I keep getting emails asking me how to lose lower belly fat in the fastest possible way and I keep giving the same answer – you cannot spot reduce fat from just one part of your body – you need to lose fat all over in order to lose lower belly fat – there are no 6 second abs routines!
In this article I will show you 3 top fat burning exercises that should be included in your weekly quick exercise workouts – of course don’t forget to utilize a high quality long term diet plan alongside these exercises if you want to ensure you consistently lose fat – then you will most certainly lose lower belly fat!
So here are 3 of my top fat burning exercises to lose lower belly fat:
1.) Front Squats
Front squats are a fantastic way to develop both lower body strength and your core and if incorporated into a highly intense routine, are extremely powerful in helping you lose lower belly fat. This exercise should be performed with only your body weight until you can comfortably manage 3 sets of 25 reps without muscle soreness – you can increase the intensity of the front squat by using dumbbells or a barbell, as shown in the picture.
Begin the front squat exercise by standing with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Slowly draw your stomach in and initiate movement from the hips, not the knees, descend slowly so that your butt gently touches the back of your calves. Should you be unable to descend this low without going onto the balls of your feet then only go as far as you can before your heels start to rise – this is a sign of a restriction of motion in your calves and can be improved with practice and plenty of stretching.
2.) Dumbbell Rows
The second of our top fat burning exercises is well known to work your lats but also is of special benefit to your core muscles and will help you in your quest to lose lower belly fat.
To perform dumbell rows place your left knee and left hand on a bench as shown in the picture. With the dumbell in your right hand and making sure your back is straight and stays straight throughout the exercise, pull the dumbell towards your hip ensuring that the only body part moving is your arm.
Try not to drop or raise your shoulder and focus on clean, smooth movements up and down – also be sure to keep your supporting leg stationary on the ground – if you cannot do all of these things it is likely you are using too heavy a weight. Repeat for 10 reps on your right side before moving to your left and completing another 10 reps. Aim for 3 sets.
3.) Reverse Crunch
Finally, the reverse crunch. This is one of the top fat burning exercises to isolate the lower six pack muscles – regular crunches that you are probably more familiar with work on the upper abdominals, this is a fantastic exercise to sculpt your abs and really can help you to lose lower belly fat pronto.
Begin by lying on your back on something soft and place your hands beside you – be careful that you do not use them to help you in any way other than for balance during the exercise though! Lift your knees and bend them so that they are approximately 90 degrees from the floor.
Contract your abdominals and lift your knees towards the ceiling or back towards your chest, pausing briefly in this position before slowly lowering them back to the start position, allowing your butt to touch the floor. Repeat for between 10 and 15 times for 3 sets. You can make this exercise more challenging by placing weight or a medicine ball between your feet or thighs.
So there you have it; three top fat burning exercises to help you lose lower belly fat and get extreme weight loss. Incorporate these into your routine and be sure to eat healthily utilizing a nutritious fat loss diet menu that is balanced and focused on the long term and you can be sure to burn fat all over and ultimately lose lower belly fat. Good luck – you can do it!
