Belly fat isn’t just annoying and doesn’t just ruin your figure – it also causes high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes and strokes. According to one study, people with excess fat on their belly are far more likely to die prematurely, which is a big reason to melt it as soon as you can.
Although a diet + regular exercise might work well, today we’ll present a simple 3-day exercise plan that will melt all the fat from your belly and will take only 6 minutes of your time. Just be consistent with the plan and you’ll notice incredible results soon.
Here’s the core training set:
The first part of the core-training regime includes 3 exercise which should take more than 5 minutes of your time. Repeat the sessions twice if you do have the time and the results will come even sooner.
Skyscraper (10 per side)
Go into a plank position and squeeze your core, then pull yourself up on one arm into a side plank position and extend the other arm up. Rotate back to the original position and do the plank on the other side.
Windshield Wipers (10 per side)
Lay on the floor with your legs extended to the sides, then raise your legs up and start moving them from side to side (like windshield wipers). Keep your back on the floor at all times.
Army Crawls (36 steps)
Go down in a normal plank and squeeze your core, then start crawling forwards and backwards for 36 times.
On the second day, you should try 4 more advanced exercises.
Breakdancer (15 per side)
Go into a normal plank, then touch the right side of the floor with your left foot and the left side of the floor with the right foot. Alternate between the legs 15 times per side.
Skydiver (30 seconds)
Lay down on your stomach on the floor and put your arms on the back of your head. Now, raise them upward while squeezing the glutes, then hold for 30 seconds and repeat again.
Dead Bug (10 repetitions)
Lie down on your back on the floor with your arms extended up and your hips, feet and knees at 90 degrees. Now, extend the left leg and reach with your right arm to the floor and keep your back pressed into the ground. Squeeze your glutes and repeat on the other side.
Thread The Needle (10 per side)
Go down in a straight arm plank, then into a side plank. Now, rotate your hips to the floor and try reaching with your free arm underneath your body like threading a needle. Rotate back and repeat the exercise 10 times, then switch sides.
The last day involves 4 exercise which may be the hardest, but they also work best.
Crab Kicks Into Superman (6 per side)
Go down into the crab position – this means lifting your left leg up and trying to reach the left toe with the right arm. Next, go into a straight arm plank, then raise your right arm and leg into the Superman position. Repeat the movement on the other side.
Star Leg Raise (10 per side)
Go down in a side plank, then raise one of your legs up. Go back to the floor and repeat again. Keep the toes pointing forward at all times.
Side V-Ups (10 per side)
Lay down on your side on the floor, then raise your legs up and try reaching them with the left elbow. Switch sides and repeat the exercise 10 times.
Over\Under (10 per side)
Stand upright and squat down to one side, then step to that side and go back to the original position (the move is similar to stepping over a fence). Do the exercise 10 times per side.
All these exercises are aimed at your belly fat and muscles and will provide results if you’re consistent and eat healthy. They will also strengthen your core and make your back stronger, which means no lower back pain.
