The dreaded belly fat! It seems so much easier to lose weight anywhere else when compared to losing the belly fat. However it does not have to be that way!
There are a lot of mistakes that are made when people are trying to get rid of belly fat. Although losing body fat quickly is possible, it generally takes people much longer than it actually should if you avoid simple mistakes.
Here are some simple tips for being successful. These will get rid of belly fat and will also give you a super great workout.
#1 – Exercise with a lot of intensity!
Your workouts must be intense if you want to get rid of the belly fat. If you train with intensity you will elevate your metabolism (trick your brain) and you will be burning calories even after you are done with the workout. The trick to losing belly fat is having muscle mass and burning more calories. Here is a great example of interval, “metabolic strength training”.
10 overhead dumbbell presses
Now once you have done these exercises (you can use others also) and you have kept with the reps you have done one round. Try doing as many rounds as you can in a fast pace in a 10 minute time frame and only rest when you need to.
#2 – Do interval training after circuit training .
Interval training is by far the best method to get rid get of belly fat and use cardio. It is more effective, more engaging and a whole lot quicker to do. If you would like faster results and a better metabolic result then interval based cardio is the way for you.
This is done by simply alternating between high and low intensities in a systematic way. Push yourself out of your comfort zone, but still in a way where you are in control the entire time.
#3 – Combine your interval training, Cardio and weight training into one great program you do daily for a short period of time.
You can jump rope, do sit ups, pull ups, lift weights, do crunches, run etc. You pick what works for you then set it up in a “program”. Example:
10 squat thrusts
20 bicycle exercises
Again you pick, and then do these as stated above for 10 minutes in the same order. Take a 10 minute break then do them again, if you can keep this up for at least 5 reps or “rounds”. You will be finished with your workout in less than an hour, yet your body will continue to burn fat even when you are finished.
