"How To Exercise To Lose Belly Fat Without Weights"
Today, many people struggle to exercise and lose unwanted weight around the waist and stomach.
Due to busy schedules, many people do not have time to join a gym or use weights to exercise. Thankfully, there are a variety of exercises so that you can learn how to exercise to lose belly fat.
The following ten exercises can be used in conjunction with cardio and a healthy diet to increase abdominal muscle and reduce belly fat.
Exercise 1. Crunches
Crunches are the most basic exercise that you can do to increase abdominal muscle and decrease abdominal fat.
To do crunches correctly, lie flat on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
Hold your hands by the sides of your ears. Take a deep breath before you crunch and lift your head and chest using your abdominal muscles.
Try to touch your forehead to your knees before moving down slowly.
Exercise 2. Leg Lifts
It is strange to think that a leg exercise could reduce belly fat, but this exercise is actually very effective.
Lie flat on the floor with your hands at your sides, knees bent, and palms and feet on the floor.
Lift one leg straight up so that your calf is parallel to the ground, keeping your abs tight so that your lower back does not leave the ground.
Lower your leg and repeat with the other leg.
Exercise 3. Air Cycling
Air cycling is another strange sounding but effective way to learn how to exercise to lose belly fat.
Laying flat on the ground, placing your palms flat on the ground.
Raise your legs with knees bent and slowly move your legs in a cycling motion in the air for two minutes, without lifting your hands from the ground.
Exercise 4. Hip Raises
Start by lying on the ground with your palms flat on the ground.
Lift both legs in the air together so that your feet point toward the ceiling and your legs are perpendicular to the ground.
Raise your hips up off the ground and hold for two seconds before lowering.
Exercise 5. Trunk Rotation
Lie flat on the floor with your knees at a 90 degree angle with feet in the air.
Your arms should be flat on the ground and perpendicular to your torso.
Rotate your hips to the side so the side of the calf is touching the ground while keeping your palms flat on the ground.
Exercise 6. Stomach Twists
Stand on a flat surface with feet close together and elbows bent, hands in front of your face.
Slowly rotate your upper body to the side without moving your legs from their original position.
Exercise 7. Sit Ups
Sit ups are similar to, but not the same as, crunches.
Lie on the floor with palms flat and legs in the air, with knees bent at a 90 degree angle.
Use your abdominal muscles to move up the upper portion of your body without pulling your neck up.
In sit ups, you must sit the whole way up for the most effective exercise.
Exercise 8. Reverse Crunches
Starting with your legs in the air and knees bent like a normal crunch, lift your hips and bring your knees toward your upper body.
Instead of lifting your upper body toward your legs, you are lifting your legs toward your upper body.
Exercise 9. Side Crunches
Lift legs into the air with knees bent at right angles.
Then, rotate your hips so that your legs (still bent) are flat on the ground on one side of your body.
Then, do crunches as usual, while keeping your legs flat on each side of your body.
Do the same number on each side.
Exercise 10. V Crunches
This exercise is similar to a normal crunch, but may be an even more effective way to learn how to exercise to lose belly fat.
Start with your head and shoulders slightly lifted off the ground.
Then, crunch your knees up toward your upper body.
A V crunch is like a reverse crunch but your head and shoulders are held slightly off the ground for the entire movement.
