Discover The Best Exercises To Lose Belly Fat Fast
To be completely honest with you the best exercises to lose belly fat aren’t going to be a bunch of sit-ups nor crunches. But it’s going to be the really tough exercises that make fat burn and muscle grow.
Full body exercises such as burpees, squats, cleans, lunges, push-ups, step-ups and pull-ups should make up the majority of your workout routine and they’re really going to be the best exercises to lose belly fat. It’s really a shame to see people waste their money on an ab informercial gadget that doesn’t do anything but make them look silly.
In this world there really aren’t any shortcuts to success and the same holds true for losing the belly fat. First of all make sure you’re on a great nutrition program such as the one found in the Flat Belly Formula and make sure you stick to the program consistently.
Then you can start taking care of the workout routine by doing mostly full body resistance training and high intensity interval training. Heavily incorporate both of those training principles into your workouts 4-5 times per week and you should see the fat to start melting off.
And then you can start to narrow in on your stomach to tone up and lean out the midsection. I’m not going to B.S. you and tell you that sit-ups and crunches are a complete waste of time because they aren’t.
They will help tone up your abs but there are other exercises out there that are a lot more effective at getting results than doing sit-ups all day. In the video below I’m demonstrating my favorite abdominal focused exercise to lose belly fat.

The plank is really one of the simplest exercises in the world and it’s also in my humble opinion the absolute best frickin’ ab exercise out there. If you’re looking for the best fat burning exercise then I wouldn’t consider this to be it but if you’re looking for abdominal toning then this is the winner of a chicken dinner.
There are a ton of different variations you can do with the plank and I only really touched on a few of them in this video. The key is going to be to start with the most basic version and then keep progressing to more difficult variations so you can challenging your body into delivering results.
I wouldn’t recommend holding a plank for 5 minutes when you start to become more advanced because that’ll be wasting your time. Instead try using one of the variations I’ve included above and also try to throw this plank exercise into the end of one of your workout sets.

This way you will still be able to train your abdominals while you are “resting” before you go to your next set up pull-ups. This is a great way to catch your breath before your next set and you’ll also be doing something instead of just standing there watching TV or talking to your fellow gym buddies.
If you’re interested in a full belly fat blasting workout routine then I highly recommend taking a look at my Ultimate Ab Workout video blog post. I don’t do any sit-ups or traditional crunches in the workout but you’ll still get a great ab workout that’ll help you lose belly fat.
The best exercises to lose belly fat are usually the most primitive full body movements as they’ll not only burn fat but they’ll also build more lean muscle. And we all know that lean muscle is going to burn more fat as well so the more the marrier.
