Exercises to Remove Belly Fat

These are the days of well toned body and well toned abs. However, not all of us have the time to go to a gym, this is when the exercises to remove belly fat come in handy. These exercises can be done both at the gym or at home.
Most of us spend our days sitting in front of the computer all day long. Added to it, we have a diet which is full of junk food. This leads to weight gain problems, especially, around the abdominal area. At the same time, most of us find it difficult to actually spare some time and go to the gym. However, would it not be great if we knew some exercises to remove belly fat, which we can do at home easily? There are some of us, who go to the gym regularly, yet find it difficult to shed off weight around the abdominal region. I will agree with the fact, that shedding weight from the abdominal region is not an easy task, but with consistent efforts and right abdominal exercises, it is very much possible.

Easy Ab Workout Exercises

When we talk about exercises to lose belly fat at home or in the gym, there are a few exercise tips to remove belly fat fast, which one must remember. The abdominal workout should consist of exercises for the upper abdominal region, lower abdomen and the obliques. If any one of them is missed out on, then it will be very difficult for you to achieve, what you have been looking forward to.

V Crunches: This is a wonderful exercise for the upper as well as lower abs. As a matter of fact one of my favorite as well. To do this exercise lie back on your exercise mat. Extend the legs straight in front of you and your hands above your head. Now slowly lift up your legs till they are perpendicular to the floor. Gradually lift your upper body and try to touch your toes with your hands. Keep your legs where they are and slowly lower your torso, but do not let your shoulders touch the floor. Lift your shoulders again to repeat the exercise.

Side Bends: To work your oblique muscles, so that you get rid of your love handles, do not forget to include this exercise in your workout. Stand with your legs wide apart and hands next to your thighs. Now slowly bend sideways to your right side sideways and extend your left hand above your head straight out. Slowly come back to the starting position and now bend sideways to the left side. This time extend the right hand above your head. This is one repetition of the exercise. When you are doing this exercise, you bend only sideways and your body is well aligned.

Leg Lifts: A very effective exercise to remove stomach fat are the leg lifts. It can easily become a part of the easy ab workouts for girls. Lie on the floor, extend your legs in front of you and place your hands next to your buttocks and NOT under your buttocks. Lift the legs up in the air, till they are perpendicular to the floor. Gradually lower the legs, till they are about 6 to 8 inches off the floor. Lift your legs up again and continue with your repetitions. Till all your repetitions for the set are complete, do not let the legs touch the floor.

Sit-Ups: Very effective exercises for the upper abdominal muscles are the sit-ups. Lie on the floor and extend your legs out straight. Extend your hands behind your head. Pressing your thigh bone into the ground and using your hands to swing up, sit up straight and then come back to the floor to repeat the sit-ups again. It is better to use your hands, so that there is momentum and you are able to work the upper abdominal muscles.

Boat Pose: Lie on the floor with your legs extended out straight. Lift your legs about 6 to 8 inches off the floor and simultaneously lift your torso off the floor and extend your hands out straight in front of you. Hold this position initially for a count of 15. Slowly lower your torso and your legs and repeat the exercise again.

Along with these easy ab workout exercises, it is also important that you include some cardiovascular exercises in your workouts. You can opt for simple exercises like brisk walking, cycling, walking up and down the staircase, etc. for better results from your ab workouts. If you suffer from any back ailment, then it is best to seek medical advice, before you start with the ab workouts.
