New Workout to Burn Belly Fat
Looking for a quick new routine to blast belly fat? If you can keep up with the pace, you can do a lot more to get toned and fit in 15 minutes than you think.
Burning belly fat involves a lot of factors, and in the end, it’s not really possible to focus your weight loss efforts on any one part of your body. But if you get intense enough in any workout, you can totally boost your fat-burning results in general and get at that annoying belly fat.
In addition to burning fat, you can also tone the muscles in your abs and core to help tighten things up. This is the only spot-training that’s really possible, but combined with total body fat-burning, it can go a really long way.
In today’s workout, you’re going to do a little bit of both.
The 15-Minute Flat Belly Workout
Just like the title says, all you need is 15 minutes for this one. Add it to the end of a workout, or throw it into your weekend to boost results.
Run through the following circuit, without resting between exercises.
1. Jump Rope Warm-Up
Jump rope is a great way to get started with any routine, especially if you’re tight on time. It gets your heart rate up, and it burns a ton of calories off the bat. Start this fat-burning routine with 2 minutes of jump rope.
2. Crunches on Stability Ball
Grab a stability ball, balance against it with our lower back, and hold yourself in place with your feet planted firmly against the floor. Engage your abs, and make sure you don’t pull on your neck as you do your crunches. Do 15-20 reps.
3. Ab Twist with Cable Pulley
Find a cable machine and set a single hand grip at mid-height. Standing with your legs at shoulder width and holding your posture steady, grab the hand grip with both hands and pull as you twist to the side. Do 15 reps on each side.
Grab a dumbbell weight and stand with feet at hip-width. Start by holding the dumbbell overhead, and bend slightly at the knees. Then engage in a full squat to the floor, but as you do, bring the dumbbell down and across your body to the opposite side. Do 12-15 reps on each side.
5. Lower Ab Bicycle Crunch
Lying face-up on a mat, start by holding your legs straight up in the air with your knees locked. Slowly and in control, bring one leg down close to the floor but without touching. Hold here for 3 counts, return to starting, and repeat with the opposite leg. For this one, do as many as you can until you reach muscle failure.
6. Russian Twist
Get back on your stability ball, but this time hold a medicine ball in both hands. Extend it out in front of you, slightly overhead, and bring the ball down to one side as your twist with your core muscles. Return to starting, and twist to the opposite side. That’s one complete rep. Try to knock out 20 reps for this one.
7. Jump Rope Cool-Down
It’s not much of a cool-down, but another minute of jump rope is a great way to round out this fat-burning routine.
And there you have it. In just 15 minutes you’ll burn a ton of calories and rev up your metabolism to keep yourself on track with your weight loss goals.
