as walking, jogging, or cycling, most days, with one long, 60- to 90-minute workout each week.

1. Main Move: Controlled Static Curl

Lie with right knee bent, foot flat on floor, left leg extended, hands under lower back. Lift elbows and inhale deeply. As you exhale, contract abs and curl head, neck, and shoulders to raise shoulder blades a few inches off the floor. Hold and lower, including elbows. Do all reps, then switch legs.
Make it easier Simply brace abs, hold, then release, keeping head on floor.
Make it harder Lift extended leg a few inches off floor and hold as you raise and lower upper body. Switch legs and repeat.

2. Main Move: Side Bridge

Lie on left side, propped up on elbow, with top foot in front of bottom so both feet are on floor. Contract abs as you raise body, forming a straight line from toes to shoulders. Do all reps, then switch sides.
Make it easier Lie with legs bent behind you and raise torso and thighs, resting on bottom knee.
Make it harder From Main Move, rotate body to face floor, supporting yourself on forearms and toes, legs and torso in a straight line. Hold, then rotate back to Side Bridge. Do all reps, then switch sides
