One of my most common questions people ask is how do I get rid of belly fat through exercise?
Here are three moves to try! put them together in 30 second HIIT, 30 second recovery with a 30 second warm up and cool down for a great 10 minute workout!
These “Slimnastics” are great because you want to do multitasking moves that not only tone the abs but also provide cardio so that you slim away any fat over the muscle.
Snow Angel Burpee jacks: Squat, put hands on the ground, jump back into a plank, hop the legs wide and then back in towards each other twice while still in a plank, jump back up to a squat and then jump into the air, do 2 jumping jacks then jump down to the ground again! Do 30 seconds at a time. Then recover with a march or jog in place
Next do a jack and jump tuck
! Do one jumping jack for momentum, then jump and use your abs to pull your knees up toward the belly button level. Land with a soft bend in the knees and repeat for 30 second intervals. Recover.
Finally, do mountain climber/high knee combo
. Place your hands on the floor and jump back into a plank, then pull your right knee in towards the chest and then back to a plank, then the left knee to chest and back to the plank and fast succession for the count of 10. Then jump back into a squat and jump up in the air and bring your knees to a high jog front of you with your hands extended from your bellybutton level so that your knees tap your hands, do this for 10 seconds and repeat three reps.
Also don’t forget to drink a lot of water, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, include probiotic Kefir, and limit processed foods. Alcohol is also known to make you bloat in the belly area. Some people should also figure out if gluten or dairy is affecting belly bloat by using an elimination diet.
Fitness, fit it in! Nikki
