There are plenty of lose belly fat exercises that you can try. But before doing any form of exercise it is important that you get checked out by your doctor. He will run a full medical check up and make sure that your belly fat is down to poor diet and lack of exercise and not some underlying illness. If you are extremely overweight, he will also discuss an exercise plan with you and will probably suggest that you only do workouts under close supervision. Please pay attention to his advice as we don’t want anyone have heart problems trying to get a flat stomach.
So assuming you are fit and healthy, lets begin. The first thing you always do is warm up. This helps to prevent exercise and is the reason why all sports people do a warm up routine before they do any form of workout. Gentle stretching is all that is required.
Now lie flat on your back with your hands by your sides. Take a deep breath and holding it in, gently lift the upper part ofyour body about 10 cms off the ground. You are using your abdominal muscles to do this not your hands. Hold for 10 seconds and then relax. Sounds simple right? Go and try it and see how hard this one is at least at the start. But practice makes perfect and it is a great tummy toner. A word of warning though. If your belly fat is as a result of a recent pregnancy and you have had a C section you should definitely not be doing this exercise until you get the all clear from your doctor. This also goes for anyone who has had abdominal surgery recently.
You may also want to firm up your bum. So lie flat on your front and keeping your leg straight, raise your right leg 10 cm off the ground and hold for 10 seconds. Slowly lower to the floor. Repeat for your left leg. Practice this one increasing the number of lifts you do and soon you will have a bum a teenager would be proud to own.
Be warned though. If you experience pain when exercising this is a signal from your body that your muscles are hurting and you should not ignore it. Yes body builders will but only when training for a specific result. The no pain no gain rule does not apply to do it yourself exercise techniques. The pain you are feeling is a build up of lactic acid in your muscles thus telling you that they are not getting sufficient oxygen. Never ignore it. Stop and start again tomorrow.
