Would you like a tight, toned tummy?

Would you like to see your waistline shrink?

If so, these ab exercises for belly fat are perfect for you!

This is one of my all-time favorite ab workouts because the exercises target every single core muscle in different ways.  These ab exercises are more fun than plain old crunches and planks and will help shake up your workout routine.

We’ll be hitting your upper, lower and oblique abdominal muscles using multidirectional movements and leg lifts that will truly engage your core.  The different movements will activate all areas of your core and waistline. (YASSS!)

You can throw a few of these exercises into your own routine.  But when you do all 6 of these ab exercises for belly fat together in one workout they’ll really help burn fat and to tighten your core muscles like a waist trainer.

Ab Exercises for Belly Fat

Bicycle Crunch

Lie with your hands beside your head. Engage your abs to lift your shoulders upward while pushing your right elbow across your body towards your left knee. Fluidly, cycle your feet as you repeat the movement on the opposite side, pushing your left elbow towards your right knee. A crunch on both sides completes one rep. Continue alternating sides, while spinning your feet until you complete your set.

Heel Touches

Lie on the floor with your knees bent. Your arms should be down by your side with your palms on the floor. Lift your shoulders off the floor. This will be your starting position. Reach one hand down towards the heel on the same side. Without lowering your shoulders down, immediately return to the start position, then repeat the movement on the other side to complete one rep.

Leg Lifts

Lie with your feet straight up in the air, toes pointed and your arms out by your sides for support. This is your start position. Inhale and lower your legs down until they are about 6 inches above the floor. Exhale and quickly lift your legs back up to the start position to complete one rep. Tip: Put your hand under your body to support your back.

Flutter Kicks

Lay on the floor. Point your toes and lift your feet about 6 inches off the floor. This is your start position. Alternate lifting and lowering your legs in little pulses without letting your feet touch the floor. Continue flutter kicking without letting your feet touch the floor until you complete your set. Tip:  Place your hands under your body to support your back.

Overhead Pendulum

Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Using both hands, lift a dumbbell overhead. This is your start position. Slowly dip the weight to one side. Hold for a count then rock the weight back up and over to the opposite side to complete one rep. Slowing ‘tick and tock’ the weight back and forth like a pendulum, until you complete your set.

Side Dips

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, while holding dumbbells down by your sides. This is your start position. Lower the weight down to one side as far as you can. Exhale and squeeze your abs as you lift the weight back up to the start position to complete one rep. Repeat the movement on the same side for the prescribed number of reps. Repeat the same number of reps on the other side to complete your set. Tip: Protect your neck and look forward not down, while doing the movement.

WOOT WOOT!  That’s it.  Do 4 full rounds to complete the workout.
