Aside from being unwanted, belly fat can sure be persistent. Dropping a couple of pounds around the waist is never an easy task, especially when you don’t have fitness routine.

However, some exercises have been proven as more effective at this than the others. And even if you don’t have the time to work out every day, these two moves are sure to obliterate any excess fat “from the face of your belly.”

Crunches

If there is one exercise that can ensure the reduction of belly fat, it’s the good, old crunch. Not only are crunches super-effective at burning belly fat, but when combined with a proper healthy diet, results can be seen in no time.

Here are the steps:

  • Lie on your back and bend your knees while keeping your feet on the floor.
  • With your hands behind your head, start lifting your torso and keep going until your chest touches your knees.
  • Exhale on the way up and inhale on the way down. Repeat this ten times for multiple sets.

Straight Leg Raise

When it comes to packing something extra on your lower belly, people usually turn to abdominal exercises for help.

But this is where they make a mistake, since ab exercises are good at building muscles, but can’t really help you lose fat.

Instead, you need an exercise that includes multiple muscle groups. The straight leg raise is one of those exercises, as it works your lower back, thigh, glute, and abdominal muscles.

And here is how it’s done:

  • Lie on your back and place your hands beneath your glutes. Make sure your back is completely on the floor and that your toes are pointing outwards.
  • Raise both legs upwards until you reach a 90 degree angle, without bending your knees.
  • Then, start lowering your legs, but not all the way down – keep them as low as possible without touching the floor.
  • The key to this exercise is to keep your back pinned to the ground. This way you force your abs and lower back to work more, which will in turn shed that belly fat.
  • Repeat this movement ten times for a few sets.
