Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides. Lower into a deep squat, sitting back into hips and extending arms in front of chest with palms facing in.
Stand up out of squat, balancing on left leg and lifting right knee in front of hip, as arms extend to sides of shoulders and upper body rotates right. Return to start. Repeat, switching sides. (Tip: Inhale during the squat and exhale on the twist, drawing abs in tighter to spine on exhalation.)
Balancing on right leg, lower into a single-leg squat with right arm driving forward, left arm back, elbows bent.
Push off right foot and leap up and over to left foot, swinging arms open to sides of shoulders (imagine jumping sideways over a large puddle), landing in a single-leg squat on left leg with left arm forward. Hold for 1 count. Repeat to opposite side.
Stand with feet together, knees slightly bent, hands clasped behind head, and abs engaged.
Balancing on left leg, extend right leg out low in front of body, toe pointed, as upper body twists to right. Return to start; repeat on opposite side. (Tip: Inhale when feet are together and exhale on rotation, drawing abs in tighter on exhalation.)
Nothing burns belly fat faster than crunches, which occupy the number one position in fat-burning exercises. Now, it’s time that you start performing this exercise.
How To Do 1. Lie down flat on a mat with your knees bent and feet on the ground. Alternatively, you can also lift your legs off the floor at a 90-degree angle. (See picture). 2. Lift your hands and place them behind your head, or keep them crossed on your chest. 3. Inhale deeply, and as you lift your upper torso off the floor, exhale. 4. Inhale again as you get back down, and exhale as you come up. 5. Do this for 10 times as a beginner. 6. Repeat another two to three sets. Variations Dumbbell crossover punch, shoulder press and side crunch, butterfly crunch. Precautions While performing crunches, instead of entering the full sit-up position, just raise your back a few inches from the ground. This ensures you don’t hurt your back. Also, don’t jerk your head forward while doing crunches. This will put pressure on your neck and result in pain. Just hold your hands above your head and perform the exercise.
Tip: As you lift your torso, do not sit up straight. Your back should make an angle of 30-40 degrees with the ground. Only then you will feel pressure on your abdominal muscles.
